Swimming doesn’t end in Sitka when the state high school meet is over — far from it. Sitka’s two swim clubs, SEAK Swim and the Baranof Barracudas, packed the pool at the Southeast Championships in Juneau December 7-9. At least two swimmers made top-16 national qualifying times in their events. This is how Sitka makes winning look easy by the time swimmers compete in high school. Coach Robby Jarvill’s SEAK Swim team are pictured here range in age from 7 to 18. Front row: Bridger Bird, Matthew Rice, Rudy Atkins
Second: Tucker Conaster, Sam Johnson, Brandon Stevens
Third: Khai Brahnam, Steven Harmon, Joe Harris
Fourth: Andy Rule, Sidney Fleming
Fifth: Bailey Fleming, Max Johnson
Sixth: Cyleena Pellett, Sydnee Kimber
Seventh: Spencer Combs, Brooklyn Sudnikovich-Eddy
Back: Carl Brenner, RJ Miller, Louis Belley
