Jasper’s girls swim season ends in IndianapolisFebruary 10, 2018
From Herald Staff Reports
The Jasper girls swimming team saw their season come to an end at the IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis on Friday night.
Both Carmina Armstrong and Lindsey Mehringer swam impressive times but they weren’t quite enough to advance to Saturday’s final round.
Armstrong improved on her 50 freestyle time from sectional witha 24.19 to finish 23rd. She came home 27th in the 100 butterfly.
Lindsey Mehringer finished 30th in the 200 freestyle and 31st in the 100 freestyle.
For the relay teams, the 200 freestyle relay of Armstrong, Mehringer, Kate Weaver and Leah Haas improved on their sectional time by finishing with a time of 1:42.56 for a 28th place finish while the 400 freestyle relay of Armstrong, Weaver, Mehringer and Rhegann Weisheit finished 30th place overall.
Zoe Biggs also competed at the reginoal diving meet earlier in the week and placed 10th overall, falling just short of advancing to the state diving finals.
The Wildcat girls will graduate several seniors including Mehringer, Weaver and Weisheit but will bring back a large returning group which will be anchored by juniors Armstrong and Skorge.
The Jasper girls swim team also had a lot of underclassmen make an immediate impact this season with three freshman leaving their mark on the program almost immediately — Haley Kippenbrock, Leah Haas and Claire Witte.
The boys swimming sectionals will take place on Feb. 17 at Jasper high school with spots in the state finals meet at Indianapolis on the line.
