GHS girls' swim team opens season with win

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Opening their season with a win, the Greencastle High School girls swim team defeated North Montgomery 97-88 at the Chargers' pool.

"I was really happy with the way our girls swam tonight," coach Luke Beasley said. "I saw great effort from all our team. We were down at the halfway point after diving by three points, but they didn't give up."

Greencastle had several first place finishes.

Junior Erika Collins had four top places in the 200-yard freestyle, 100-yard freestyle, and the 200 and 400 freestyle relays.

Senior Erica Soster won the 50-yard freestyle, placed second in the 100-yard freestyle, and placed first in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

In the 100 yard butterfly, Melissa Ball won the event, while second place went to Natasha Aring.

"That was a big event for us," Beasley said of the butterfly.

Also, Morgan Terry won the 500-yard freestyle.

Members of the top-placing 200-yard relay team were Sarah Dory, Collins, Ball and Soster.

The 400-yard relay team was Collins, Terry, Dory and Dana Norman.

In the diving competition, coached by Mike Bostick, Greencastle had Sarah Land in second, Lainey Poor in third, and Jasmine Like in fourth.

Greencastle's next meet is at home at 6:30 p.m. Thursday against Crawfordsville High School.

"That is one of the biggest meets of the year for us. Crawfordsville is our perennial rival," Beasley said.

He encouraged the public to attend to support the GHS swimmers.
