Decatur Co. Tiger Sharks swim best meet in decade

The Decatur County Tiger Sharks hosted the annual SEISA Championship Swim Meet.

SEISA is a summer swim league compromised of teams from Batesville, Greensburg, Hidden Valley, Madison, Milan, and South Dearborn. More than 350 athletes ranging in age from 5 to 18 competed in the meet and ended with Batesville’s 14-year winning streak coming to an end.

The Tiger Sharks had their best performance in a decade, placing a close third as Milan won with 2,209 points. Batesville followed with 1,862, the local Tiger Sharks were third with 1,795, Hidden Valley fourth with 974, South Dearborn fifth with 784, and Madison sixth with 623.

Head coach Josh Hawkins, back at the helm in his second campaign for his second season, was very pleased with the way his team swam.

“We had some incredible swims today,” said Hawkins. “Our swimmers have improved tremendously and we are now on the verge of something very special! But, congratulations to Milan on their first championship victory. They have been building that program for the last five to six years with a strong year-round USA club team, and it all paid off today.”

The Tiger Sharks started the meet off strong as they did in every meet this summer with Bri Stagge winning the 200 FR in a personal best 2:06.99. Nick Oesterling then matched her by winning the Boys 200 FR in a personal best of 2:00.67.

The Girls 10U Medley Relay consisting of Kylie Hostetler, Brenner Hanna, Katie McLean, and Sophia Taylor finished second, but set a Tiger Shark team record in a time of 2:47.54.

The next big swim came when the 18U Girls of Morgan Stagge, Megan McDole, B. Stagge, and Molly Oesterling won the 200 Medley Relay.

Jacob Hawkins and Jonah Hellmich finished 2-3 in the Boys 6U 25 Free.

Sophia Taylor finished 2nd in the Girls 10U 50 Free and Valeria Busto also finished 2nd in the Girls 12U 50 Free. M. Oesterling and B. Stagge then finished 1-2 in the Girls 18U 50 Free with Molly setting a personal best and Tiger Shark team record in 26.11.
