Ozaukee Aquatics’ Katie Drabot, known for taking on tough schedules at big meets, swam four times last night in Indianapolis and and came away with four wins.

Individually, Drabot won the 100 free first and then the 50 fly. Her time of 56.20 earned her the 100 free win by over a full second, while in the 50 fly, she posted a 27.35 to win by .35 over Kansas City Swim Academy’s Cailey Grunhard (27.70).

On relays, Drabot helped Ozaukee earn wins in the 200 medley and 200 free relays. In the medley, she split a quick 26.65 on the butterfly leg, while she anchored the 200 free relay with a 25.86. A big split in the medley relay came from Long Island Aquatic Club’s Margaret Aroesty, who popped a 31.87 on LIAC’s breaststroke leg.

Two other wins on the women’s side went to Isabelle Rongione of NCAP and Alex Sumner of Suburban Seahawks. The 16-year-old Rongione ruled the 800 free, posting an 8:48.26, while Sumner, also 16, swam a new best time to win the 200 back. Sumner popped a 2:11.18 for the 200 back win.

On the men’s side, Christian Ginieczki picked up two wins, one individual and one relay. In the 200 back, he nicked Northridge’s Spencer Lehman 2:03.70 to 2:03.79 for the win. Ginieczki swam the fly leg of Machine Aquatics’ 200 medley relay, splitting a 24.96.

The fastest fly split of the medley went to Timothy Bobo in 24.50. Bobo, who swims for Dads Club Swim Team, won a battle with Jack Dolan in the 100 free, 50.83 to 51.14, then finished third in a tough 50 fly. Joshua Withers (25.06) and Jacob Johnson (25.09) touched right ahead of Bobo’s 25.14.

At the end of the session, Bobo had the fastest 200 free relay split of the field with a 22.66, though it was Machine Aquatics (1:35.48) who earned the win. Thomas Hallock was the relay star for Machine Aquatics, splitting 23.0 twice on the end of their winning relays last night.
