PREP SWIMMING: Redskins sweep

Goshen boys, girls take NLC meets at NorthWood

NAPPANEE — Coach Nate Duell and his Goshen High School girls and boys swimming teams are glad this stretch of their schedule is over.

The Redskins competed in their 10th meet over the past 23 days Thursday night at NorthWood. Goshen won the NLC girls meet by a score of 124-54 and the boys 121-64.

“All of the kids are tired and I think it showed tonight in some of our times,” the coach said. “NorthWood is down this year due to illness and injuries. Tonight gave us the chance to swim some different kids in events and to create some races. Any time you can race it is going to help you. I have always told the kids you can take something from away from every meet.”

NorthWood coach Brooke Casteel said, “About one-fourth of our team is out either due to illness or injury. There has been something going through the team for a couple of weeks.

“What we have been looking to do is improve our times during this stretch. Once we get everybody back and healthy we have the chance to be a better team.”

The Goshen girls (9-2, 4-2 NLC) and boys (3-7, 3-3) are idle until traveling to Mishawaka on Thursday, Jan. 3.

The Goshen boys did find an iron man in Tyler James. He competed in the final four events of the meet, swimming the anchor leg of the 200-yard freestyle relay, the 100 backstroke, the 100 breaststroke and then swimming the first leg of the 400 free relay.

“That is something we don’t do very often,” Duell said. “It was Tyler’s idea. He wanted to do it. He is a very fit kid and we had the right matchups to try it. I told him to go ahead. It was a way for us to see how tough he is.”

The move was successful as James created a great race in the 200 free relay. The Redskin foursome of Ian Duell, Kyle Butler, Grant Simpson and Daniel Swihart were first in 1:50.33 with James’ team tying a NorthWood group for second at 1:50.53. Adam Bratten, Charlie Ostergren and Bryan Reyes were the rest of the Goshen relay. Swimming for NorthWood were Riley Smith, Jake Snider, Connor Yoder and Nate Nunemaker.

“Look how close it was to a three-way tie,” Duell said.

James then finished first in the 100 back (1:14.67) and 100 breast (1:12.68) before leading the Redskins to a win in the 400 free relay (4:06.76) with Jacob Lietzan, Ian Duell and Noah Shreiner.

Nunemaker was one of her swimmers Casteel praised. He placed second in the 500 free (6:02.59).

“He took another seven seconds off his best time,” she said. “That is 20 seconds this week. He finished the race well.”

Jamie McBride was a double winner for the NorthWood girls, taking the 200 free (2:18.40) and 100 breast (1:23.54).

“She was another one that finished off their races,” Casteel said.

Melissa Berger of NorthWood won diving (247.70 points).

“She has such good control of her body. She knows where every part is,” NW diving coach and her father Doug Berger said.

“She gets a lot of height off the springboard. She has a lot of focus. That is something she learns from gymnastics.”

Among the winners for the Goshen girls Duell highlighted were Esther King (100 free in 1:10.90) and Molly Metcalfe (500 free in 6:48.34).

“Both of them had their best times,” the coach said. “That was nice to see. They are the girls that show up everyday for practice, but they are not the ones that get the notoriety.”
