Bulldogs win dual meet against Giants

BROWNSBURG — Brownsburg swimming and diving coach Joshua Saylor decided to mix some things up in the Bulldogs’ meet against Ben Davis last night. The results came out in Brownsburg’s favor as the girls defeated Ben Davis 107-69 and the boys won, 124-62.

“We took an opportunity tonight as we have very few home meets to swim a lot of the kids around in some different events,” Saylor said. “I think it’s important to give everybody a chance to be part of the success. A lot of kids stepped up and helped us win a meet tonight that don’t always get to do so. I was especially pleased for the kids that spend a lot of meets watching the other kids swim. I was happy they got a chance to get in there and contribute in a significant way.”

Saylor pointed to many swimmers but a few stood out in his mind.

“Alyssa Smock works her butt off and has made improvements,” he said. “Emily Kraatz, Megan Wolf, Bridgette Zollner; all of those girls had some really nice swims. I wanted them to know that there hard work is appreciated. Hope McQueen was a nervous wreck going into the 500 for the first time as a freshman today. I was really proud of her.”

Saylor also singled out Albert Turk, Connor Lucas along with brothers Nathan and Aaron Brooks on the boys’ side

Individual coed winners for Brownsburg included Kyle Baney (200 free), Kristin Verpe (200 IM), Grace Fulwider (50 free), Grason Horvath (diving), Wolf (100 fly), Joe Ancel (100 fly), Joe Myhre (100 free), Avery Chadd (500 free), Brad Green (500 free), Donnie Spencer (100 back), and Kierra Watson (100 breast).

The Bulldogs also had some success winning relays with Kraatz, Katie Thomas, Shelby Smith and Piper Lovett  (200 medley); Smock, Madison Kehr, Clarice Cross and Meghan Schrad (200 free); Baney, Jimmy Breedlove, Diego La Torre and N. Brooks (200 free); and Turk, Grant Anspach, Adam Moll, and Chad Hale (400 free).
