Quakers swim past Cadets

CLAYTON — So early into the high school swimming schedule, many teams are very tired entering competitions due to the yardage they have put in so far during the early weeks of training and that tempers a coach’s expectations somewhat.

However, it is always about the competition when the swimmers hit the pool deck and last night the visiting Plainfield Quakers dominated the Cascade Cadets 122-64 on the girls’ side and 121-50 on the boys’ side.

“I thought we had some pretty good swims,” Plainfield coach Chris Cavanaugh said. “We have some young kids on both sides. It is always good to get out in a dual meet and swim some events they normally don’t swim. We are swimming tired right now, so anything that is fast we’ll take.”

While the score was a bit lopsided, the Cadets are a young team with several freshmen in the mix and the adjustments they are making to high school swimming are evident according to coach Paul Williams.

 “They are coming into a different program with more yardage and a totally different way of training at the high school (level),” Williams said. “So, the first three weeks have been an adjustment in practice, meets, sets and all. To a part, they’ve bought in.”

Williams also understood what his team was facing going against the Quakers, but was generally happy with the way Cascade performed.

“I thought our girls swam really well tonight and I do not have any complaints,” Williams said. “Plainfield has a great program, great coaching staff and they’ve got great swimmers. I felt like we held our own. We’ve got some kids that can compete at a high level, but we also have 10 freshmen.”

Plainfield took each of the relays — 200 medley, 200 free and 400 free — on both sides.

Nick Allen (200 and 500 free) and Chris Tice (200 IM and 100 backstroke) were both two-event individual winners on the night and contributed to the relay victories.
