The Manchester swim teams took on Huntington Tuesday.
The Squires swam well in front of a packed house as we celebrated Senior Night against Huntington North. Senior Jonathan Eberly and junior Liam York led the way winning four events each. Eberly picked up individual wins in the 200 IM and 100 butterfly while York finished first in the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. They joined Raice Martin and Caden Marcum to win the 200 Medley relay and Eberly, Marcum, York, and Cale Bennett won the 400 freestyle relay. Marcum swam a season best time in the 100 freestyle to take second, while Cale Bennett swam a great 500 freestyle to finish a close second. Prior to tonight’s meet we recognized seniors Jonathan Eberly and Raice Martin. Their hard work, leadership, and positive example will leave a lasting legacy for all future Squire swimmers.
Despite several great performances, the Squires fell to Huntington North on senior night in North Manchester. Josie Briner led the way with victories in the 200 IM and 100 butterfly and Hannah Eberly took first in the 100 breaststroke. Eberly also picked up 2nd place in the 100 freestyle with a season best time. Evyn Fox and senior Kaesyn Lester finished 2nd and 3rd in the 500 freestyle in season best times. Prior to the meet, Kaesyn Lester was recognized along with our three foreign exchange students, Nele Bichler, Robin Gibin, and Julie Moren. They have been a great example for our younger swimmers and have laid a solid foundation for the future growth of Squire swimming. The Squires will spend the next two weeks in heavy training and emerge to host Wabash on January 5th.
