Meet Recap

The Bearcat men showed sparks of excellence Saturday while competing at the Warsaw Invitational. The Bearcats finished 4th in a meet highlighted by some great competition from foes who will most likely be competing in February at the state championships.

The Bearcats were lead by two winning swims, Lukas Bradford (100 fly) and Alec Hale (200 free). Both of these athletes competed in these events at last years’ state meet and looked dominate in them again to start of this season. Alec outdistanced the field in the 200 by 3 seconds while Lukas leapfrogged the top seed to win the 100 fly going a season best 55 seconds. Both swimmers also pitched in with top 3 swims in their other individual event as well.

They rest of the Bearcats didn’t disappoint either. Brock McCoy continued his season improvement going under the 6:00 mark in the 500 free and eclipsing 1:10 in the 100 back. Vincent Rogers and Zane Brown both went into the 100 breaststroke to drop time, and both finished the race 2 seconds ahead of where they have been all season. Carter Tharp, Eliyahu Young, and Bryce McAbee all continued to look good in the water swimming right at their season best times in their events, but looking very smooth in doing so. The boys will really have a fight in 2 weeks when they travel to Zionsville to take on more top level competition in the Zionsville Invitational.

The Bearcats are now 2-1 on the season and will be back in dual meet action on Tuesday, December 6th @ New Castle.
