Bruins fall to Lebanon in dual meet

By Justin Whitaker

Lizton — Both Sagamore Conference swimming and diving teams knew what to expect after only seeing each other last Saturday.

The results were Lebanon beating Tri-West in both the boys’ and girls’ events. The Tigers won the boys’ 101-83 and the girls’ 128-55.

For the Bruins, the results were satisfactory considering its fifth and seventh places at conference in the girls’ and boys’ events compared to the first and third of Lebanon.

“Overall, we were pretty pleased,” Tri-West coach Jeff Sankey said. “We’ve got a lot of girls that are sick right now, we’ve got a lot of girls who are hurt right now. Numbers-wise, we are hoping to have everybody healthy by the time sectionals roll around.

“Lebanon is a huge team, size wise for us to compete with in both boys and girls.”

Coming off a great performance at conference, Lebanon continued it’s high performance.

“We placed pretty well,” Lebanon coach Michael Dollens said. “We had a chance to change our events from conference because they don’t like to swim the same events all the time, it gets stale. So we changed up our lineup a little bit and some of the kids responded really well.”
