Haussin was one of those who set personal bests in her races and the PB from the 100 fly may have come from a change in her technique.
She had been breathing every two strokes in previous races, but in the final, she switched to once every three.
“That’s what I was taught to do,” said Furr, “but the change came from Becca.”
Haussin said, “Breathing is hard work, but today I really was just concentrating on getting off the wall as fast as I could and swimming as fast as I could. The breathing just happened.”
Attica had one individual, Zoe Jordan, in two “A” finals as well as one of their relay teams. All finished at or above their seeding and swam better times than in the prelims.
That caused head coach Dale Peterson to say, “It was a good day” and for Morgan Piper, his assistant to add, “With what we had here today.”
She went on to say that the Ramblers are working on building their numbers and that most of their swimmers are young and should be returning next season.
North Vermillion did not have any swimmers in the individual finals, but did have two relay teams, both of which had no seniors, two juniors and two freshmen.
As Falcon coach Elizabeth Claghorn said at the Wabash River Conference meet, “We’re building and looking forward to next year.”
Just like last year, diver Glory Forrest represented Rockville. She finished second in the 1-meter event and will advance to the diving regional next week.
