“That’s pretty decimating,” Cavanaugh said of the losses. “When you lose five swimmers, it is tough as a team to be that competitive. We just have to coach the kids that are there and improve their times and move through it.”
With some stiff competition from a variety of conferences from around the state including the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference, Hoosier Crossroads Conference, Sagamore Conference, Mid-State Conference, West Central Conference, and an independent (Brebeuf), Saturday’s competition was a good precursor for the upcoming postseason.
“One of the strong points of the meet is you get some teams like Terre Haute South, Brebeuf and Westfield as they are all very strong,” Cavanaugh said. “There are strong teams and talented individuals there also. It gives some of the smaller schools a chance to see quality competition as well.”
