Tyrone boys swim team closes season with win

The Tyrone boys swim team closed out the regular season by turning back Central Cambria to record their 11th victory of the season, 96-71, Monday evening, in the Tyrone Area High School pool. The Eagles ended up 10-4, in second place in the Mountain League Swimming Conference.
Ethan Nulton (200 IM, 100 backstroke) and Ian McGregor (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle) were double winners for the Eagles. Dustin Elder won the 500 freestyle, and Ethan Lewis won the 100 butterfly. Tyrone also had two of the three relays take first place, with Elder, Allen Hosko, Nulton and McGregor winning the 200 medley relay, and Kegan Fink, McGregor, Elder and Nulton winning the 200 freestyle relay.
“The boys had another successful season led by a strong group of returning letter winners,” said Tyrone swim coach Tom Getz, “such as Ethan Nulton, Dustin Elder and Allen Hosko along with newcomers and underclassmen really stepping up, such as Ian McGregor, Ethan Lewis, Evan Lewis, and Kegan Fink.”
The Lady Eagles (4-10-1) dropped a 92-77 decision to the Central Cambria girls.
Chynna Beisel led the Tyrone girls with wins in both the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle. Christina Brisbin won the 100 breaststroke, Kelly Pearson won the 100 freestyle, and Brittany Day won the 50 freestyle.
The Lady Eagles 200 freestyle relay team of Brisbin, Abbie Cowfer, Beisel and Salena Bradigan won the 200 freestyle relay.
“The girls, although finishing with only four wins, improved dramatically,” said Getz. “We were able to bring in four brand new swimmers this year which helped a lot, as we are typically low in numbers with the girls. I expect these girls to contribute next year. The returning letterwinners, Kelly Pearson, Salena Bradigan, Brittany Day, Chynna Beisel and Abby Cowfer, for the girls really led the team through the season, and many of our losses were very close meets. We only lose one senior-Pearson, so if we can add some more girls next year, I think we will be on the right track.”
“Now we get ready for districts. My goal at the beginning of the season was half of the team qualifying for districts,” explained Getz. “We qualified 14 of 26 swimmers for this years districts.”
