            The Kodiak High School Bears swept the Region Three swimming and diving championships at Skyview High School in Soldotna over the weekend. The girls racked up 115 points, with the boys scoring an even 100.

            Freshman Jori Lindquist broke the region record in the 200 freestyle, with a time under two-minutes, while junior Celeste Beck-Goodell set a new record in the 500 freestyle. Meanwhile, senior Scott Wandersee broke a 1994 record from the diving board.

            Last year the Kodiak girls won all 11 of the events at regions. They followed that up with seven this year. Their first-place victory was 58 points better than second-place Soldotna. Homer was third, with Kenai and Wasilla tying for fourth. It's the third straight region title for the Kodiak girls.

            The boys were 43 points better than runner-up Wasilla. Soldotna was third, followed by Homer and Colony. It's the boys' fifth region crown in seven years.

            Kodiak coach John Lindquist told the Peninsula Clarion that he credits the Bears' performance to the fact that most of his team swims and trains year-round.

            The state swimming and diving championships will begin Friday at Anchorage's Bartlett High School.
