Tonight for a Sagamore Conference match-up the Tri-West and Lebanon swim teams battled it out in the swimming pool and both teams walked away with a victory.

The Tri-West boys defeated the Lebanon boys 113-68, and the Lebanon girls conquered the Tri-West girls 111-71.

"It's always hard to go off a conference meet into dual meets. I can't expect the kids to have the same times they did at the conference," says Lebanon's Head Coach Wade Thatcher.

Lebanon's Courtney Reynolds made a new personal best in 200 yard freestyle at 2:21.15 for second place. Lebanon's Gabi Reese also scored a new personal best in the 500 yard freestyle with a time of 5:57.52. Reese won first place in the event.

The Lebanon girls were not the only one breaking their own records. Nathan Wire, Luke Betts, and Aaron Fischer each made a new personal best in the 200 yard freestyle event. Betts placed 3rd with 2:12.86, Wire came in 5th with 2:26.42, and Fischer placed 6th with 2:36.69.

"Coming out of the meet, I thought we swam pretty well after a big meet. Our personal times were not the best, but really close. I was happy with our performance," says Thatcher.

Wish the swim teams luck as Tri-West travels to Indianapolis Broad Ripple, and the Lebanon swim team as they welcome North Montgomery Jan. 22.
