SEYMOUR – Bedford North Lawrence’s Trey Kimbley won two events as the Stars clipped Seymour 98-87 during boys high school swimming action on Tuesday.
The Stars recorded wins in six events, including two relays. The Owls won the girls meet 128-39.
Kimbley touched first in the 200-yard freestyle (1:59.16) and the 500 free (5:21.91). He also combined with Alexander Swenson, Cole Baker and John Allen in BNL’s victorious 400 free relay (3:28.94).
BNL also won the 200 medley relay (with Baker, Garrett Henson, Swenson and Allen teaming to finish in 1:49.61), while Baker touched first in the 50 free (23.16). Kade Bailey won the diving with 168.95 points.
“The good news is the guys won the meet, finishing the season with a win streak of four in duals,” BNL coach Adam Young said. “However, the highlights are thin after that. Diving and a spirited, redeeming effort in the 400 free relay were the difference. Hats off to Seymour. They have a great team on both sides, and being Senior Night for them, they were highly motivated.
“We went into the meet with a list of goals, most of which involved improving times for better HHC seeding. We didn’t accomplish much on that list. Unfortunately Seymour outswam us across the board. I still feel positive about our chances at HHC and I am hoping tonight was the result of fatigue from training as we have not yet begun to back off on our workload.”
In the girls meet, BNL’s Emma Gabhart (fighting through the pain of a broken toe) won the 200 free (2:06.24) and the 100 backstroke (1:05.73). Shelby Slaughter clocked 1:26.30 while winning the 100 breaststroke.
BNL’s boys will compete in the Hoosier Hills Conference meet on Jan. 29.
