Danville swimmers split with North Putnam

DANVILLE — With cold temperatures outside and snow on the way, the Danville swim teams heated up the pool Saturday against visiting North Putnam.

Danville split with North Putnam as its girls dominated the Cougars 124-45 and the boys narrowly lost by 14 points, 94-82.

“I have about six of them (boys) that are missing with their families out of state for Christmas break … for being so close and not having a full lineup, I can’t complain,” Danville coach Leah Miller said.

On the girls’ side, Miller mixed up the lineup and was pleased with the team’s results.

“Everyone did very, very well with where I put them and what I asked them to do today outside of a normal event,” Miller said.

Danville’s girls won 11 of 12 events sans the 200 freestyle relay, which they lost by just 0.3 seconds.

The squad of Drew Armfield, Sydney Kroll, Renae Schuldt and Grace Austin won the 200 medley relay to start the string of wins.

Sydney Elliot took first in the 100 and 200 free and teammate Kendall Startzman also won two events, the 50 free and diving.

Austin (200 IM), Sydney Kroll (100 back), Schuldt (500 free), Isabelle Mitchell (100 breast), and Carly Kroll (100 butterfly) were individual event winners.

Danville’s 400 free relay team of Sydney Kroll, Carly Kroll, Mitchell and Elliot finished the meet strong with a victory.

Miller said the girls were progressing nicely this season and swam better times at county two weeks ago than in sectionals last season.

“I am OK with where we’re at right now… we have conference in two weeks and we need to replicate or do better than what happened at county, which I have full faith will happen,” Miller said.

Even with missing swimmers, Danville’s boys won five events.

The 200 free relay team of Wesley Lefler, Matt Neilson, Austin Stewart and Devon Berg won in a time of 1:43.62.
