“Holy cow, Victoria is a sprinter no doubt,” Cavanaugh said. “She’s just learning how good she could possibly be after getting a taste of it this weekend. That hopefully will make her a little bit hungry as she is a good swimmer for sure.”
The teams split the diving events with Plainfield’s Courtney Coverdale and Brownsburg’s Grason Horvath each taking home first-place finishes.
The two schools split events again in the 100 fly as Watson and Tice took wins for the Bulldogs and Quakers, respectively.
Brownsburg swept the 100 free as Fulwider won the girls’ event and Green took the boys.
Adair won the 500 free for Plainfield while Ancel took home the win for the Bulldogs’ boys. The victory was Adair’s second on the night.
“Mallory was coming on the beginning of the season,” Cavanaugh said. “Now she is learning that not every meet will be a lifetime best. She is learning how to be really tired and swim, which is good for her. I know she tapers really, really well. When we start to rest here in a little bit we expect her to be pretty fast. She is a hard worker and a great kid and we are very, very fortunate to have her.”
The Quakers took home first-place finishes in the 200 freestyle relays as the girls’ squad of Lena Charles, VanDeVoorde, Adair and Emily Hunter cruised in with a time of 1:49.01 and the boys’ squad of Allen, Dakota Rhodes, Tice and Daniel Mongell finished in 1:34.35, narrowly edging the Bulldogs.
With the meet winding down, Brownsburg and Plainfield split in the 100 backstroke with the Bulldogs’ Scoggan and Quakers’ Allen taking firsts.
Brownsburg would sweep the 100 breast as Fulwider collected her second individual first of the evening and Hunter Dahlke won on the boys’ side.
