Chesterton girls swim coach Kevin Kinel preaches depth.

For the first time in a long time, the Trojans didn’t win as many races as their opponent, but the scoreboard remained the same in a 107-79 decision over Crown Point on Tuesday.

“We had a tremendous meet against a good team,” Kinel said. “We always look forward to this meet and we had kids step up right and left. Our depth definitely came through.”

The Bulldogs won 8-of-12 events, including the first three, but the Trojans dominated every event.

“Early in the meet, Wendy Banta-Long had a tremendous swim in the 200 Free to get us a 2-3-4 finish,” Kinel said. “Our IM kids all stepped up in a big way and then Vanessa (Krause) swam a great race in the 50 Free.”

The Trojans found themselves down 40-38 after Diving before the Bulldogs won the 100 Fly and the 100 Free. Again, Chesterton finished 2-3-4 including a school-record setting performance by Vanessa Krause in the 100 Fly (56.02).

Julia Campbell got the Trojans final individual victory with a win in the 500 Free (5:04.79) just ahead of the 200 Free Relay group of Madisyn Coudriet, Marita Banta-Long, Kelly Craig and Campbell winning in 1:40.90).

“Julia (Campbell) swam two great races again and Kelly Craig went 5:12 in the 500 in her first time in the event this year,” Kinel said. “We know we have another distance girl.”

A 2-3-4 finish in the 100 Back and 100 Breast followed.

“Our breaststroker’s all swam great with Mae (Bass), Brittany (Boryzch) and Gena (Banta-Long),” Kinel said. “The list just goes on and on and on.”

Chesterton put the final touches on the victory with a win in the 400 Free Relay from the quartet of Krause, Campbell, Kate Curley and Craig in 3:34.70.

“I’m really happy for the girls,” Kinel said. “It’s a big win. Big for the program and hopefully they can start setting their sights on some big things down the road now.”
