Prep roundup, Nov. 27

Eastern grapplers beat Muncie South.


Brown took top honors in the 200 IM in 2:13.60 and the 100 freestyle in :53.85. She teamed with Brittany Lake, Claire Casner and Lilly Armour to win the 200 medley relay in 2:02.87 before joining with Armour, Casner and Anna Constable to win the 400 free relay in 4:00.95.

Casner was tops in the 100 butterfly in 1:04.84, and Lake paced the field in the 100 backstroke in 1:11.97.

Tori Riggleman, Danielle Pate, Ally Purvis and Hattie Johnson teamed to win the 200 relay in 1:54.03 to round out the Panthers’ winners.

“It was a good meet,” coach Brad Bennett said. “Seeing [Central] so close to Northwestern [earlier in the season], we know they had some swimmers. We swim against them in the summer also, so we knew they had some tough girls. We overcame them with dept. We won our share of events and so did they, but we managed to outscore them in almost everything by taking second, third and fourth in the events they won. At the same time, our girls swam well. The majority of our swims were season-bests. As a coach, it’s nice to see our girls responding well to what we’re doing in practice. They girls are happy but not satisfied, so we’re looking to build on what we’re doing.”


Avery Ewing was a quadruple winner for the Comets (2-1), leading the way to victory in the Hot Dogs’ tank.

Ewing won the 50 free (:28.15) and 100 free (1:04.04). She also swam anchor leg on two victorious relay teams, joining with Alicia Eckart, Callie Burnett and Katie Swartzendruber to win the 200 medley relay in 2:26.08 before teaming with Eckart, Swartzendruber and Madie Vint to win the 200 free relay in 1:55.12.

Burnett added blue-ribbon performances in the 500 free (6:18.56) and 100 breast stroke (1:18.52), and Elena White was tops in the diving portion (138.65) to round out Eastern’s winners.
