Batesville swimmers make pair of trips to Shelbyville

— The Batesville High School girls swim team defeated Shelbyville by a score of 104-71.

The Lady Bulldogs had six individual event winners and placed first in two relays.

Winning for Batesville were Andi Cox (50 free), Nicole Hountz (100 backstroke), Clare Parker (100 butterfly), Elizabeth Weiler (100 breaststroke) and Emily Weiler (200 IM and 100 free).

“She (Emily Weiler) is just plain tough,” BHS head coach TJ Greene commented. “She works hard in practice and it prepares her for races like she had tonight.”

Hountz, Elizabeth Weiler, Cox and Sarah Espin won the medley relay, while Cox Hountz and the two Weilers teamed up to claim victory in the 400 free relay.

Junior Varsity event winners were Sophie Voegele (50 free) and Lexi Hatcher (100 free).

Many Lady Bulldogs had their best times of their careers including Teresa DeRosa (50 back), Espin (100 back), Hatcher (100 free), Holly Keck (50 free), Lydia Olsen (50 free), Emily Rose (100 free), Elizabeth Weiler (200 free), and Emily Weiler (200 IM).

The BHS boys were 11 points behind the host Golden Bears.

“The guys really had a great second half of the meet,” Greene commented. “The meet was not decided until the final event ... They hung in there.”

Bryce Timonera set a new school record in the 200 freestyle and placed first. The BHS senior also won the 200 yard freestyle.

Thomas Hatcher and Matt Weiler were also double winners. Hatcher placed first in the 50 free and 100 breaststroke. Weiler touched first in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke.

All three swimmers – Timonera, Weiler and Hatcher – set school records for points scored in a dual meet.  “We can interchange these guys in all eight events, which gives us opportunities to try lots of different events with many swimmers,” Greene noted. “It is a nice luxury to have.”

Weiler, Hatcher, Timonera and Graham Hunter teamed up to win both the medley and 200 free relay events.

Junior Varsity event winners were Elliot Prickel (50 and 100 freestyle), Harsh Patel (100 backstroke) and Isaac Frank (100 breaststroke).  

Crosby Bingaman (100 free), Grant Greene (100 free), Nathan Hall (100 free), Hatcher (100 breast), Hawkins (100 back), Chris Lambert (200 IM), Evan Miller (100 free), Diego Osante (100 free), Patel (100 free), Prickel (50 free, 100 free), Ben Schwettman (50 free), Timonera (200 free) and Weiler (50 back, 100 fly) all swam career best times, according to Greene.
