While swimming is most often associated with the scorching days of summer, Jennings County High School swimmers think of winter when the IHSAA swimming and diving season begins. JCHS teams are a little smaller this year than they have been in the past, but in a sport that is both a team sport and an individual sport, even small teams can win. The team is coached by Morgan Webster, head coach, Jeff Jones, Dea Jones and Bill Dillon, assistant coaches, and Casey Ernstes, diving coach.

BOYS OVERVIEWThe men’s team is made up of four seniors, Rylan Campbell, Jonathan Jones, Levi Marsh and Noah McFall. These four boys were the backbone of the swim team last season and will continue that role this year as team captains. The bottom three of those boys made their way to the top eight in sections last year, with McFall ranking the highest for JCHS with a 6th-place finish in the 500-yard freestyle.

McFall has his sights set on the elusive 500-yard freestyle record, a time that has stood for nearly a decade since Trever Wilson set the record in 2013 at 5:00.43. McFall is also looking to compete in other events like the 200-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly.

Jones is in his second year as team captain and has been an incredible leader for a young team. Jonathan has demonstrated his proficiency in the 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard breaststroke, among other events, and he could be used as a wild card this season, being able to put in fast times in all events.

Marsh is Jennings County’s sprint freestyler, and he will continue down that path in his senior year. If his time progresses as much as it did last year, he’s on course to finish atop this year’s section. Campbell is coming off an injury early in the season but is looking to make her first jump in the section finals this season in the 100-yard butterfly or 100-yard breaststroke.

Apart from the seniors, there are plenty of youngsters, with the rest of the team consisting of a sophomore and two freshmen. Preston Harriman returns for his second year, coming off a berth in the sectional consolation final in the 200-yard freestyle last season. Harriman’s potential has yet to be tapped and could feature in many events this season.

Freshmen Jace Phillips and Dawson Leak come from the cross country team swim team and transitioned into the water well.

GIRLS PREVIEWThe Lady Panthers had one of their best years in recent history after finishing the season with seven records broken and two swimmers competing in the state. The women’s team is losing its strength, however, with the graduation of Reagan Brown and Grace Kirchner, the brewers from last year’s team. That being said, this team still has plenty of talent on the roster.

The only senior on the women’s team is Lydia Ponsler. Lydia also holds the role of team captain for the team. Ponsler is a solid leader in and out of the water, and will contribute to the Lady Panther team freestyle events.

The strength of the team comes in the form of two juniors, Tatum Brown and Avery Witt. Tatum finished last season with two top-5 finishes in the 200 and 500 yard freestyle sections. Tatum will continue to focus his talents on the distance freestyle events this season, as well as possibly winning the 100 breaststroke, his sister’s favorite event.

Avery ended last year with a trip to the IHSAA state championship in Indianapolis after winning the section crown in the 200-yard freestyle. She placed second in the 100m backstroke sections. This year, she plans to continue her dominant streak at JCHS, break more records, and compete in the state championship again.

The other returning junior this season is Sarah Jaquess. Sarah is known to the team as the all-around swimmer, having competed in all events at the end of the season last year.

The Lady Panther sophomore class is led by Alyssa Monnin and Hannah Webster, both butterfly swimmers for JCHS. Both girls will be eager to see who will swim the fastest by the end of the season.

Jennings County was pleased to welcome a plethora of new swimmers to the team this season, with five new additions to the team. Juniors Rachel Manning and Kenzie Wells and freshmen Kathrine Brunner and Shelby Davis have spent their time learning the strokes and have come a long way since their first days in the water. Freshman Harmony Ernstes is the only newbie with experience, coming from the college program. Ernstes will be diving for JCHS, with a few swimming events sprinkled in here and there.

NEXT MEETINGBoth teams will start their season next Tuesday, November 29, at home against Madison and Southwestern (Hanover). The meeting at the HR Purkhiser Natatorium of the JCMS will begin at 6 p.m.

TEXAS – LSU’s swim and dive teams are in full swing for their individual midseason invites, with the swim team wrapping up day two and the diving team wrapping up day one Thursday inside the Rec Center Natatorium and Jamail Swimming Center, respectively.

LSU ended day two of the Art Adamson Invitational with more impressive performances from Maggie MacNeil. MacNeil, who holds four school records, broke his own records in the 100-yard backstroke and 100-yard butterfly.

Both the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke times are NCAA qualifying times.

Rookie Megan Barnes continued to show her potential by taking second place in the 200 free yards. Her time of 1:45.26 is the second fastest time in school history and is the fastest in the women’s team 200m this season.

Another freshman, Chloe Cheng, hit the wall in the 400-yard IM with a time of 4:17.54, which puts her name in the program’s top 10 for the event.

On the men’s side, Brooks Curry swam an NCAA provisional time in the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:33.56. Mitch Mason did the same in the 100-yard breaststroke, hitting the wall with a cut “B” time – 53.30.

At the Texas Diving Invitational, Chiara Pellacani took second place on the three-meter springboard with a score of 366.15. His scoring on the event is the team’s best this season and improves his position to No. 6 in LSU’s top 10 for the event.

Helle Tuxen and Montserrat Gutierrez Lavenant finished seventh and eighth respectively with scores of 295.80 and 278.60.

For the one-metre springboard, Adrian Abadia qualified for the final and took seventh place with a score of 335.80.

Echo Waves: Packer State playoffs have ties to past greats

Posted 6:59 p.m. on Monday, November 14, 2022

The Packer swim and dive team has a lot of tradition and a lot of excitement on their side as they prepare to compete in the Minnesota Class A swim and dive competition at the University of Minnesota this week.

Austin senior Olivia Walsh has a new school record and will compete in her fourth straight state meet after going state in swimming, basketball and track and field last year, a young relay team is on about to begin his rise in the sport and a pair of divers who have relied on each other all year are ready to compete together on the big stage for the first time.

Walsh will represent the Packers in the 50-yard freestyle, 100-yard freestyle and 200-yard freestyle relay. The senior has already broken the 100m freestyle record, which was set by Stacy Bjorle in 2002 and she also has her sights set on the 50m freestyle record.

“It’s been a long time coming. I’ve been close so many times and it was nice to finally see it happen,” Walsh said. Adrenaline from Friday’s final helped push me to the limits.”

As Walsh winds down her swimming career, her 200-yard freestyle relay teammates are just getting started. Gracie Greenman and Abbie Boysen are eighth graders and Alivia Hemry is a freshman. Walsh is happy to have them with him for the ride.

“Being alone on the bridge is no fun, so I’ll be happy to have company,” Walsh said. “Seeing the potential of this team is really exciting.”

It’s the first time the Packers have sent a relay team to the state since 2014.

Greenman is the younger sister of former AHS swimmer Lindsay Lukes, who set the school’s 200 individual medley record in 2005 and Hemry’s mother, Amanda (Martin) Hemry, swam with Lukes in the team record 200-yard freestyle relay in 2002.

“At the start of the season, if someone had told me I would be swimming at the state, I wouldn’t have believed them for a moment,” Hemry said. “I’ve wanted to chase after my mum’s (relay) record for so long and we’re getting closer and closer.”

Greenman also swims in the 500-yard freestyle at the state and she got some advice from her older sister ahead of her first appearance in the state.

“My sister is up there and I chased after a lot of her times,” Greenman said. “She texted me after I did it and she said I was getting better and she told me what to work on.”

Boysen is a little giddy to be competing at State, but she earned it by showing up every day and working hard with her highly motivated teammates.

“My friends, teammates and parents have all been really supportive,” Boysen said.

Austin’s two sophomore divers have grown closer this season and the past few weeks have brought them even closer. Alayna Kennedy was injured a few weeks ago and she was also bedridden with illness prior to the Section 1A meeting. She was able to drop by and get to her first state meet through a quick chat with Reese Norton, the other state qualifying diver.

“We had three dives left and I said Reese, let’s just focus on our last three dives. She said ‘let’s go do the state together’ and that got me excited,” Kennedy said. “My training sessions the previous weekend were quite difficult, but (last) Monday I was ready to go.”

Norton competed in the national gymnastics competition last season, but this is her first time competing in diving. She received guidance from her older brother Riley, who was four times state qualified in diving.

“The nerves are always there for me in competitions,” Reese said. “I talked to Riley about it and he told me not to focus on it being the sectional meet and just get my dives.”

Class A diving preliminaries will be at noon Wednesday, swimming preliminaries will be at noon Thursday and Class A finals will be at noon Saturday. All events are held at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.

Olympic gold medalist diver Tom Daley uses platform to advocate for LGBTQ rights – Reuters https://divegearjp.com/olympic-gold-medalist-diver-tom-daley-uses-platform-to-advocate-for-lgbtq-rights-reuters/ Sat, 12 Nov 2022 15:11:50 +0000 https://divegearjp.com/olympic-gold-medalist-diver-tom-daley-uses-platform-to-advocate-for-lgbtq-rights-reuters/ By JULIE CARLE BG Independent News Olympic gold and bronze medalist and two-time world diving champion Tom Daley is a beacon for LGBTQ rights.

By JULIE CARLE

BG Independent News

Olympic gold and bronze medalist and two-time world diving champion Tom Daley is a beacon for LGBTQ rights.

He captivated and charmed a theater full of fans and onlookers at Bowling Green State University on Thursday night with tales of his 21-year diving career, reflections on his LGBTQ advocacy journey and even a whimper of a joke from father.

Adrenaline-seeker diver

Daley, who grew up in the UK, started diving aged seven and seven years later competed in the Beijing Olympics.

“There is something about diving that I found so captivating. I’m a bit of an adrenaline seeker. I love doing things that kinda freak me out, whether it’s roller coasters, theme parks, horror movies or whatever you shouldn’t like but love,” he said. declared.

The adrenaline rush is important on every dive because without it, complacency can sabotage a diver’s concentration. “Every time I step onto the (diving) platform I am terrified. Every time I got used to staying on the edge, something went wrong,” he said. “Without that hyper vigilance, I think you’d be making a lot more mistakes.”

Over time, Daley learned to stay focused by balancing fear and relaxation using visualization, breathing and meditation techniques. This balance is crucial due to the high stakes of the Olympics which comes down to six dives every four years, Daley said.

“I try to visualize a dive as if I was watching it on TV or sometimes as if I was actually diving. I try to do it a few times before I leave the platform, so I’m comfortable with it,” he explained.

He also recently added knitting to his relaxation process when there is time between dives. Knitting keeps him calm and has become his way of “getting out of my head and being calm”.

Daley recently launched Made With Love knitting kits to encourage others to experience the same kind of joy he found in knitting.

The Beginning of Advocacy and Beyond

Daley’s advocacy for gay rights began after his own exit in 2013. There had been speculation about his sexuality, but in 2013 he met and began a relationship with American screenwriter, director and producer Dustin Lance. Black.

He had a lot of people telling him he shouldn’t come out lest he lose his fan base and the sponsorships and income that helped support his family after his father’s untimely death in 2011. They also feared that he does not compete in the countries. where it was illegal to be gay.

He chose to come out through social media because it was the vehicle he used to connect with the most people. He created a YouTube video where he could say exactly what he wanted without having to answer any follow-up questions. “It was very empowering to take control of my own story,” he said.

He and Black married in 2017 and had a son through surrogacy in 2018.

At the 2018 Commonwealth Games, he won a gold medal in synchronized diving and realized that “in two-thirds of the Commonwealth it was illegal to be me. I thought of how lucky I am to live freely as a homosexual in his country. With this realization, her activism began to take hold.

Black, whose screenplay for the 2008 film, “Milk,” suggested Daley watch the film about gay San Francisco politician Harvey Milk to better understand queer history.

According to Daley, Black told him, “Maybe you should think a little about so many people who have come before you to understand the privilege you have now.”

“It’s not just about understanding history, it’s about appreciating what happened before and not being content with where we are now. If we don’t keep fighting and defending the rights we have today, they will be taken away from us,” Daley said.

In 2021, Daley was one of the few gay men to win a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics which were delayed for a year due to COVID-19. After the win, he sent a message directly to LGBTQ youth that they weren’t alone.

“During my live press conference, I said I was proud to be an Olympic champion who also happens to be a gay man. That should send a message to all you queers that you have a place in the sport and you can be an Olympic champion,” Daley said.

Over the past year, the elite diver has launched a campaign – “It’s Illegal to Be Me” – to defend the rights of gay people. His idea focused on countries that had anti-LGBTQ laws.

“I thought these countries should not have the privilege of hosting major international sports competitions,” he said. However, when he spoke to athletes from anti-LGBTQ countries, he found they feared being seen as the problem.

“With the Commonwealth, the reason these laws exist is because of the colonial era laws, so for a white Brit to come and say you can’t have the Commonwealth Games is another form of oppression,” admitted Daley.

He changed his position; instead of saying they can’t hold the event, he suggested they include the values ​​of the organization by allowing a pro-LGBTQ opening ceremony and pride flags throughout. event.

Daley was able to use his platform at the British Commonwealth Games in 2022. He was recognized as an elite athlete who was outspoken about nations with homo-negative and anti-LGBTQ laws. As millions watched the opening ceremony, he carried the Queen’s baton and behind him were six gay activists and athletes carrying pride flags.

“It was an incredibly powerful and visible promotion of who we are,” he said. “It was evident upon seeing this pride flag, which we probably take for granted most days, that it is a beacon of hope, safety, security and protection.”

Young judo hopeful Charlotte Jenman could get used to the feeling of knocking down the best in the world.

Dartford star Jenman enjoyed a breakthrough year with bronze at the European Under-18 Championships and a handful of medals on the European Cup circuit.

Charlotte Jenman has demonstrated all the right moves this year

And his superb 2022 was rewarded with a nomination for SportsAid’s annual One-to-Watch award, shortlisted in the top 10 from a group of 1,000 young athletes supported by the charity in 60 different sports.

The 17-year-old Jenman earned her championship honor the hard way, bouncing back to beat world No. 1 Michela Terranova after committing a foul in her semi-final.

She said: “I had a few training camps before the Europeans, my coach has good contacts and he made sure my preparation was ideal.

“I felt good going there and I knew I was going there to win a medal. I was really happy with my performance, it was one of my best of the year.

“I was really discouraged after the semi-final, it’s the worst way to lose. I always prefer to be dumped.

“I had the problem of coming back from a loss but I also had the problem of facing the best fighter in the world. She had won all the gold medals for the season.

“Looking at the video you can see I couldn’t believe I beat her. When I threw her they didn’t give points but when they did it was amazing .

“I think people now see me as that player to watch.

“It makes me happy that they see me like this and makes me want to keep working, so they are always watching over me.”

One of Jenman’s main strengths is the variety of his judo, also adept at ground wrestling techniques known as ne-waza and snapping throws.

She credits her father, Jack, for getting her started in the sport and first coach Andy Dodds for helping her believe she could make it to the top.

“Andy turned around and said to dad ‘she’s naturally gifted, she’s got it,'” Jenman said. “From that moment, people saw the potential in me.

“When you hear those words, it makes your day as a kid and knowing that they thought I could go far. The Olympics seem so far away, but you start to feel like it’s not impossible.

Jenman then played for Team GB at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Banska Bystrica, Slovakia. She relished her first taste of the five-ring circus.

She said, “It felt like the real thing, just for kids. It was brilliant.

“I made some brilliant friends there. The atmosphere was so different from what I am used to in judo competitions, we traveled and encouraged our teammates.

“I may not have come away with a medal, but I came away with good friends and just had the best experience.”

The One-to-Watch Award was launched in 2006 to highlight the outstanding achievements of Britain’s brightest young hopefuls, with Tom Daley, Hollie Arnold, Courtney Tulloch, Amber Hill, Morgan Lake and Alex Yee among the past winners.

Jenman, who received her support from SportsAid through the Backing The Best program this year, said: “Honestly, it feels great.

“There are some incredible athletes that are part of SportsAid and it’s great that my achievements this year have shined through.

“You see the Olympians and the medalists who have already won it – I’m not at that level yet, but it’s very inspiring, it’s unreal.”

The winner of SportsAid’s prestigious One-to-Watch Award will be revealed at the charity’s Celebrate the Next event, supported by Royal Bank of Canada, in London on Thursday November 17. Visit www.sportsaid.org.uk for more information.
