Bulldogs split in pool

BROWNSBURG — Saturday afternoon was Senior Day for the Brownsburg swim teams and the Bulldogs split with Hoosier Crossroads Conference rival Noblesville in what was the girls’ last meet and the boys’ second to last meet of the season.

Brownsburg’s boys won 92-91 in a tight meet over the Millers, who Bulldogs coach Josh Saylor said Brownsburg had not beaten in a dual meet until last season.

“We had a couple of tough beats early in the year… so we wanted to win this one big time and go into the championship season on a high note,” Saylor said. “We knew (Noblesville) would come in fired up and our boys swam well.”

Noblesville outdistanced Brownsburg’s girls by 45 points, 115-70 as Brownsburg won 5 of 12 events.

Brownsburg’s boys took 8 of 12 events en route to its victory and won two relays.

The 200 free relay squad of Joe Ancel, Vince Partlow, Cameron Howard, and Kyle Baney along with the 200 medley relay team of Ancel, Partlow, Brad Green and Diego La Torre both came away victorious.

Individual boys’ winners included Howard (500 free), Ancel (100 breast), Baney (200 free), Partlow (200 IM), La Torre (50 free), and Green (100 fly).

Grace Fulwider led the girls’ side with wins in the 100 breast and 200 IM while teammates Madison Kehr (100 free) and Kierra Watson (100 back) were also victorious. Brownsburg’s 200 medley relay team of Kehr, Fulwider, Watson and Tia Scoggan also won.

“Noblesville is always a strong program and we know that,” Saylor said of the girls’ competition. “Our goal for today was to race as hard as we could against Noblesville in the hopes that it would serve as an example as how tough the field would be at sectionals.”

Brownsburg’s girls host the sectional this season, starting with prelims on Feb. 6 and finals on Feb. 8. It’s been a 23-year drought since the Bulldogs’ last sectional title, something Saylor said the girls hoped to end this season.
