PREP BOYS SWIMMING: Raiders battle to eighth-place state finish

INDIANAPOLIS — If you would have told Northridge coach Joe Keller at the beginning of the season he had a Top Ten team in the state he might not have believed you.

The reality panned out Saturday as the Raiders totaled 107 points to finish in eighth place in the team standings at the 77th annual IHSAA boys state swimming and diving championships at the Indiana University Natatorium on the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis.

“We are definitely happy with a Top Ten finish,” Keller said. “We messed up in the 200 freestyle relay on Friday night. We didn’t get the job done and that cost us a Top Five placing.

“We brought a lot of youngsters down here and they gained some valuable experience. Our young guys handled this meet really well. This is not the easiest meet to compete in.”

Chesterton totaled 240 points to repeat as state champion. Avon was second at 198, followed by Penn 187, Columbus North 133, Carmel 124, Bloomington South 115, Hamilton Southeastern 109, Northridge 107, Zionsville 105 and Carroll (Fort Wayne) 84 to round out the Top Ten.

Elkhart Central finished in a tie for 43rd with Highland at four points.

Senior Jon Stoller had a great day for Northridge placing third in the 200-yard individual medley (1:49.60) and fourth in 100 breaststroke (55.96).

“Jon had a goal of going under 1:50 in the 200 IM and he did that,” Keller said. “I think he is only about the eighth or ninth high school kid to do that. He also eclipsed the Junior National standard. That is his first Junior National standard.”

Stoller was in sixth place about halfway through the 100 breast.

“He rallied and then had to turn right around and anchor the 400 free relay,” Keller said.

About his rally Stoller said, “I was just thinking about getting under 56 seconds, finishing fourth was just the icing.

“It kind of depends on the situation whether I concentrate on time or placing. It helps me focus on getting better.”
