Trojans fall to Indians in swimming

By JASON KUBICK of NCHS and C-T Staff Report

The New Castle High School girls and boys swimming teams hosted Anderson Tuesday evening in the pool at New Castle Middle School. The two Trojan teams are improving, but still fell to the visiting Indians.

Anderson defeated New Castle 113-30 on the girls side of the meet, while the Indian boys defeated the Trojans 140-39.

On the girls end, New Castle was led by Keldyn Young with a personal-best time and second-place finish in the 100 Backstroke and third place in the 50 Freestyle. Bailey Smith also had a second-place finish in the 100 Breaststroke.

Lucille Vermeiren swam new events for the Trojans Tuesday night and had really good swims, including a third-place finish in the 100 Breaststroke. Sarah Lucas also had a personal-best time in the 100 Backstroke.

The New Castle 200 Medley and Freestyle Relay teams featuring all four girls both placed second on the evening.

The Trojan boy swimmers had some really good swims against a deep and talented Anderson team.

Luke Atterson led the way with a couple of second-place finishes in the 200 Freestyle and 100 Breaststroke, and both of those finishes were best times for him. Ben Hall also had a pair of second-place finishes in the 500 Free and 100 Backstroke, both of which were personal best times.

Jacob Boyce placed third in the 100 Fly, Connor Griffey placed third in the 100 Backstroke and had a personal-best time in the 100 Free. Jackson Criswell had a personal- best time with a third-place finish in the 50 Free. Andrew Lacey also had a personal-best time in the 200 Free.

The 200 Freestyle Relay team of Atterson, Jacob Lucas, Griffey, and Criswell placed third, and the 400 Free Relay team of Atterson, Boyce, Criswell, and Hall also placed third.

Both the New Castle girls and boys swimming teams will compete in Saturday’s Hoosier Heritage Conference meet at New Palestine High School’s Natatorium, which also is the site of the sectional meets in February.

“I’m really happy with our times and how well we swam,” New Castle Coach Jason Kubick stated. “We are improving as the season moves along, and I’m looking forward to what we do Saturday at conference.”
