Aqua Lady Pirates second in EIAC

McGinn wins EIAC diving crown

Lawrenceburg — The Greensburg boys and girls swimming teams competed in the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference diving and swimming meet this weekend at Lawrenceburg.

The boys finished third behind East Central and Batesville, while the girls finished 2nd only three points behind South Dearborn. The girls actually led the meet 67-66 heading into the final relay and had a body length lead going into the final leg only to be out touched by .18. It would have been Greensburg’s first swimming conference championship in school history.

On Friday night, Kaleigh McGinn won the diving competition by a whopping 50 points to become the schools first conference diving champ in over a decade. In the swimming portion, Molly Oesterling defended her 50-yard freestyle title and also won the 100 FR tying her for conference MVP. She also teamed up with Abby Bausback, Bri Stagge, and Morgan Stagge to win the 200 FR Relay.

Other female point scorers were Bri Stagge 2nd in 200 FR and 3rd 500 FR (both in personal record times), Megan McDole third in 200 IM and fifth in breaststroke, Abby Bausback was third in the 100 fly and 100 back, and Morgan Stagge was fourth in the 100 back.

For the boys, Nick Oesterling finished second in both the 200 IM and 100 back, Brady Niles was 4th in the 200 FR and 6th in the 100 FR, Andy Dashiell was 6th in the 100 fly, and Drew Reiger was 4th in the 500 FR.

“All in all, it was a good day for the Pirate swimmers,” said head coach Josh Hawkins. “We are a very young and inexperienced team, both boys and girls. So I am proud of how we competed today. What’s exciting is that I don’t think we swam anywhere near our potential and fortunately for us we have five more weeks for the girls, seven for the boys, and we are going to work really hard and significantly improve during that time. We really wanted to win that girls meet, so it was a tough pill to swallow losing it the way we did. Hopefully it did two things; one, give our girls confidence that they can compete at that level and two, make them determined to not let it happen again.”
