Oriole swimmers rout rival Brownsburg

BROWNSBURG – Bulldogs swimming coach Josh Saylor couldn’t have provided much more of an accurate and honest assessment of Tuesday’s home meet with Avon, and the current disparity between the teams.

“Avon has improved a lot, where now their boys can legitimately have a goal of winning state and their girls can have a goal of finishing well up in the rankings,” Saylor said. “They’re ahead of us on the timeline. Sometimes one team holds the cards in a rivalry for a while.”

Avon’s girls swam to a 125-58 victory, while the boys had a similarly impressive 110-60 margin. The Orioles won 22 of 24 events.

“We competed hard and showed a lot of toughness,” Avon coach Jon Karr said. “This is our fourth meet in seven days, and they were tired and hurting. Times weren’t very fast, but they didn’t dwell on that and continued to race.”

While the divide between the programs is substantial, Brownsburg has its sights set on many other achievements in the pool.

“We have our own goals of winning sectionals and sending a bunch of kids to state,” Saylor said. “That’s what we’re focused on, and we wanted to swim hard tonight no matter what the scoreboard said. The big picture is not jeopardized by what happened here tonight.”

Multiple event winners for Avon’s girls included Ana Walters, Hallie Jones, Lauren Campbell, Natalie Myers, Katie Qualls and Emily Smith. Single winners were diver Caylee Deaton and swimmer Amelia Scanland.

Multiple event winners for the boys were Chandler Bray, Grant Lewis, Parks Jones, Christian Lorenz and Greg Sprout. Single winners were Michael Goldhammer, Joe Rank and Grant Sprout.

One area where Avon will soon improve its boys scoring is in diving, where the young Orioles are almost ready to compete.

“They’re very close,” Karr said. “Hopefully by the next meet we’ll have them ready to go. They’re brand-new kids doing a great job, they just have to get their six dives down.”
