The Batesville high school men’s and women’s swimming dove into competition in Lawrenceburg for a nail-biter. Overall, the Bulldog men won the competition while the women dropped the meet, finishing in third place, but only by a total margin of 5 points.
And while the total margin for the women was 5, the Lady Bulldogs dropped the meet by a single point to the host Tigers.
“We swam the best meet we could given our circumstances, but Neil and Steve had a stronger line-up on the women’s side. We get another chance next week to try and eek out a win when we head to Milan for our quad meet (which will include Southwestern-Hanover),” said Coach McMullen.
As for the men, they were able to finish a strong back-half effort winning 6 of 7 events after the break.
“Both of our teams are really starting to hit a stride as we start to wind down the season. Hopefully we can maintain this momentum as we move to Sectionals.”
“With the additional challenges put into place with the pandemic, we’re still happy to be competing and hope to continue doing so as we approach February.”
