Records fall as Avon sweeps county meet

(Continued)

AVON —

“I was coming off a tough meet, so it’s nice to be able to break a record,” Jones said. “But I love being with the team on the relays. That’s probably my favorite part.”

Lorenz broke his own record in the 100 breaststroke (58.63), besting last year’s time of 1:00.58 by two seconds.

A pair of Avon freshmen also did well for the Orioles. Westin Fink won the 500 freestyle (4:51.61) and just missed tying the record time (4:51.41) by .20 seconds. DaeQuan Quinn won the one-meter diving title, finishing with 404.15.

“I was really comfortable with my dives today and my team had great support behind me,” Quinn said. “I was just having fun out there.”

Brownsburg freshman Joe Myhre won the 100 backstroke (54.62) and narrowly missed the record by .02 seconds and Danville senior Grant Callahan won the 50 freestyle (22.47).

For the Orioles, Karr said he was very pleased with the performances of the team’s underclassmen.

“Our boys are a solid group, but the young swimmers are coming in with such confidence,” Karr said. “They expect to win and swim fast. That’s going to bode well when we get to the end of the year with sectionals.

“The competition continues to get better and are nipping at our heels. It was important to take care of business, but realize they’re right there, so it keeps us level-headed. It’s nice to win, but it’s more important to analyze how we swam and where we can improve. You get one shot, otherwise you have to wait another year. I challenged them to take advantage of an opportunity and today they did.”
