Ballard High School had all five of its winter programs make the playoffs for the first time since the mid 90’s. In addition to boys and girls basketball a number of student-athletes from wrestling, boys swimming, and gymnastics advanced to regionals and on to the state competition in their respective sports.
The following boys swimmers advanced to districts at the University of Washington: seniors Kyle Garrity, Duncan Fowler, Elijah Lancey, and Nathan Powell, juniors Josh Pehrson, Tim Porter, Kellen Reeder, sophomore Andrew Stevens, and freshmen Rory Carlson, Ian Rice, and Nate O’Leary. Junior diver Evan Arends also qualified. The 200 relay team consisting of Garrity, Stevens, Pehrson, and Carlson, as well as Pehrson in the 100 breaststroke advanced from districts and qualified for state as did diver Arends.
