The Jasper Aquatic Wildcats were well represented at the Long Course Age Group State Championships over the weekend. Vincent Bez, Nicole Fant, Lillian Polley, Mason Thornburgh and Grant Wehr all swam for JAWS.
The Jasper girls swimming season came to and end on Friday evening at the IHSAA State Finals at the IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis while the Wildcats boys basketball team remained perfect in Big Eight conference play.
For the Jasper girls swimming team, the high school natatorium has been their second home for as long as they can remember — for a majority of the team, that means even dating back to their pre-high school days.
For the 12 girls swim teams that assembled at Jasper High School on Saturday, everything the swimmers had worked towards throughout the season was another step in the buildup to the sectional showdown. And in the end, the host Jasper Wildcats, who scored 462 overall points, emerged as this season’s sectional title.
