Tiger Sharks split with Danville, NM
The Tiger Shark men raced hard to earn the split on Monday night, defeating North Montgomery but losing to Danville.
“Following conference, they were swimming an entirely different lineup, but they performed very well and almost all hit top times,” Greencastle coach Kent Menzel said. “Our sprint crew really delivered, with Preston Headley and Jack Romer going 1-2 in the 50 free and Jack Riggle and Romer taking the top two places in the 100 free.”
Headley, Romer, and Riggle (along with Sal Martoglio) also raced to the win in both the freestyle relays.
“The team and the coaches are all looking forward to the sectional meet in four weeks,” Menzel said.

• DePauw 64, Ohio Wesleyan 31 (women) — The No. 9-ranked Tigers built a 14-point first-quarter lead against visiting Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday and gradually extended it before finishing with a 64-31 North Coast Athletic Conference win over the Battling Bishops in women’s action.
The Tigers improved to 17-1 overall and 9-0 in the NCAC with their 13th straight win, while Ohio Wesleyan slipped to 1-17 overall and 0-9 in NCAC play.
The Tigers scored on their first three possessions of the game as Sydney Kopp buried a pair of 3-pointers in the opening minute and Melinda Franke followed with a layup. DePauw held Ohio Wesleyan without a field goal over the final five minutes of the stanza and finished the period on an 8-0 run to take a 22-8 lead into the second.
Howard led all scorers with 18 points, while Claire Keefe and Kopp each scored 12. Kopp just missed a second straight double-double with nine rebounds and Howard had three assists.
DePauw shot 36.7 percent from the field, but buried 16 of 17 free throws. Ohio Wesleyan connected on just 23.1 percent of its field goal tries and was 5 of 10 from the charity stripe.
The Tigers outrebounded Ohio Wesleyan, 43-33 and committed just eight turnovers.
DePauw hosts Wittenberg tonight 7:30 p.m.
• Ohio Wesleyan 77, DePauw 72 (men) — DePauw trailed by as many as 17, but David Vogel’s 3-pointer to tie the game with five seconds remaining didn’t drop, and the Tigers took a North Coast Athletic Conference loss on Saturday.
DePauw has now lost its past two contests by a combined eight points to drop to 7-10 overall and 3-7 in the NCAC.
Jack VandeMerkt tied a career-high with 24 points and led the game with eight rebounds. Nick Felke posted a career-high with 13 points.
Riley Doody finished with seven points and a career-high seven assists, while Nolan Ginther scored three and posted career bests with seven rebounds and three assists.
Yet, that combination could not overtake the senior duo of Seth Clark and Nate Axelrod who scored 28 and 22 points respectively. Axelrod was an assist away from a double-double, and Clark had six defensive rebounds.
Will Orr also reached double figures with 12.
DePauw will travel to Wittenberg today.
