Orioles fly past 'Dogs

AVON — The Avon Orioles boys’ and girls’ swim teams were both dominated on Tuesday night, as both squads defeated Hoosier Crossroads Conference and county rival Brownsburg. The Avon boys won 124–62 and the girls prevailed 128–57.

Girls

Sophomore Ana Walters and junior Lauren Campbell led the Orioles, both winning two events and were a part of the same winning relay teams. Walters won the 200 IM and 100 backstroke, while Campbell won both the 50 and 100 freestyle events. They both helped their relay teams win two more events on the night (200 medley and 400 freestyle relays).

Avon freshman Hallie Jones won the 200 freestyle and was a part of two winning relay teams (200 and 400 freestyle). Senior Elizabeth Kitching, won the 500 free and was a part of the same two winning relay teams as Jones.

Orioles senior Liz Wishart won the 100 breaststroke and was also a part of two winning relay teams (200 medley and 200 free).

Other winners for Avon were senior Melissa Moore (1-meter diving with a score of 195.80) and senior Maddie Ketchem (100 fly).

Despite the strong showing from the Orioles, Brownsburg coach Joshua Saylor was encouraged with his team’s effort.

“We are young, only four or five seniors, but they have vastly improved from last season,” he said. “We have greater depth and experience this year, and I was pleased with the way they swam tonight.”

On the other side of the deck, Avon coach Jon Karr was very pleased with some of his other swimmers stepping up tonight.

“We have a good solid group of girls, some of our two’s and three’s had some great swims tonight. Especially pleased with Maddie Lodics and Kelsie Mothersead, they just keep improving every time they jump in the pool,” he said. “We are really doing well, we’re improving and it has been fun to watch.”
