Talent combined with sheer numbers helped the Methow Valley Killer Whales swim team win two meets against Brewster, Okanogan and Omak last week.

The Methow team hosted Brewster at a dual meet in the Wagner Memorial Pool Thursday (June 27) and then traveled to Bearacuda waters for a three-team encounter Saturday (June 29).

On Thursday the deep roster of Killer Whales outnumbered their rival three-to-one in the water and that was telling in the final point totals. The girls’ team won 192-125, the boys dominated 222-73 and the combined team won 414-198.

At the Brewster meet Saturday the Killer Whales led all comers from start to finish. The Methow girls scored 398 points compared to Brewster, 307, Okanogan, 125, and Omak 115.

The boys again dominated 425 against Okanogan, 181, Brewster, 100, and Omak, 71.

As a combined team the Killer Whales scored 823 points ahead of the Bearacudas with 407, Okanogan with 306, and Omak, 186.

The Killer Whales were scheduled to take on the Omak Manta Rays at Omak Tuesday (July 2). Following the Fourth of July holiday the Okanogan Bullfrogs will be in town for a dual meet at the Twisp pool starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 9.
