(St. Leon, Ind.) – East Central swimmers will be busy the next couple of weeks at big time competitions.

Beginning Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21, the East Central Swim Team will compete at the Senior Long Course State Championships at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis.

Among those competing is Jackson Ketcham, Nick Weber and soon-to-be Wisconsin Milwaukee freshman Jacob Weber.

The following week, Vincent Keck will represent the AquaTrojans at the Age Group Long Course State Meet from July 26-28.

“Vincent Keck has been swimming for a few years now,” said Coach Loveless. “He continuously gets better and continuously works harder each day. His state qualification is proof that if you work hard, goals can be met, and dreams can come true.”

From there, EC will send one squad to the Southern Indiana Divisional Championship at Franklin Community High School on August 2-3 and another squad to the USA Swimming Futures Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina from August 1-4.

The following swimmers (pictured from left to right) will represent EC at the Southern Indiana Divisional Championships at Franklin Community High School: Kaden Cummins, Luke Jackson, Skyler Cavins, Reagan Reany, Mackenzie Schantz, Jordan Marro, Riley Reany, Tara Hall, Emily Hafertepen, Ayden Ketchem, Kyle Goodwin, Vincent Keck, Madison Goodwin, Cole Jankovsky, Elle Jankovsky, Kayla Goodwin, Sierra Hall (not pictured Ryan Corlett, Ray Krider).  Photo provided.

Kyra Hall, Jackson Ketcham, and Nick Weber will show off their skills at the USA Swimming Futures Championships.   

“Kyra Hall has had a rough summer. She’s fought injury to come back strong and is in top condition to prove herself on a national level,” said Coach Loveless. “Jackson Ketcham and Nick Weber will once again be rewarded for hard work and great swimming. This meet will take SEI swimming and the EC AquaTrojans on the National Stage.” He also goes on to say, “It’s truly a privilege to coach such fine young men and women. Congrats and Good Luck to all East Central Swim Team participants.  Go AquaTrojans!!!”
