Girls fall short at Conference Meet
January 6, 2013Cascade High School
The Cascade girls swimming and diving team traveled to DePauw University on Saturday to compete in the West Central Conference championship meet. The ladies crowned 8 conference champions, but it was not enough to win the overall team championship. The meets final score was Greencastle 377 Cascade 374 South Putnam 237 North Putnam 120 .
Coach Williams put the three point loss in perspective. “We came here with every intention of winning the championship. It came down to the last relay and they (Greencastle) were just a tick quicker than we were in that relay. This was a hard fought meet and it stings a little, but we also posted some great times and we still have a lot of season left to go so we will put this behind us and move forward and improve”.
Conference winners for the Cadets were Alexis Brown in the 200 freestyle. Hayley Rosales in the 200 IM and the 100 Butterfly. Tori Breeding in the 100 free and 500 free and Regina Solik in the 50 free and the 100 breastroke. The 200 free relay team of Solik, Rosales, Breeding and Keegan rounded out the wins for the cadets. The ladies also established three new records on the day. Regina Solik broke her own 100 breastroke record of 1:15.24 with a new record time of 1:13.53. The 200 Medley Relay team of Brown, Solik, Rosales and Deweese broke the previous record of 2:02.87 with a new record time of 2:02.20 and the 200 Freestyle relay team of Breeding, Rosales, Solik and Keegan beat the previous record time of 1:48.79 with a new record time of 1:48.58
According to Coach Williams there were more positives than negative in Saturdays meet. “We had some great drops in time by our younger swimmers and we found some areas that need improvement. Big meets have a way of really exposing a team’s weakness. So we will improve in are weaker areas and get better as a team”.
The ladies return to Greencastle on Wednesday night for a dual meet with the tiger cubs.
