Raiders nip AlicesJanuary 8, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Vincennes Lincoln sported individuals who left content, but Southridge boasted a team full of swimmers with a reason to be satisfied.
The Raider girls clipped Vincennes Lincoln 84-82 on Monday at the Vincennes YMCA, banking on their depth as the Alices snagged the top spot in seven of 11 races. Taylor Miles bolted to a pair of wins for Southridge, taking first in the 50-yard freestyle by a second and a half, and later dominating the 100 backstroke by more than six seconds over the next finisher. Heather Deel (100 free) and Ellie Langebrake (500 free) also claimed victories to key the Raiders’ sweep of the individual freestyle events.
Kyla Schwinghammer also factored into the Raiders’ depth, placing second in the 100 butterfly and third in the 100 backstroke.
The Alices won all 11 events in the boys meet to secure a 120-28 victory as Landon Boehm topped the Raiders with two runner-up finishes (200 free, 500 free).

The Jeep boys collected five victories with the first two coming in succession, as Zach Wittmann (2:25.72) first darted to first place in the 200 individual medley by more than 13 seconds before Lucas Schulthies (23.04) zipped past the rest of the field by better than two seconds in the 50 free. Schulthies (100 free) and Caleb Scherzinger (500 free) tacked on more Northeast Dubois victories before combining with Wittmann and Jalen Seger to take first in the 200 freestyle relay as the Jeep quartet grazed Pike Central by two-hundredths of a second.
Kaitlyn Bauer delivered a win for the Jeep girls in the 100 breaststroke, and Tylynn Schaber added a second-place effort in the 100 backstroke for Northeast Dubois.
