Timonera, Weiler and Cox lead BHS swimmers at EIAC meet


Andi Cox named EIAC MVP for third consecutive year

The Lady Bulldogs finished fourth at the annual EIAC swimming championships and were led by reigning conference MVP Andi Cox.

By the end of the meet, Cox captured her third consecutive conference MVP honors - something accomplished by just 11 females in the history of EIAC swimming.

“Andi is one of the strongest swimmers I have ever coached,” Greene praised. “She is mentally tough and is calm under pressure.”

Cox won the 100 yard butterfly and 100 yard backstroke events.  She shared MVP honors with Taylor Baresel (SD) and Molly Osterling (GHS) who each won both of their events as well.

“Some may wonder how close Cox was to a fourth MVP crown. ... Andi came to Batesville her sophomore year,” Greene noted. “If we had her all four years, she’d have four MVPs.  She is so talented.”

The team title went to South Dearborn with 80 points. Greensburg was second with 77 points followed by East Central (68), Batesville (57) and Lawrenceburg (42).

The 200 yard medley relay of Emily Weiler, Gwendolyn Frank, Clare Parker and Audrey Hall finished fifth.

Nicole Hountz was fourth in the 200 and 500 yard freestyle events.  “Nicole gives up a lot of personal glory to get us points in the distance events,Greene commented. “She has been a model of consistency for our program and a great role model for our younger swimmers.”

Emily Weiler was sixth in the 200 free and fifth in the 100 backstroke.  Elizabeth Weiler was the lone individual runner-up for the Lady Bulldogs, finishing second in the 200 yard individual medley and third in the 100 yard breaststroke.  Hall was sixth in the 50 yard freestyle as was Parker in the 100 yard butterfly.  Sarah Espin was sixth in the 100 yard freestyle.

The  200 yard freestyle relay of Cox, Elizabeth Weiler, Espin and Hountz finished second and the 400 yard freestyle relay of Hountz, Emily Weiler, Elizabeth Weiler and Cox finished third.

“The girls’ competition is much improved over the past few years,” Greene said. “I am proud of how the girls swam today.  

“They left it all in the pool for Batesville High School,” he added.

The Lady Bulldogs are now 20-10 on the season.
