Prep roundup, Jan. 15

Western sweeps Heights; Northwestern sweeps Eastern


Eastern’s Shawn Tokarcik won the 100 backstroke in 1:03.32.


The Katfish won every event in the Cass tank.

Tyler Schorm, Jordan Bousum, Josh Church and Philip Heilman won the 200 medley relay. Caleb Cook, Bousum, Logan Hawk and Blake Brookshire won the 200 free relay. And Brookshire, Nathan Banush, Adam Harding and Hawk won the 400 free relay.

Individually, Hawk won the 200 free, Banush won the 200 IM and 100 butterfly, Brookshire won the 50 and 100 free, Schorm won the 100 backstroke, and Alex Whiteman won the 100 breaststroke. Times were not available.

“We’re preparing for our conference meet on Saturday. That got moved and [Tuesday’s meet] couldn’t have gone much better for us,” Kokomo coach Jay Glick said. “We won every event and we had some sweeps in there too. Sometimes it’s harder when you’re getting ready for a big meet to have another meet in that week, but they swam pretty well and I was happy with them.”


NW 126, EASTERN 60

The Purple Tigers won every event in their return to the pool after last week’s snowstorm caused teams to miss practices and meets.

Savannah Gamester, Addie Roth, Jenna Harrison and Jordyn Harrison won the 200 medley relay (2:02.92). Kindra Gingerich, Megan Floyd, Mariah Roberts and Jenna Harrison won the 200 free relay (1:53.28), and Gamester, Gingerich, Roth and Jordyn Harrison won the 400 free relay (4:17.73).

Roth and Jordyn Harrison each added two individual wins to finish as quadruple winners. Roth won the 200 IM (2:32.35) and 100 breaststroke (1:16.42). And Jordyn Harrison won the 200 fly (1:06.6) and 500 free (5:47.46).

In other individual races, Alexandria Millikan won the 200 free (2:23.69).Jenna Harrison won the 50 free (27.53), Rachel Johns won diving (202.25), Gingerich won the 100 free (1:01.21), and Gamester won the 100 backstroke (1:06.75)

“Eastern gave us some good competition, we had some good races, pushed the girls,” NW coach Cindy Britten said. The Tigers are getting back into form after last week’s missed time “so they’re not exactly where we want them, but the times were equivalent to kind of what we expected with being out so long. They weren’t bad, but they showed that we’ve been out of the water a little while. But we’ll get there.”
