Taking on Tumwater and Black Hills at the YMCA of Grays Harbor, Aberdeen stayed close to Tumwater, but routed Black Hills in this Evergreen 2A swim meet on Wednesday.
The T-Birds knocked off the Bobcats, 108-75, while the hosts beat the Wolves, 133-32.
Aberdeen won two events — one individual and one relay. The 200 freestyle relay team of Molly Rabung, Linnea Davison, Naomi Wolfenberger and Shayna Wilson edged Tumwater’s team for the win by just under 3/10ths of a second at 1:58.65.
One event later, Danielle Rowe won the 100 backstroke easily over teammate Rabung at 1:15.67.
AHS head coach Jan Simons cited Davison, Megan West, Mairead Ost and Marlena Luzzi for personal best time swims.
On Wednesday, Aberdeen stays home to take on CCR (Centralia-Chehalis-Rochester).

Pirates 5, Grizzlies 3
Adna’s Regyn Gaffney displayed plenty of speed to run down long balls and deposit them into Hoquiam’s goal for five markers in this Evergreen 1A match at Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.
Hoquiam took a 2-1 lead into halftime on goals from Ellie Quercia (eighth minute) and Sarah Chapin (15th minute). Gaffney, a state sprint champion who is the daughter of former Willapa Valley track ace Shannon Stratton, scored seconds before Chapin grabbed the lead back for the hosts (5-1)
The Pirates got four straight goals from Gaffney in the 51st, 60th, 64th and 67th minutes. Quercia scored her second in the 68th minute, igniting a furious attempt by Hoquiam to get closer.
“They picked up and we let down (after Gaffney’s third goal),” HHS head coach Corri Schmid said. “It was until Ellie scored, then we really picked it back up and tried to score. We just couldn’t. We controlled the first half, but let down in the second.”
Schmid cited goalkeeper Jensina Alvarenga for her efforts in the match.
Today, Hoquiam returns to action at Tenino.
Bobcats 221, Wolves 222
TUMWATER — Playing on the back nine of Tumwater Valley Golf Course, Aberdeen’s Jordan Weiberg carded a personal-best round to help the Bobcats with a wafer-thin non-league match win over Black Hills on Wednesday.
Weiberg shot a 42, with his three other scoring teammates just two strokes behind him, to pace Aberdeen. Jake Scherer earned medalist honors with an even-par 36 for Black Hills.
“We like to squeak them out,” AHS head coach Harley Revel said. “Great play by Jordan. He came up huge today. That’s the best time to have your best round to give us a win by one.”
On Monday, Aberdeen hits the road to take on Chehalis at Newaukum Valley GC.
Aberdeen (221) — Devin Daniels 43, Eric Hagen 44, Justin Cox 44, Brad Farrer 52, Stuart Ball 48, Jordan Weiberg 42.
Black Hills (222) — Jake Scherer 36, Ryan Waldron 49, Gabe Johnsey 50, Shaun Peters 47, Caleb Crawford 51, Ian Forstor 40.

“Cole has been dominating at No. 2 and he was solid today,” Duffy said. “Dillon had a great match. Zach is a solid player and Dillon hung with him.”
