Logan's Bullard wins sectional title in diving


Pioneer’s Kaity Cover was fourth in the 100 free (:58.13) and sixth in the 200 IM (2:29.77).

Logan’s Kraud was seventh in the 500 free (6:01.55). Paulie Frye was seventh in the 100 breast (1:20.23).

“This was an exciting meet and a great finish to the year for these girls,” LHS coach Heidi Hendricks-Knight said. “They had a huge improvement from Thursday. Our 200 medley team just got touched out for first place.

“It was really fun to watch. Yeoman PR’d in both her races. They all swam their best swims this year. I’m really proud of them.”

Logansport resident Eberle Miller, a senior at Culver Academies, won the 200 free (1:58.97) and 100 back (1:00.24) and swam the anchor on the Eagles’ winning 400 free relay team (3:54.32) and was part of their third-place medley relay team.

Carroll 59, Pioneer 49

Pioneer fell into an early 10-point hole and never quite recovered in a home loss to Carroll.

The Panthers trailed 18-10 after one quarter. They went on to tie Carroll 9-9, 13-13 and 19-19 over the final three quarters.

“We got it down to four with four minutes left. They were the better team tonight,” Pioneer coach Austin Cowley said. “The effort is there. The execution is coming along better and better. We’re not having as big of lapses. We forced more turnovers than we committed tonight. I’m happy overall. We lost to a better team which doesn’t make the loss any easier.”

Caleb Kindley led the Panthers (1-13) with 16 points. He was followed by Zach Mason (8), Keith Nies (7), Sam Kiser (6), Chad Clifford (5), J.P. Smith (4) and Brad Biggs (3).

Brad Dillon had 19 points and Seth Eldridge scored 14 to lead the Cougars (6-8). Jarin Bush and Derick Caldwell each had seven, and Jared Miller added six.

“They were just able to take care of their advantage in the post,” Cowley said. “They made 5 of 8 3-pointers in the first half and finished with six. We were banking on them not shooting well and packed it in. Eldrige was the difference in the game with 14 points.”
