Swimming and Winning

 On Tuesday, November 30th, the CHS swim teams dove into the pool for arguably their most important Duneland Conference Meet out at Crown Point High School, where they took on the Bulldogs.  The Trojans left no doubt who the premier team in the Duneland is again, winning the meet by a score of 137 to 48.

     The meet started off with the 200-yard medley relay which was won by the Trojans with a time of 1:40:83. The Trojans continued to assert their dominance over the hosts, winning the 100-Yard Fly (Alejandro Kincaid), the 500-Yard Freestyle (Gabe Eschabah), the 100-Yard Backstroke (Gavin Nagdamin), and the 100-Yard Breaststroke (Amandeo Kincaid). In the relay races, the Trojans won the 200-Yard Medley, the 200-Yard Freestyle, and the 400-Yard Freestyle, sweeping the relays all together.   Members of the 400-Yard Freestyle relay were Scottie Peijic, Jonathan Peijic, Daniel Streeter, and Kincaid; members of the relay were Tim McNicholas, Alex Smith, Calan Berrier, and Elijiah Arulandu, and members of the 200-Yard Medly relay were Kincaid, Ethan Moody, Scottie Peinji, and Eschenbach.

During the Diving portion of the meet, Chesterton came through placing first with 235 points (Lucas  Lauzon), second with 154.55 points (Rylan Lligdon), and third with 151.75 points (Leonidas Manta). 

 In the end, the Trojans look to keep their dominating swims consistent throughout the season.  As the team continues to get better toward the end of the season, this year’s Chesterton swim team is looking to make some noise in the state meet by the end of the year.
