Boys meet

Northridge 136, Goshen 49

MIDDLEBURY — It was a night of personal bests for the more seasoned Northridge Raiders in an NLC meet with the youthful Goshen Redskins. Northridge ended up with a 136-49 victory Tuesday night at Northridge.

“It’s hard to single anyone out, because we had a lot of personal bests,” Northridge coach Joe Keller said.

“In a meet like this we are able to move guys around into events they normally don’t swim. That is good for the kids since it helps mix things up.”

The powerful Raiders won every event with the exception of the 100-yard freestyle that was taken by Goshen senior Adam Bratten (50.60).

“I told the guys coming into the meet this was an opportunity to swim with competition,” Goshen coach Nate Duell said.

“That is the way you get better and for the most part we did that tonight. One of our sayings for the meet was ‘Embrace the race.’

“We have kids with a lot of heart and desire on the team. Bratten got out of the pool after one of his events and I though he was having an asthma attack. He said ‘no, he had not been feeling well for the last couple of days.’ But he never said anything until then.”

Senior Austin Flager finished first in the 100 butterfly (51.57) and 100 breaststroke (1:04.83), classmate AJ Bernth captured the 200 free (1:50.89) and 100 backstroke (56.83)  and junior Jonathan Stoller took the 50 free (22.67) and 500 free (4:55.89) to lead the Raiders.

“The boys team is similar to the girls in the fact that we have a lot of experience and leadership among the seniors,” Keller said. “Where the difference is between the teams is the younger kids on the boys team are experienced.”

There are six freshmen — Alex Bernth, Jeremy Burbrink, Seth Cripe, Jesse Drake, Logan Elijah and Conner Sandt — on the varsity roster.

“The six of them were all at the age group state meet this summer,” Keller said.

“They have enough experience by this point of the season I consider then veterans. They have raced enough to allow them to make the adjustment to high school swimming.”

When you consider freshmen veterans it speaks well of the future of our program.”

All of the youngsters contributed to the victory with Cripe leading the way with his win in the 200 individual medley (2:07.80).

Keller likes the attitude of the team.

“This group won the Indiana Swimming Spirit Award,” the coach said.

“It’s a fun group to be around. They show up everyday ready to work hard in practice. It’s a group that just loves being around the pool.”

Northridge (6-1, 4-0 NLC) hosts NorthWood next Tuesday and Goshen (1-6, 1-3) travels to Elkhart Central Thursday.
