BHS swim teams win at Lawrenceburg

The Batesville High School boys swim team easily won a tri-meet at Lawrenceburg. They finished the night with 166 points followed by Lawrenceburg (66) and South Dearborn (59).

Seth Parker swam into the BHS record books by winning all four of his events at the meet.

“Seth is an integral part of our team,” BHS coach TJ Greene commented. “Because his events are all just before or after individual events, he often sacrifices personal glory that he would get in relays if I would just put him in them.”

Parker won the 200 yard freestyle, 100 backstroke and was a member of the winning of the 200 and 400 yard freestyle winning relays.

Three other swimmers also won all four of their events. Thomas Hatcher (50 free, 100 fly), Jacob Hawkins (200 IM, 500 free) and Matt Weiler (100 free, 100 breast) were all quadruple winners.

Weiler swam the second fastest 100 breaststroke in school history with a time of 1:02.19 “He missed the record that was broken by Hatcher at the EIAC Championships by just .01,” Greene commented. “It’s going to be an interesting final few meets to see who ends up with that record.”

Weiler also is just the second swimmer in school history to ever swim under 50 seconds in the 100 free. He won the event in 49.67.

Graham Hunter (100 free), Clayton McKinley (500 free), Harsh Patel (200 free), and Damion Pelo (100 breast) and Ben Schwettman (100 back) were each second in their respective events.

Swimming to third place honors were Hunter (50 free), Kegan Main (100 fly), and Pelo (200 IM).

Junior varsity event winners were McKinley (50 free) and Evan Miller (100 fly, 100 breast).

The wins pushed Batesville’s record to 13-4 (9-3 in EIAC).

Lady Bulldogs win two more in pool

The Batesville Lady Bulldogs improved to 15-5 (9-4 in EIAC) with impressive wins over Lawrenceburg and South Dearborn in a tri-meet hosted by Lawrenceburg.

Batesville won 8 of 11 events, including all three relays. Batesville scored a meet high 144 points. South Dearborn was second with 92 points followed by Lawrenceburg with 85 points.
