Brownsburg swims past Tri-West

BROWNSBURG — Both the Brownsburg and Tri-West girls’ swimming teams took their first competition plunges this season Tuesday night.

While the score was a bit lopsided in Brownsburg’s favor, 123-62, both teams were ready to get in the pool and race another squad.

“They’re always get excited for this meet,” Brownsburg coach Josh Saylor said. “It breaks the first four weeks of the season up. Usually this meet sets the tone for the rest of the season in terms of their enthusiasm, team spirit and togetherness. We learned last year that counts for a lot.”

Tri-West coach Jeff Sankey agreed with his counterpart and said it was a good learning experience for his young squad.

“This was a rough one for us since we have so many freshmen and sophomores,” Sankey said. “It really was like a breaking in process as we went through the meet tonight. There were some bumps along the way, but overall, I thought we did really well.”

Brownsburg won all but two of the 12 events, sweeping all three relays along the way. The Bulldogs also had two double individual champions on the day.

Grace Fulwider won both the 50 and 500 free events while Madison Kehr took home victories in the 100 free and 100 breast.

Fulwider also swam on the winning 400 free relay team and Kehr participated on the winning 200 medley relay squad.

“Madison struggled through shoulder injuries all last year and she’s like a brand new swimmer and she went 56 (seconds) in the 100 free and that was her best time last year,” Saylor said. “To do that at the first meet of the year is very exciting.” Brownsburg also had several swimmers win an individual event and relay event.

Kierra Watson won the 200 free and was a member of the winning 200 free relay. Tia Scoggan won the 200 IM and was a member of both the 400 free and 200 medley relays. AJ Moll won the 100 back while participating on the winning 400 free relay team.
