Logan swimmers top Eastern, Pioneer

Logansport’s girls swimming team recorded 98 points in season-opening wins over Eastern (78) and Pioneer (58) Thursday at the LHS pool.

The Berries have two returning state finalists back from a year ago in senior Emily Clark and junior Becca Yeoman, and Yeoman and junior Jen Crafford were North Central Conference champions a year ago.

On Thursday, Yeoman swept wins in the 50 and 100 free, and Crafford won the 200 IM and 100 breast. Clark was third in the 100 fly.

Brooke Bullard won diving with a personal-best score. Katie Easter, Crafford, Clark and Yeoman won the 200 medley relay, and Brittany Morrow, Clark, Crafford and Yeoman won the 400 free relay.

“It was a good start to the season,” LHS coach Heidi Hendricks-Knight said. “We have quite a few new girls that had some great swims. I’m looking forward to seeing what they will do this year. We have a lot of work in front of us.”

Hendricks-Knight added she was happy with the swims by newcomers Kiersten Achey, a junior, and freshmen Isabelle Kraud and Abby Newell.

Gabby Harvey won the 500 freestyle for the lone win on the night for Pioneer.
