He did it again

He did it again.

Andrew Bretscher, a swimmer on the Greencastle High School boys' swim team, broke the100-yard backstroke record Monday in the Tiger Sharks', 132-51, victory over South Vermillion.

Bretscher record time of 55.08 earned him the first-place ribbon in the 100 backstroke and another spot on the wall of records.

Bretscher might have stole the show for a short while with his record, but he wasn't the only Tiger Shark to walk away with a blue ribbon. If it wasn't for a Wildcat victory in the 100-yard freestyle, the Tiger Sharks would have swept the meet.

The relay team of Anthony Paul, Gus Chiarella, Gus Lidaka and Luke Crimmins got the water churning for Greenastle, winning the 200-yard medley relay in 1:58.84 while Mark Jedele followed behind them with a 2:01.89 finish in the 200-yard freestyle for blue ribbon.

Jonathan Barber showed the Wildcats in the 200-yard IM that Greencastle was there to win, winning with a time of 2:18.94. He finished more than nine seconds ahead of his Wildcats opponent.

Bretscher started his record night in the 50-yard freestyle, winning the event in 22.69 for his first blue ribbon of the evening.

Patrick Rud and the Tiger Shark divers stepped up next after Bretscher to do what they do best -- win. Rud won the event with a score of 230.30, staying consistent with his scores from earlier in the season while Paul Anthony scored 162.15 points for second place and Ben Fisher finished third with 151.65points.

The Tiger Sharks won the next event, the 100-yard butterfly, with Misha Serlin finishing in 1:22.25, which was his best time so far this season. Greencastle lost the next event, but Miles Salman finished second with a time of 58.28, marking the first time that he has finished the race under on minute and earned himself the Shark of the Meet honor. Chiarella also finished under a minute with a time of 59.68, earning him third place in the race.

From that point on it was Greencastle all the way. Austin Woodall dominated the 500-yard freestyle event with a time of 6:14.44, finishing nearly 42 seconds ahead of his South Vermillion opponent.

The other Shark of the Meet honors went to Serlin for anchoring the 200-yard freestyle relay team in what was a come-from-behind victory according to GHS Coach Paul Bretscher. Serlin swam a 23.84 split in the race to give the Tiger Sharks a time of 1:43.29 for the first-place finish.

Dustin Wood won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:10.09 and the 400-yard relay team o Chris Kraig, Crimmens, William Dory and Bretscher finished things up for the Tiger Sharks with a first-place finish with a time of 3:46.54

Greencastle is back in action on Thursday when they travel to North Putnam to take on the Cougars in a 6 p.m. meet.
