It's been 15 years since Shippensburg girls swimming could call itself a division champion. On Tuesday, the Greyhounds (9-0, 5-0) added that mark to their season, beating James Buchanan 94-75 on the road, sealing at least a share of the Mid-Penn Colonial, the teams first division title since 2002. The Greyhounds entered the day up by one game over Northern, with Boiling Springs 3-1. Shippensburg faces Big Spring on Jan. 31, needing a win to clinch the division outright. Makenna Morris picked up a pair of individual wins (200 free, 500 free) for Ship in Tuesday's win. And despite the Greyhounds winning just four events, depth helped pull out the win.
The boys, meanwhile, won 101-51, thanks in large part to Alby Lear's three wins (200 free, 500 free, 400 free relay). Kaiden Estep also picked up three wins (100 breast, 200 free relay, 200 medley relay).
Big Spring swept Gettysburg in non-conference action, the boys winning 98-78 and the girls 122-61. Jarod Anderson was his usual self, winning the 200 free and 100 fly well helping pick up wins in the 200 free relay and 200 medley relay. Erin Brandeburg helped lead the girls with wins in the 100 breast, 200 medley relay and 200 free relay.
