Weiler 15th at state finals

Batesville High School senior Matt Weiler made his second trip to the IHSAA State Finals in swimming on Friday.

As a result of a 13th place finish in the 50 yard freestyle (21.59) during the Friday night prelims, Weiler made a return trip to the Indiana University Natatorium on Saturday.

The BHS swimmer was the lone representative from the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference to make it to the second day.

Weiler was 15th overall with a time of 21.65.

“This was a very fast state finals,” BHS coach TJ Greene commented. “The times were faster than the past several years, which makes it all the more impressive that Matt made the top 16 in the 50 yard freestyle.

“Matt was at a tremendous disadvantage compared to all other swimmers who made it to the second day of the state finals. The fact that he was able to finish 15th in the entire state is a testament to Matt’s work ethic, our program and the family and friends that supported Matt during his run to the state finals,” he added.

Weiler finished his BHS career second on the all-time scoring list with 1,205 points, which is not far behind 2013 graduate Bryce Timonera.

“To me, state was a goal well attained and a perfect way to end my high school swimming career,” Weiler commented. “But my success was not about how well I did at an elite level, that’s just icing on the cake.

“The people and meaningful friendships I gained through these opportunities and experiences will always be the most meaningful reward to me.”, he added.

Weiler is only the third BHS swimmer to make it to the state finals. Timonera (2010-13) and Jason Flodder (2003) made it to the state finals ahead of him.
