Avon swim teams sweep Westfield

AVON — Avon’s boys’ and girls’ swim teams wrapped up their varsity schedules Thursday night against visiting Westfield while honoring a large group of seniors.

Avon coach Jon Karr’s squads dispatched the visiting Shamrocks as the No. 3-ranked boys took a 127-58 victory and the girls won 108-75.

Sixteen seniors — nine boys and seven girls — took their last regular season laps and were honored at the meet.

“We had some some swims that were season and lifetime bests,” Karr said. “Tonight was about the seniors and sending them out in style. It was fun throwing our emotions behind that group. Our senior class has been awesome for this program.”

The boys’ team won 9 of 12 events, including a clean sweep of the relays.

Avon’s 200 medley relay team of Chandler Bray, Christian Lorenz, Greg Sprout, and Grant Lewis took first. The 200 free relay squad of Parks Jones, Michael Goldhammer, Greg Sprout and Bray were victorious as was the 400 free relay team of Grant Sprout, Greg Sprout, Lewis and Jones.

Jones also won the 500 free and 200 free. Rounding out the other wins for Avon included Lorenz (100 breast), Greg Sprout (100 free), Grant Lewis (200 IM), and Aaron Davis (diving).

Avon’s girls won 8 of 12 events, including 2 of 3 relays.

The 200 medley relay squad of Ana Walters, Natalie Myers, Emily Smith and Lauren Campbell won as did the 200 free relay team of Campbell, Katie Qualls, Carli Hines, and Amelia Scanland.

Campbell also took first in the 50 free and 100 free. Myers (200 free), Qualls (500 free), Kimmi Howell (diving), and Colleen Fay (100 fly) were Avon’s other individual winners.

Avon’s boys and No. 16-ranked girls now turn the page and look toward the postseason with great anticipation. The Orioles hold several top five performances in Indiana and look to make some noise at the state championship and the girls should also have some state place winners.
