Records fall as Avon sweeps county meet

AVON — Records are made to be broken. And there is no better place than a packed house in front of the home crowd.

In a tournament-like atmosphere, the Avon Orioles broke seven records and just missed another as the boys’ and girls’ teams both defended last year’s county titles at the Hendricks County swimming and diving meet last Saturday.

The Avon girls’ swimming team won its fifth consecutive county title, finishing with 414 points. Brownsburg placed second (265), Plainfield was third (258), followed by Cascade (116), Tri-West (110), and Danville (97).

Avon’s boys finished with 412 points to win and repeat last year’s feat. Brownsburg took second (304), Plainfield placed third (183), followed by Danville (141), Tri-West (127), and Cascade (95).


In the girls’ meet, Avon sophomore Ana Walters broke her own record in the 200 IM (2:10.60), besting her previous time by nearly two seconds. She broke the record in the 100 backstroke (59.03), beating the previous record set in 1997.

Walters also helped her two relay teams win. In the 200 medley relay, she teamed with seniors Liz Wishart and Miranda Fay, and junior Lauren Campbell for a time of 1:51.57, breaking the previous record of 1:52.62 set by last year’s squad.

Walters was also a part of the winning 400 freestyle relay team (3:45.11) with Campbell, senior Elizabeth Kitching, and freshman Hallie Jones.

Walters, who broke both elbows shortly before the start of the 2011-12 season, set the record last year in just her third meet.

“This year, I’ve been working my butt off,” she said. “I’m just better focused and more dedicated than ever.”

Jones won both the 100 (54.81) and 200 freestyle events (1:57.51) and was also part of the winning squad in the 200 freestyle relay (1:43.73) with Fay, Kitching, and Wishart.

“I was really excited,” Jones said. “This is similar to sectionals, so it was very important to me. It helped give me confidence.”
