Greensburg record falls at swim sectional

Columbus — The Greensburg boys swim team concluded the winter season in the Columbus North Boys Swimming Sectional Saturday.

Head coach Josh Hawkins could not have been more pleased with the execution of his squad in the state’s fastest and deepest sectional.

“It was an overall great meet for our boys,” said Hawkins. According to Hawkins, every single swim (with the exception of one race) was a lifetime best in the preliminaries.

“The guys executed perfectly and I honestly couldn’t have asked for better,” he said.

Highlighting the meet was junior Nick Oesterling’s performance in the 100-yard backstroke. The third-year high school swimmer broke a 20-year old school record by more than a second. The old record was 57.30 and Oesterling clocked a 56.28.

“To give an idea as to how fast and competitive our sectional is,” noted Hawkins, “Nick finished fifth with that time while that would have placed as high as second in a handful of other sectionals, and the old school record time was a sectional champion and state qualifier, Eric Panhorst.”

Other notable swims were Oesterling finishing 10th in the 100 FR in a personal best by two seconds. Brady Niles dropped almost a second in the 50 FR to finish 12th, and all three relays swam season best in A finals.

The 200 medley relay of Oesterling, Niles, Andrew Schroeder, and Spencer Kuehl finished sixth. The 200 FR relay of Niles, Kuehl, Schroeder, and Drew Reiger finished eighth, and the 400 FR relay of Niles, Kuehl, Reiger and Oesterling finished sixth. Drew Reiger finished 15th in the 500 FR with a personal best and Spencer Kuehl was 16th in the 50 FR.

Hawkins also pointed out that freshmen Gavin Amburgey and Jadrian Woods “swam excellently,” with personal bests in both of their swims.

“Both of those guys have made huge improvements over the course of this season. I’m absolutely thrilled by their progress and excited about their future. They are both intelligent and disciplined young men – two qualities that will make them incredibly successful in the pool and beyond.”
