The Lindquist sisters competed at the 2012 Western Zone Speedo Championship series last week in Washington.

Tahna Lindquist, a Kodiak High School freshman, picked up the best place with a 49th-place finish in the 100-meter (long course) backstroke with a time of 1 minute, 7.66 seconds.

She was also 66th in the 200 backstroke (2:27.01), 81st in the 400 freestyle (4:41.51), 96th in the 200 IM (2:32.47) 102nd in the 200 free (2:14.38) and 110th in the 50 free (28.78).

Jori Lindquist, a KHS junior, was 96th in the 200 back (2:30.50), 110th in the 50 free (28.78), 118th in the 100 back (1:11.03) and 148th in the 200 free (2:18.26).

The event featured the best swimmers on the West Coast, with more than 100 competitors in each event.

Two weeks ago in Kodiak, Nathan Schauff, Luke James, Talon Lindquist and Saywer Olsen broke a pair of boys 11- and 12-year-old division state relay records during a Kingfishers meet at the Kodiak Community Pool.

The group broke the 200 medley (1:56.12) and the 400 free (3:46.93) records.

Talon also broke the 1,000 free (10:45.87) state record and reset his own 200 back (2:08.47) record.
