Pirates split against host Knights
In earlier action, the Pirate swimmers split against South Dearborn last Thursday. South Dearborn beat the Lady Pirates 100-80, while Greensburg’s boys beat the Knights 113-38.
Head coach Josh Hawkins was impressed with the boys 200-yard medley relay team of Oesterling, Niles, Dashiell and Starkey, who won with a time of 1:57.65.
“They swam fast,” he said. He also said Reiger swam “really well” in the 200-yard IM as he won in 2:32.86, a personal best. Reiger also won the 100 breast in 1:21.85.
Starkey won the 200 freestyle in 2:33.20, a PR.
Brady Niles won the 50 free (25.29) with a PR and also won the 100 fly with a PR of 1:11.92.
Starkey also won two events, including the 100 free.
Oesterling tallied a PR in the 500 free in 5:49.53.
The boys were victorious in the 200 free relay (Reiger, Andrew Schroeder, Spencer Kuehl, Dashiell) in 1:49.63, and the 400 free relay (Niles, Reiger, Starkey and Oesterling) in 3:51.
The girls won the 200 free relay (Brianna and Morgan Stagge, Bausback and Oesterling).
Hawkins said the girls medley relay bounced back, while the 200 medley relay and the 200 free relay recorded wins.
Kaleigh McGinn (112.05) and Kyle Howard (96.30) each won the diving.
Megan McDole was second in the 200 free (2:26.39) and third in the 100 backstroke (1:18.91).
Next for the Aqua Pirates is a home meet against Columbus East Tuesday, and Greensburg senior Justin Starkey will swim in his final home meet Thursday against Southwestern Hanover.
