From the Sideline
“Hannah Weissman, freshman at Tahoma, returned from the 4A state championship winning the 100 backstroke. Her time of 55.54 seconds was a school record and the 10th fastest time in 4A state history — also qualifying her for All-American consideration. She also placed ninth overall in the 100 butterfly and competed in two relays — the medley team placed third and the 400 freestyle placed fourth. She also finished her season with three individual school records.”
