The Hermiston swim team posted several personal or season records at the Last Chance Invite on Saturday in Walla Walla to close out the regular season.

Among the district qualifiers, Hailey Gardner qualified in the 200-meter freestyle, and Kora Tretteen in the 500 freestyle. Halle Thomas posted qualifying times in the 200 individual medley and the 100 butterfly.

Halle Jones, a first-time junior varsity qualifier, also earned a trip to districts in the 100 backstroke.

“They swam with no regrets,” coach Sara Sargent said.

These swimmers will join Abigail Sharon, Georgie Stevenson, Laly Morfin, Bailey Young, Konnie Hahn, Mattison Christensen, McKenna Christensen, Gretchen Barton, Emilee Meyers, and Breanna Simpson at districts in Kelso, Washington, on Nov. 8-9.
