SUBHEAD: Northwestern boys, girls top Logansport

Western’s swimming and diving teams swept Carroll on Thursday night at Flora. The Panther girls squad posted a 153-27 win, and the Panther boys were 147-37 winners.

In the girls side of the meet, Brittany Lake, Claire Casner and Vanderbilt recruit Summer Brown won two individual events apiece to lead Western’s sweep of the events. Lake won the 200-yard freestyle (2:13.17) and 500 free (5:55.21). Casner was tops in the 200 individual medley (2:33.89) and 100 backstroke (1:15.04). And Brown won the 50 free (:25.18) and 100 free (:53.84).

Also winning individual events were Ally Purvis (100 butterfly, 1:14.16); Sabrina Roberts (100 breaststroke, 1:25.87); and Annie Boytim (diving, 188.55).

Western also swept the relay events. Lilly Armour, Hattie Johnson, Lake and Kelsey Quinn won the 200 medley in 2:16.86. Tori Riggleman, Casner, Sara Metcalf and Brown won the 200 free in 2:03.38. Johnson, Purvis, Brown and Armour won the 400 free in 4:07.01.

“We had some nice races. The girls relays were kind of going back and forth with each other all night,” Western coach Brad Bennett said. “We had some good swims. I’m really happy with what they’re doing. A nice amount of season-best swims. No monster drops, but everybody across the board just seems to be dropping tenths or a second here and there every time we swim. It’s the right direction.”

In the boys side of the meet, Connor Hill, Asa Sheffer and Glen Brown won two individual events apiece to lead the Panthers’ sweep of the events. Hill won the 200 free (2:06.03) and 100 backstroke (1:15.31), Sheffer touched first in the 100 IM (2:17.89) and 100 butterfly (:59.04) and Brown won the 50 free (:22.77) and 500 free (4:45.94).

Also winning individual events were Matt Duke (100 free, :54.64); Reggie Manuel (100 breaststroke, 1:12.96); and Cody Cox (diving, 203.30).

In the relay events, Adam Lyons, Manuel, Duke and Aron Barrera won the 200 medley (1:56.77), Duke, Hill, Sheffer and Brown won the 200 free (1:35.29) and Barrera, Zach Zentz, Brown and Manuel won the 400 free (3:46.93).
