Prep roundup, Jan. 15

Western sweeps Heights; Northwestern sweeps Eastern


Other individual winners for the Panthers were: Claire Casner (100 butterfly, 1:09.13); Anna Constable (100 back, 1:13.96); Hattie Johnson (100 breaststroke, 1:23.91); and Christina Wyant (diving, 151.0).

Western swept the relays. Lilly Armour, Lake, Ally Purvis and Johnson won the 200 medley in 2:14.92. Casner, Armour, Danielle Pate and Brown won the 200 free in 1:50.52. Casner, Lake, Pate and Brown won the 400 free in 4:00.91.

“We had some really solid swims,” Bennett said. “Summer’s IM time was within a second of the school record and her 500 free time was her best all season and those times were swimming [without being pushed]. She is ready to swim some races.

“Our girls are working hard and they’re ready to show their stuff at conference. They want to win it. They’ve been working toward it since the first day of practice.”

The Purple Tigers won 11 events in their first meet back following a long layoff due to last week’s winter storm. The Tigers got things rolling with a victory in the 200 medley relay as Anthony Catt, Drew Harris, Griffin Longshore and Gray Longshore won in 1:52.34. The two Longshores, Kyle Miller and Joel Austin combined to win the 400 free relay (3:48.66), and Austin, Darren Curry, Will Harris and Drew Harris won the 200 free relay (1:40.38).

Griffin Longshore and Drew Harris were quadruple winners with two individual wins to go with their relay wins. Griffin Longshore won the 200 freestyle (2:02.22) and 500 free (5:29.94). Drew Harris won the 100 free (56.61). And 100 breaststroke (1:13.26).

Also for Northwestern, Will Devaul won the 200 IM (2.18.62), Gray Longshore won the 50 free (24:35), Christian O’Donnell took the diving competition (121.15), and Catt won the 100 butterfly (1:02.40).

“We’ve been off, just like everybody else,” NW coach Cindy Britten said. “We’ve had three practices and for the short amount of practices that we’ve had, I thought the guys did an outstanding job, had some good times. We moved some things around, trying some new things out, trying to get times on people in different events. [I was] just really pleased with the outcome and how the guys swam after the big snow storm.”
