Records fall as Avon sweeps county meet



Campbell won the 50 freestyle (25.29), Kitching won the 500 freestyle (5:20.63), and Wishart won the 100 breaststroke (1:08.18).

Brownsburg senior Maddie Ketchem won the 100 butterfly (1:00.53) and Plainfield junior Courtney Coverdale won the one-meter diving title with a score of 455.10.

“I’m very happy for Maddie Ketchem,” Brownsburg coach Joshua Saylor said. “She’s never been a county champion and came back from a concussion earlier this week. I was very pleased today. We have good depth now, much better than last season and our conference meet will be another big step for us.”

Of the inward double dive that earned her a near perfect score, Coverdale said, “I actually just started doing that dive in meets two weeks ago, but I learned it over the summer. I have been working on it during practice a lot lately.”

Avon swimming coach Jon Karr said he enjoyed the way his team competed.

“Our goal is to keep doing things the right way and continue to make progress,” he said. “Our girls really care about one another and they know their teammates are counting on them. It elevates the whole program. It’s fun to watch. They go out and compete for one another and the team.”


Orioles’ sophomore Grant Lewis broke the record by nearly two seconds in the 200 IM (1:57.87) and won the 100 butterfly (53.04).

Lewis helped his team break the record in the 200 medley relay (1:38.66), along with senior Matt Stowe and juniors Christian Lorenz and Greg Sprout, besting the previous time by nearly two seconds. He was also part of the winning 200 freestyle relay (1:30.33) with senior Quinn McPhail, junior Zack Czerwonky, and sophomore Parks Jones.  

“Individual success is great, but nothing is better than winning as a team, sharing that with my teammates,” Lewis said. “To break a county record is fantastic.”

Jones broke the 100 freestyle record (48.18), beating the previous best by .04 seconds, and won the 200 freestyle (1:44.78). He also helped win the 400 freestyle relay (3:19.09) with Stowe, Sprout, and Czerwonky.
