Giants fall to Warriors

The Ben Davis boys’ and girls’ swimming teams have been battling some illnesses the entire month of December and it carried over Tuesday evening as both the girls and boys squads lost to Warren Central.

More than eight of Ben Davis’ swimmers were out due to an illness or injury. Luckily, with the winter break coming up the Giants will not have another meet until January.

“We’re working through it,” Ben Davis coach George Fastrich said. “Unfortunately, once you get sick, they keep passing it around through each other, and it’s like a never-ending process.”

Against Warren Central, the boys lost 116-67 and the girls fell 102-79.

Of course, with so many athletes on the sidelines others had to step up and even swim certain events for the first time. Fastrich was impressed and praised his swimmers for performing under the given circumstances.

“We went into the meet coming out of county and just set them up in events that try to get some times on some of these kids on events we don’t have times on yet,” Fastrich said. “With our newer swimmers we’re starting to see a lot more progress, and the challenges that we’re starting to throw at them at meets, they’re really taking it on and doing the best they can.”

The girls won five events including the diving portion, which Maddie Cook won with a score of 152.25. Katie McKain won in the 50 free (27.47), the 500 free (6:09.78) and helped the 200 and 400 free relay teams to victory.

The 200-relay team of McKain, Morgan Stovall, Alis Marrero and Maddie Holmes had a time of 1:55.80. The 400-relay team of McKain, Stovall, Holmes and Kimmy Gramer swam a 4:20.61.

The boys also found winners on the relay races. Cole Crouch, Jess Partin, Caelan Priddy and Darrin Frazier swam a 1:35.42 in the 200 and a 3:35.22 in the 400 free relays for victories in each.
