Warrior girls take second at Sagamore

The Danville girls’ swim team placed second in Saturday’s Sagamore Conference meet at Crawfordsville, finishing 107 points behind first-place Lebanon, while the Warrior boys finished fifth.

“Overall, I have zero complaints about how this meet went,” Danville coach Leah Miller said. “The girls came down to maybe one relay and then having just one fewer swimmer in A-finals.”

Both the Tri-West girls and boys teams came in sixth.

“We had a lot of lifetime-best swims, in the relays and individual events,” Tri-West coach Jeff Sankey said. “The final results really didn’t match up with how well we did.”

Danville’s girls started the day with a victory by Sydney Kroll, Isabelle Mitchell, Carly Kroll, Sydney Elliot in the 200 medley relay.

“They came out and made a statement right away,” Miller said.

Also for Danville, Elliot won a great race in the 50 freestyle by .05 seconds, Mitchell took the 100 breaststroke and Kelsey Hedrick easily won the diving competition. Sydney Kroll had second-places in the 100 backstroke and 500 free, as did Elliot in 100 butterfly.

Tri-West’s Madison Jones was named female swimmer of the meet for the second year in a row, after winning the 200 freestyle by nearly six seconds and the 100 butterfly by almost four ticks.

It was another banner day for the Bruins junior, who owns all but three of the individual school records and has a piece of each relay best.

“She’s a great kid, a really good athlete that’s humble, friendly and so easy to coach,” Sankey said. “She’s a tremendous asset to the team for what she does in the pool and how she helps coach the girls.”

Coming in as a middle-seed, Danville’s Matt Neilson won the 200 freestyle. He also placed second in the 500 free.
