Eighteen members of Coeur d'Alene Area Swim Team traveled to Wenatchee, Wash., July 6-8 to compete in the Starlight Invitational swim meet.

Three CAST swimmers - Sarah Gonzales, 8, her sister Hannah Gonzales, 14, and Cole Curtis, 12 - received the coveted high point awards for their age group.

Several other swimmers finished in second or third place for the high point awards including Jon Archer (12), Micah Hudlet (12), Gabe Markowski (12), Caleb Markowski (10), Alisa Felshaw (10) and Kyle Jones (15).

Cole Curtis swam a time of 19 minutes, 15.40 seconds in the 1,500-meter freestyle, swimming this event for the first time. This time was fast enough to qualify him for the long course championships in this event until he is 18 years old. Cole also had first-place finishes in the 100 free, 50 fly, 100 fly, 50 breast, 50 free and 200 free.

Other first-place finishers - Matt Chaistain (13) in the 200 fly, Jon Archer (12) in the 50 back, 100 back, and 200 back, Hannah Gonzales (14) in the 100 free, 200 free, 100 back, 400 IM and 200 back, Sarah Gonzales (8) in the 100 free and 50 breast and Devin Selander (14) in the 200 freestyle.

Two relays scored top honors, too. The mixed 11-12 400 medley relay team of Micah Hudlet, Gabe Markowski, Cole Curtis and Jon Archer turned in a dominating performance of 5:12.09, and the mixed 11-12 200 medley relay team of Ashlee Gonzales, Gabe Markowski, Cole Curtis and Jon Archer turned in a similarly dominating time of 2:29.85.

First-time CAST swimmers at this meet included Taylor Johnson (9), Stas (15), Sergi (14) and Dominick Ethridge (10) - all performed very well at their first long course meet.


The Kootenai Ice 18-and-under ASA fastpitch team placed third in the SSUA tournament in Spokane over the weekend.

In pool play the Ice beat the Perfect Storm 10-9. Tori Schuler hit a grand slam for the Ice, and scored the winning run on a double by Kendal Floch.

The Ice then beat the Dawgs 5-4. Alia Cox and Nicole Cameron each went 2 for 2, and Cameron held the Dawgs to one run through five innings. The Dawgs tied it in the sixth on a three-run homer, but the Ice came back to win it when Schuler doubled and scored on Amber Edwards' single.

The Ice then lost 10-1 to the Diamonds. Kodi Kuykendall went 2 for 2 and scored the Ice's lone run on a single by Floch.

With a chance to reach the championship game, the Ice lost to the Menace in eight innings. Cameron held the Menace to four hits, but the Ice left 10 on base.
