WHS swimmers flex muscle in opener

Tipton's Juday gives Northwestern fits on both ends of the court

Western dominated its season-opening girls swim meet against Kokomo Tuesday night, winning 11 of the 12 events in a 139-46 Panther victory.

The Panthers were perfect in the swimming portion, but the Katfish were winners in the diving competition.

Brittany Lake and Claire Casner were quadruple winners. Summer Brown and Lily Armour were triple winners for Western.

Lake won in the 200-yard individual medley (2:31.75) and 100 breast stroke (1:22.72). Casner was tops in the 50 freestyle (:26.87) and 100 butterfly (1:05.98). Brown came out on top in the 200 freestyle (1:56.21) and 500 freestyle (5:10.11), and Armour touched the wall first in the 100 freestyle (1:01.35). Kelsey Quinn won the 100 backstroke (1:17.33).

In the relays, Lake, Brown, Casner and Amour teamed up to win the 200 medley relay (2:02.04) and Lake, Casner, Amour joined Anna Constable in winning the 400 freestyle relay (4:10.48), and Danielle Pate, Hattie Johnson, Tori Riggleman and Ally Purvis combined to win the 200 freestyle relay (1:55.88).

“I am optimistic of the how the girls did,” Western coach Brad Bennett said. “I had a lot of girls swim lifetime bests in the first meet, and its great to see that times will only drop from here. I am happy with the way that Summer swam. She had two solid times [200 freestyle and 500 freestyle]. I was also excited to see Lake swim. Her 200 individual medley was a fast time. Armour’s 100 freestyle time was a nice time for her. In diving, we finished second, third and fourth. Annie Boytim was second and Christina Wyant was third. It was a great way to kick off the season, and the girls are ready to swim.”

Kokomo’s Hannah Reecer won the diving with a score of 182.30.

“Reecer was our only winner, but I am thrilled that 100 percent of the swimmers dropped times from our time trials two weeks ago,” Kokomo coach Donita Walters said. “Collectively, the ladies dropped a total of 347.2 seconds in this one meet [Tuesday]. The 200 freestyle relay team of Jessica Estep, Sydney Glassburn, Brooke Dill and Sara White swam in a time of 2:01.89, so three of the girls are brand new rookies to the program. Jessica Gates was 10 seconds faster in the 200 freestyle. We had fabulous times, and I am excited to get back into the water with them [today]. Coach Bennett has a very competitive team this year.”
