Cadets finish second, fourth at WCC

Cascade went into the West Central Conference swim meet Tuesday night with high hopes on the girls’ side and knew its boys faced an uphill battle.

Unfortunately, it was a disappointing finish for the girls as they took second, and the boys finished fourth behind a Greencastle team that swept the event.

Cascade coach Paul Williams had said it would be close on the girls’ side, maybe even coming down to the last event, and although the Cadets did win the final relay, they were unable to overcome Greencastle’s depth.

“We didn’t win when we needed the battles and my hat is off to (Greencastle). They swam out of their heads tonight,” Williams said.

Cascade’s boys — which includes nine swimmers — were simply too outnumbered to make a run at the WCC title. The Cadets even had two swimmers out sick.

“These guys just did a yeoman’s job,” Williams said. “These guys just swim for each other and not necessarily against an opponent and that’s one of the coolest parts of it.”

Cascade’s girls won an impressive seven of 12 events. The 200 free relay team of Kristi DeWeese, Kaitlyn Breeding, Tori Breeding and Hayley Rosales, along with the 400 free relay of DeWeese, Tori Breeding, Rosales and Alexis Brown, were both victorious. The 400 free relay team set a new school record in a time of 3:57.89.

Both Rosales (200 IM and 100 fly) and Tori Breeding (200 free and 100 free) won two individual WCC titles. Rosales set a school record in the fly with a 1:06.39.

“Hayley put together one of her best IM swims tonight and brought in the butterfly in the last 25 yards,” Williams said. “Tori is just solid gold and if you put her in an event, you can pretty much guarantee she will be on top of the podium.”
