The Chesterton girls swimming and diving team finished second in a loaded 4-team field at the North Central Invitational in Indianapolis on Friday.

Fishers edged the Trojans for the team title, 253-251, with Hamilton Southeastern finishing third (190) and Indianapolis North Central (188) was fourth.

“We had a great meet against really good competition,” Chesterton coach Kevin Kinel said. “All the teams that were there were ranked and we were the lowest ranked team.”

The Trojans won two events as the 200 Medley Relay group of Caylee Casbon, Cara Kroeger, Vanessa Krause and Marita Banta-Long won in 1:48.96. Krause also won the 100 Fly (55.52).

“Vanessa did her thing by winning the Fly and being close in the 50 Free,” Kinel said. “The Medley Relay was our best time of the year. We keep dropping time there.”

Kroeger finished second in the 200 IM and 100 Back, while Krause was runner-up in the 50 Free and Amy Socha was second in the 500 Free.

“Cara Kroeger was tough in both her individual events and the relays,” Kinel said. “Amy is getting pretty consistent in the 500 Free. Our top line kids did what they needed to do for the most part.”

Third place finishers included Micaela Claudio (Diving), Kelly Craig (100 Breast) and the 400 Free Relay quartet of Krause, Andrea Hanas, Socha and Craig.

“That’s the second time we’ve been 36 and that’s a good consistent swim in the 400 Free Relay,” Kinel said. “Our divers stayed with some of the best divers in the State. They really performed well.”

Kinel also pointed to performances by Trenee Fancher-Keller, Wendy Banta-Long, Stephanie Krause and Casbon.

“We got some really good swims from the our second, third and fourth lines especially during the holidays,” Kinel said. “Trenee Fancher-Keller and Wendy Banta-Long had great days. They really stepped up with best times. Stephanie Krause had great swims. Caylee Casbon was on her best times too.”
