High expectations as season begins for Zionsville swim teams

The Zionsville swimming and diving teams have been in the water morning and afternoon the past few weeks gearing up for the new season. Head coach Scott Kubly likes what he has seen from his teams as they get ready. "Things have been progressing well," Kubly said. "All of them are working hard and have good attitudes. It is going to be a good season." The girls started their season Nov. 19. Kubly said the expectations are high for the team that returns a lot of key pieces. "The goals have come directly from the girls." Kubly said. "They want to have an undefeated season, win the Hall of Fame Meet, win our sectional, win the HCC and finish state runner-up again (Eagles were second in 2012, third in 2013). I think those are good goals for them. At the Hall of Fame, we will see Penn, beat us at state for second by a few points. They are pretty strong expectations and I think they could achieve them." Alex Cleveland is the defending state champion in the 50-yard freestyle and leads a list of four returning state qualifiers. In addition to the win in the 50, the Tennessee recruit placed fourth in the 100-yard backstroke. She was also part of the 200-yard medley relay team that placed third and part of the 200-yard freestyle relay team that placed third. Also back is Taite Kitchel, who placed fifth in the 200-yard IM and sixth in the 100-yard butterfly. She also was part of the 200-yard medley relay team and the 400-yard freestyle relay team that placed fifth. Kylie Mihok placed 23rd in the 200-yard freestyle and was part of the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relay teams. Anna Savery was 19th in the 500-yard freestyle and part of the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relay teams. Kubly said he also expects Cally Sampson, Sarah Luciani, Emma Bumbar, Audrey Battisti, Greta DeCoursey and Jordan Thielbar to be key contributors this winter.
