The combined efforts of Kennedy Hanna, Bailey Menkedick, Grace Reiger and Katie McLean shattered the school record in the 400 freestyle relay to lead Greensburg to a 93.5-85.5 victory over Doe Creek in girls’ junior high swim action Thursday night.

The foursome finished the event in 4:33.83, lowering the standard by just over four seconds.

“That was awesome,” said Greensburg coach Josh Hawkins. “(However) my favorite race was the boys’ 100 freestyle in which Jarred Boncutter dropped 7 seconds and won his first-ever race in his swimming career.

“It was a really cool moment!”

Boncutter’s victory was one of just two for the Pirates. Brady Hahn won the 100 individual medley. Doe Creek won the boys’ meet 116-39.

Greensburg dominated the girls meet, with the record-setting foursome of Menkedick, McLean, Hanna and Reiger also winning the 200 medley relay.

Individual winners for the Greensburg girls included Menkedick, Hanna, McLean, Sarah Springmeyer and Molli Hurley. Menkedick won the 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle events. Hanna claimed the 50 freestyle, Springmeyer the 100 freestyle, Hurley the 100 backstroke and McLean the 100 breaststroke.
