Greenfield-Central will head into the Hoosier Heritage Conference swimming and diving meet with momentum after sweeping New Palestine Tuesday.
The host Cougars won the boys event 142-41 and handled the Dragons 113-73 in the girls meet.
G-C will visit New Palestine on Saturday for the HHC championships. Diving prelims are tonight.
Tuesday, Allen Forbes (200 yard medley relay, 50 free, 200 free relay), Justin Miller (200 medley relay, 100 breast), Isaak Tow (200 medley relay, 200 IM, 100 fly), Drew Logan (200 medley relay, 100 free, 200 free relay, 400 free relay), Jared Tomer (200 free, 100 back), Nathan Graber (diving), A.J. Shelton (500 free, 200 free relay, 400 free relay), Jordan Cermak (200 free relay, 400 free relay) and Jacob Keener (400 free relay) helped the Cougars win every boys race.
“This was a good meet to get back into racing mode leading to conference,” G-C coach Mark Logan said.
For the Dragon boys, Grant Gish was second in the 50 free and 100 backstroke as both NP teams swam ‘off’ events Tuesday.
Victorious for the Greenfield-Central girls were Taylor Young (200 free, 400 free relay), Hannah Reynolds (200 IM, 100 back), Ashley Finney (100 fly), Taylor Young (500 free), Krista Zornes (100 breast, 400 free relay), Erin Kile (400 free relay) and Ashley Finney (400 free relay).
“This was a total team effort and our depth was certainly a key to this evening,” G-C coach Emily Logan said. “This team has been working really hard.”
Addison Virt (50 freestyle), Erin Trimpe (100 freestyle), Shannon Jones (diving), the 200 medley relay of Grace Hornsby, Trimpe, Virt and Rachel Wineman, and the 200 free relay of Trimpe, Virt, Wineman and Jones prevailed for the Dragon girls.
“This was a make-up meet from last week’s weather postponement, and being days out from the conference championship, the swimmers had a chance to swim some non-primary events,” NP coach Steve Maxwell said. “There were several strong swims in these ‘off events’ and, having only had a handful of practices since the new year, the swimmers were able to enter their races without normal expectations.”
