Avon splits doubleheader

AVON — Avon’s swim teams turned the water in the pool a shade of pink for their Breast Cancer awareness night on Tuesday against visiting Center Grove. The teams promoted a “Pink Out,” and the fans, parents and swimmers responded by displaying their best pink attire.

Avon split the meet, as the Avon boys took a 120-53 win and the girls fell 108-77.

“As a group we were just a little bit off,” Avon coach Jon Karr said. “I’m not exactly sure, but we will sit and talk about why we were not as good as we’ve been this season. We always have meets like this every now and again.

“We’ve been working hard here and in the weight room. Maybe the emotion wasn’t there tonight … we were a little bit sluggish.”

Avon’s Parks Jones, sporting a pink ribbon decal on his face, took down the longest standing record on the Orioles’ books, the 50 freestyle. Jones bested Eric Wollenhaupt’s 1989 record of 21.72, finishing in 21.44.

“I’ve been wanting to break the 50 and last year I broke the 100 (free) from the same guy, something like 23 years,” Jones said. “It’s really cool to just break a record that’s been up there forever.”

Jones also broke his own 100 free record (47.88) from last year, setting the new mark at 46.95.

Avon’s boys won nine of 12 events en route to its victory.

Jones (50 free, 100 free), Grant Lewis (200 free), Chandler Bray (200 IM, 100 breast) and Greg Sprout (500 free) were all individual winners for Avon.

Avon’s squad of Garrett Hammons, Michael Goldhammer, Lorenz and Bray won the 200 IM relay; the team of Lewis, Sprout, Jones and Lorenz took first in the 200 free relay; and Lewis, Sprout, Jones and Bray placed first in the 400 free relay.

Avon’s Katie Qualls took the only two girls’ wins for the Orioles in the 200 IM and 100 fly.
