PREP SWIMMING: Raiders sweep Redskins

Dominant performances all around for Raiders in NLC meet

MIDDLEBURY — Coach Joe Keller has an interesting mix among the girls on the Northridge High School swimming team. On one hand he has great experience and leadership from the seniors while on the other hand he has some youth that are rather inexperienced.

The veteran coach blended the two elements together and the Raiders posted a 110-75 win over the Goshen Redskins in an NLC meet Tuesday evening at Northridge.

“It was a successful night for the girls,” Keller said. “We we excellent. No, that is still a work in progress. But this team is making strides in the areas we need them to.

“Goshen has a good team and in some ways I was expecting this to be a closer meet. In some areas we expected to be a little more challenged.”

Goshen coach Nate Duell said, “We knew coming in it would take a near perfect evening for us to beat  Northridge. We had some good swims, but this was our seventh meet in 15 days. That is a brutal stretch of our schedule. I was proud of the effort from the girls. A lot of times in a meet like this things can get away from you but that didn’t happen. We were competitive right down to the last race.”

The last event was the 400-meter freestyle relay and Goshen was in first place entering the anchor leg. About halfway through her swim Northridge senior Brittney Walters charged into the lead and one going away. The Northridge foursome of junior Tessa Peter, senior Ashley Owens, sophomore Nikki Willey and Walters were clocked in 3:53.56.

“That is the thing about Brittney,” Keller said.

“I can sit back and watch because with her being in the last swimmer I know what is going to happen. She also gives me the flexibility to move girls around so we can try to win all three relays.”

Walters was in individual double winner taking the 100 butterfly (1:01.66) and 500 free (5:16.80). She also teamed with freshman Sydney Boyer, junior Courtney Clark and Grove for a first in the 200 free relay (1:44.20).

Quite an impressive night for someone who was ill last week.

“She was sick and left school on Friday crying because she was not going to be able to swim on Saturday.” Keller said.

“The talk this year in Notre Dame football was how much Manti Te’o wanted to be with his teammates. Brittney is the Manti Te’o of our team. All she wants to do is compete with her team and be around the other girls.”

Goshen freshman Emma Hussey won the 200 free (2:08.00) and classmate Clarie Palczynski the 100 backstroke (1:06.72).

“Both of them had big wins for us,” Duell said.

Senior Haley Ronci was another swimmer Duell highlighted.

“She is having a good season for us,” the coach said. “I can put her in about her in about any event and she will give me a good effort.”

Redskin junior Emily Yoder finished second (211.45 points) in diving to Northridge junior Jenna Denlinger (212.35).

“That is a personal best for Emily and will probably put her in the top eight or nine divers at Goshen all time on six dives,” Duell said.

Northridge (5-2, 4-0 NLC) hosts NorthWood next Tuesday. Goshen (6-2, 2-2) is at Elkhart Central Thursday.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
