The lady Trojan swimmers finished in 3rd place during their 3-way meet with Muncie Burris and University High School over the weekend. Individually, New Castle was led by Lylah Hutson, winning the 500 Freestyle and placing 2nd in the 200 Freestyle. Caitlin Shunneson placed 2nd in Diving for the Trojans. Bailey Smith brought home a couple 3rd place finishes in the 100 Freestyle and the 100 Breaststroke. In the relays, the Medley Relay team of Mackenzie Smoot, Smith, Hutson, and Payton Plank placed 3rd, and the 400 Freestyle Relay team of Plank, Hannah Hamacher, Smith, and Hutson placed 2nd to finish the meet.
Overall, I was really happy with how the girls swam. We tried some new events with different people, and we’re going to keep experimenting with new events. We had a couple of hiccups with those, but for the most part it was pretty successful. I really like this group of girls. Especially how hard they work and how well they support each other. That will only pay off for them in future meets. We next swim Muncie Central on Tuesday.
