Eagles take second and two state champs

The Zionsville girls’ swimming and diving team couldn’t be happier with its performance Saturday, Feb. 11, in the IHSAA State finals at the IUPUI Natatorium.

The Eagles brought home state championships in two events, runners-up in two events and finished second as a team.

Senior Zoe Mattingly (1:49.53) was a state champion in the 200-yard freestyle after finishing sixth in the preliminaries (1:50.68) on Friday, Feb. 10.

Mattingly was also part of the state champions in the 200 free relay with fellow senior Lizzie Lyon, junior Grace Einterz and sophomore Alex Cleveland (1:34.63). The team was in fifth place after Lyon on the third leg. Mattingly took off and swam a 22.40 to take first place.

Mattingly’s time was more than a second faster than any other team’s last leg.

“That was a strong finish,” Zionsville coach Scott Kubly said. “The way that team finished and the heart they had, it was fun to see.”

Friday, the team finished fourth (1:36.45).

“I’m definitely so happy with it,” Mattingly said. “To win a relay with the team means so much more to me than any individual state championship could mean. Each one of those girls brought it today, and I couldn’t have done it without them.”

Mattingly (50.27) also finished second in the 100 free, a race she won last year. Senior Olivia Kabacinski (49.94) of Chesterton won the event.

Also finishing in second was the 400 free relay team of Mattingly, Lyon, sophomore Hannah Mitchell and freshman Taite Kitchel (3:26.92). After Mitchell, the team was in sixth, Lyon bumped the team up to fifth and Kitchel put the team in third.

Mattingly took the last leg again and brought the team to second. On Friday, the team finished third (3:29.07).

“Some of the things we achieved today I hadn’t even dreamed of, so I can’t express how happy I am right now,” Lyon said.
