Local youth swimmer goes 5 for 5



Mark Kim won all five events he entered to highlight results for the Lacamas Headhunters age-group swim team at a Sept. 21 meet at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham.

Competing against other 12-year-old boys, Kim posted a 50-yard freestyle time of 23.85 seconds that ranks among the best 50 times for his age group in the country this year. It is the fastest 50 freestyle by a 12-year-old boy in an Oregon Swimming meet over the last year.

Nabil Kalahiki won the 50 freestyle and 50 backstroke for 10-year-old boys.

Sruthi Ravi dropped almost a second off her 50 backstroke time to win that 12-year-old girls race in 30.86.
