The Chesterton boys
swim team will be the top seed in all 11 races and broke two Sectional
records Thursday night at the IHSAA Sectional Prelims at LaPorte.
“We did what we
needed to do to set ourselves up for Saturday,” Chesterton coach Kevin Kinel
said. “It’s hard. Some of them are looking ahead to Saturday. Some are
looking ahead to next Saturday. I have to keep reminding them that you can’t
skip any steps.”
Blake Pieroni (100
Free) and Aaron Whitaker (100 Fly) broke their own Sectional records.
“Blake and Aaron
kind of cruised tonight to breaking Sectional records,” Kinel said. “That
bodes well. It was typical prelim night.”
The Trojans will be
seeded 1-2-3 in five events and have no one seeded below fifth.
“Both of Jack
Wallar’s swims were good today,” Kinel said. “Tony Kincaid’s 500 was good
and its only the second time he’s done it. Andrew Gillen’s breaststroke was
awfully good. Andy Hurst and Gary Kostbade also had a good night in both
their individual events.”
