Wow – this was a really solid road victory over a very good and highly ranked (4th) Zionsville Eagle squad. It sure did not come easy as your 8th ranked Lady Royals came out flat against a team that swims very tough – especially at their home pool!
Our IM’ers were super strong and Kennedy Fisher won the 50 Free but your Royals were still down 17 points at the diving break…after that, our Flyers outscored theirs and then Mo Pedersen led a 1st-3rd-4th 100 Free to pull their lead under 10 points. The 500 Freestylers were awesome and chipped away more at their lead…which all led to the backbreaker as your Lady Royals took 1st AND 2nd in the 200 Free Relay. Job well done by Katelyn Kertin, Kennedy Fisher, Grace Newton, Anna Stolle, Lauren Bergman, Ava Olson, Ashley Saple, and Paige Crawford!!!
The Royals got a split in the 100 Back and then got a 1st – 2nd finish in the 100 Breast from Kennedy Fisher and Katelyn Kertin. All of the 400 Free Relays were solid and that was enough to preserve the victory. This was the last regular meet of the season and this battle-tested team now turns its focus to the championships…whether you are a parent, fellow student, sibling, relative, in-person supporter, or virtual fan – this team appreciates and needs your support to finish this season the right way! Thanks to all and you can count on these young women to continue racing hard for the Royal Nation!
