Timonera, Weiler and Cox lead BHS swimmers at EIAC meet

Bulldogs capture seven EIAC Titles

Timonera and Weiler capture conference MVP honors

Bryce Timonera became just the third swimmer in Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference history to capture four MVP titles (Eckstein, EC 00-03 and House, EC 04-07).

Teammate Matt Weiler earned Co-MVP honors with Timonera and Ryan Lammering of East Central.

“Bryce’s feat is really amazing,” BHS head coach TJ Greene commented. “Swimming has been contested in the EIAC since at least 1988.  During that time 132 different swimmers have been named All-EIAC with 58 of those swimmers being named EIAC MVP at least one time.

“Bryce is just the third swimmer ever to capture MVP all four years.  It is incredibly difficult to do.”

Timonera won both the 100 yard butterfly and 100 yard backstroke events.

For the second consecutive year, the Bulldogs had a swimmer share Co-MVP honors as Matt Weiler took the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke events.

“Matt could have won at least six of the events contested on Saturday,” Greene commented. “It is a well-deserved honor for him.”  

Thomas Hatcher became just the 19th swimmer in EIAC history to earn all-EIAC honors in three seasons.  Hatcher won the 100 yard freestyle.

“Hatcher has become one of the most reliable sprinters we’ve ever had at Batesville,” Greene noted.

Two relays produced additional EIAC champions for the Bulldogs.  The medley relay of Timonera, Hatcher, Weiler and Graham Hunter swam to a winning time of 1:42.34.  The times was just .5 off the EIAC record, but was good enough for a new BHS record and the EIAC title.  

The final event of the day was the 400 yard freestyle relay.  Hatcher, Weiler, Chris Lambert and Timonera swam to a season best time of 3:25.07 to capture the final EIAC title.

“It was nice to see Graham and Chris earn All-EIAC,” Greene said. “They have been working hard in practice and their swims today were proof of that.

The 2013 team title went to East Central for the 25th time in the 25 year history of the EIAC meet.  East Central finished with 129 points followed by Batesville (88), Greensburg, (48), Lawrenceburg (29) and South Dearborn (13).

In addition to the event winners, Jacob Hawkins was fifth in the 200 freestyle followed by teammate Evan Miller in sixth position.  Lambert was fifth in the 200 individual medley as was Clayton McKinley in the 50 freestyle. Hunter was sixth in the 50 freestyle and Hatcher was the EIAC runner-up.    Joey Hutchison was fourth in the 100 yard butterfly.  Hunter was fourth in the 100 yard freestyle, Hawkins was sixth in the 500 yard freestyle and Seth Parker was fourth in the 100 yard backstroke.  Lambert finished up the individual scoring by finishing fifth in the 100 yard breaststroke.

Batesville is 19-7 on the season.
