Meet Recap

The Lady Bearcats had some quality swims at Warsaw this weekend during the annual Warsaw Invitational. Perennial state power house South Bend Riley won the meet, and followed by Warsaw Community High School and Ft. Wayne Snider, they provided some tough competition for the Bearcats.

The top Individual finishes for the Bearcats were 6th place finishes by Sarah Tinder (200 free), Chloe Townsend (100 free), and Grace Rosenbaum (500 free). The top Bearcat relay was the 200 freestyle relay consisting of Tara Horst, Chloe Townsend, Maggie Connolly, and Sarah Tinder.

Highlights of the day include several season best times from Bearcat swimmers. Sarah Tinder chipped away a second at her 200 freestyle time as did Grace Rosenbaum in her IM. Maggie Connolly swam a time close to what she went at NCC’s last year in the backstroke, and a few lanes over Olivia Phillips also dropped 2 seconds. Jenna O’Donahue lowered her 100 breaststroke time on the season to a 1:25, and Shelby Murphy swam a smooth 100 freestyle tying her lifetime best. It was a solid outing by the Bearcats as they competed in their first invitational meet for the season. The Bearcats look to be even stronger in 2 weeks when the compete against even tougher competition at the Zionsville Invite.

The Lady Bearcats are now 2-3 on the season and will be back in dual meet action on on Tuesday, December 6th @ New Castle.
