CANTON - Some things never change. For the 25th time since 1970, the Sl Xavier swimming team won the Ohio boys state swimming championship. The Bombers won three individual championships and three relays, totaling 316 points at C.T. Branin Natatorium. Upper Arlington had 194 points, followed by Wyomingat160. The championship was St. Xavier's fifth straight and the lOth overall for coach Jim Brower. "We lost nine swimmers from last year's team who are now swimming Division I in college," Brower said. "We told these kids prior to the season that they were going to do something special this season." Sl Xavier took a seemingly insurmountable 64-point lead into Saturday's final six events, and the Bombers didn't let up. Kit French claimed the 100 backstroke, and the Bombers also won the 200 and 400 freestyle relays. French, a sophomore, may have

been the most excited Bomber af· ter holding off Mariemont's Nick Thoman in his championship race. "He beat me at district and sectional. I knew it would be close," French said. "I went out strong and could see he was with me. I reached down for a little extra during the fi. nal25 (yards)." Kyle Ransom (200 individual medley) and Pete Carothers (100 butterfly) won individual state championships Friday and also competed on two of the winning relay teams. Scott Tanner finished sixth in the backstroke, and Ransom and French were fourth and. fifth respectively in the 100 freestyle. Other Bombers to win a medal were John Becker in the 500 freestyle (eighth) andJaredWagsterin the 100 breaststroke (fourth).

''We asked these kids to do a lot, maybe too much," Brower said. "But they did what they kept giving all season. It's a very close group and they love to race." Afterward, French already was looking to next season. "We lose five seniors off the state team," French said. ''This is only my second year, but we'll go after it again. We didn't come in thinking we would win, because Upper Arlington's times in the district were outstanding." Brower was complimentary of Upper Arlington and Wyoming. "For a school Wyoming's size, third place is a great accomplishment," Brower said. "Upper Arlington also turned in a great effort and I congratulate them on an excellent state meel" Three other area teams have

won state championships in the 76year history of the meet Walnut Hills (1950, '55), Hughes (1930) and Western Hills (1935). Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy junior Kevin Nead took more than four seconds off his qualifying time and finished in third place in the 500 freestyle. The event was won by John Kevin Koehler of Springfield Catholic Central, and Steve Roof of Canton Central Catholic was second. "At the 450 (yard) mark, I thought I could win it," Nead said. "I knew I had to stay close and I went in knowing I had to watch for Roof and Koehler. "I like to win, but I'm training for the (YMCA) nationals." See results, C11

Myers makes Ursuline state threat again But Lions lost six qualifiers to state meet By Dave Schutte Enquirer contributor

Whlch team will dominate Cincinnati girls swimming and go on to challP-nge for the Division I state championship isn't the question. The question is just how dominant coach Tim Beerman's Ursuline team could be on its march to the state meet. Ursuline, which is going for its fourth consecutive state title and fifth in the past six years, returns¡ a great deal of talent. But the Lions lost six state qualifiers to graduation, which will be difficult to overcome. 'YVe have our work cut out for us," Beennan said. "Centerville has everybody back except one swimmer and has several outstanding freshmen. They could win four state championships." Ursuline again will be built around senior Whitney Myers. Myers was the 2002 State Swimmer of the Year and the LaRosa's Female Athlete of the Year. In three years swimming for Ursuline, Myers has won a school-record six individual state championships and four on winning relay teams. The Lions return six other state qualifiers besides Myers- Margy Keefe, Abby Cooper, Tiffany Lipari, Emily Howell, Jenny Hagen and

Meaghan Stakelin. Beennan said he has another strong freshman class, particularly divers Jennifer Funch and Aimee Sundberg. This array of talent should enable Beennan to fonn some outstanding relay teams. The Lions are the defending 200 freestyle and 200 medley relay state champions. 'The season hinges on getting swimmers to compete at this level," Beennan said. "We have some swimmers who were close last year and could do it" Upper Arlington also will field a strong team, and the Cleveland area could produce challengers. If Ursuline falters locally, look for St Ursula to challenge. Coach Jamie Marcott's Bulldogs will be built around defending 500 freestyle state champion Katie Ball. Marcott also expects big contributions from Caroline Keating, Emily Barnes, Sarah Schneiber and Shannon Grace. Anderson, Oak Hills and Sycamore are three other teams that should be strong. Anderson returns the defending 200 individual medley state champion in Megan Tomes. Oak Hills will also be strong behind Nicole Kroeger, a returning state qualifier in the 200 freestyle, and Katie Schnur, a returning state qualifier in the 50 free. Sycamore coach Tim Sui-

Katie Ball of St. Ursula (left) and Megan Tomes of Anderson are two of the Cincinnati area's top returning swimmers. Ball is the defending 500 freestyle state champion; Tomes is the defending champion in the 200 individual medley.

livan returns state qualifiers Gina Sylvester (diving), Lauren Bernstein (100 butterfly, 100 backstroke) and Courtney Siemer (100 freestyle). In Division II, Gates Mills Hawken is expected to dominate at state. The top Cincinnati teams are expected to be Indian Hill, Wyoming and Madeira. Indian Hill appears to have the advantage in Cincinnati based on the return of three divers, senior Emily Hunter, the Division II staterecord holder and threetime champion, and Brittany Hill and Ann Kenny. Other top Indian Hill returnees are Betsy Carey, Jackie Rodriguez, Claire Ballard and Brittany Hill. Madeira returns Jennifer Miller, Natalie Orjuela, Lindsay Bockstiegel and Sarah Murphy. "We could surprise a few people," Wyoming coach Teresa Wade said. 'The freshman girls are strong, which gives up depth." The season begins this week and continues through late February when the state championships will be held in Canton.

Big losses, big potential for St. Xavier Carothers key in pursuit of 25th state title By Dave Schutte Enqttirer contribtttor

St. Xavier's dominance in swimming should continue this season, not only in Cincinnati but also statewide. The Bombers boast a wealth of talent despite losing nine swimmers from last season who are competing at Division I colleges. Jim Brower will reload with an eye toward winning a record 25th state championship dating to 1970. "Five (of the swimmers lost) were All-Americans," Brower said. Those would be David Janszen, Kurt Hardesty, John Stoneburner, David Habel and Chris Barnes. The Bombers return Kyle Ransom (state finalist in the' 200 and 500 freestyles), Scott Tanner (state finalist in the 100 butterfly

and state qualifier in the 100 backstroke), Rich Goettke (state qualifier in the 50 free) and Joe Cramer (state qualifier in the 500 free). Also back are two key juniors, defending 100 butterfly state champion Pete Carothers and 500 free state qualifier John Becker. Sophomores Kit French (state finalist in the 100 butterfly) and Jared Wagster (state qualifier in the 100 breaststroke) add depth. "As always, we expect a host of others to step up and contribute," Brower said. 'The top competition will come from Wyoming and perennial powers Sycamore and Anderson." Wyoming will be led by its senior "Fab Four" of Dan Shrider, Phillip Roebuck, Jonathan Hinkel and Ryan Koscianski, along with junior Michael Byrnes. Wyoming coach Teresa Wade is optimistic. "We're hoping this is the school's best swimming team," Wade said. "We lost Mark Giardina (graduated), which may make it hard to field strong relay teams."

Returning state qualifers

The Cincinnati Enquirer/GLENN HARTONG

St. X's Peter Carothers is the defending state champion in the 109 butterfly aod a finalist in the 200 freestyle.

Wade is looking for several freshmen to contribute, including David Henkel. 'We don't have the depth to challenge St. X," Wade said. "But it could be interesting when we swim them (Jan. 9)." Another team to watch is Sycamore with Ryan Klasmeier, Heath Tameris, Greg Bieler, Joey Krone and Robert Traux. Other individual swimmers to watch include Kevin Nead (Cincinnati Hills

Christian Academy), Nick Thoman ¡ (Mariemont), Sean Davis (Anderson), Nick Ivey (Fairfield), Justin Marcy (Fairfield) and Rob Magnus (Moeller). Only a junior, Nead is a threat to win the 200 and 500 freestyle state championships or the 200 individual medley, an event in which he finished fifth last season. The state swimming and diving championships will be Feb. 20-22 at C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton.

'We had such great team chemistry last season and all the girls cared about each other," Griffith said. "The five returning girls want it to be that way again this season, and that's the goal." Turpin returns a strong team, but 28-year coach Gail Maundrell is a realist 'There are about 12 clubs in Southwestern Ohio, but they don't encourage the kids to perform for the high school teams," Maundrell said. Maundrell will rely on Amanda Lehr, Krystel Burger, Stephanie Luehrman, Katie Chalk and Danna Deans, along with many untested sophomores and freshmen. The outlook at Sycamore is

bright, thanks to the combination of veterans Christina Terilli and Stacy Meyer with Caitlin Pikna, a promising freshman. Anderson was hit hard by graduation, and co-coaches Jodi Stewart and Stacey Bailey will count on seniors Alexis Coy and Kelsey Ericksen. Juniors Michelle Bieszcazk, Tori Brokamp, Annie Burke and Carolyn Martin are expected to contribute. Ashley Hunt, a transfer from Mariemont, will anchor coach Steve Conner's 18member Cincinnati Country Day team.

Relay surprise powers St. Xavier By Dave Schutte Enquirer contributor

CANTON - The St Xavier Bombers took a major step toward winning a record 25th state boys swimming championship Friday at C.T. Branin Natatorium. Led by the state-championship efforts of Pete Carothers and Kyle Ransom, the Bombers opened a 64point lead over Upper Arlington with six events remaining today. 'The guys came to the pool this morning ready to go," St Xavier coach Jim Brower said. "But the key tonight was winning the 200 medley relay, which set the tone for the night." Although the Bombers relay team of Kit French, Jared Wagster, Scott Tanner and Rich Goettke had only the fourth-fastest district qualifying time (1:37 .87), the swimmers turned it on in the state finals. A pair of sophomores, French

and Wagster, put St Xinto the lead in the backstroke and breaststroke, with Tanner taking over in the butterfly and Goettke swimming the freestyle leg. , "We knew Upper Arlington had a much faster qualifying time (1:34.87)," French said. "I wanted to go out fast and put us in the lead. Tills is my first gold medal and it feels great." The first disappointment of the

evening for St. X came in the next race, the 100 freestyle. Although the fastest qualifier, Carothers finished third in 1:40.35, a slower time (1:40.25) than in the morning qualifying race. But Carothers followed about 60 miri.utes later and successfully defended his 100 butterfly state championship. He swam the event in 49.17, fractions better than last year's 49.41.

"I'm happy with my time tonight, but we have to come back tomorrow and do it again," Carothers said. Carothers will swim on the Bombers' 200 and 400 freestyle relays teams tonight Sandwiched between Carothers' disappointment and success was Kyle Ransom's state championship , in the 200 individual medley. . Trailing after the butterfly, Ramson closed the gap on the br_east~ stroke and won going away,_ swimming the final 50 freestyle in 26.35. The state individual championship was Ransom's first and sixth over all (five relays). WYOMING: Junior Phillip Roebucktookfourth in the 100 butterfly in 51.00. He will swim on the Cowboys' 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams tonight. Recently Roebuck learned he had scored a perfect 1,600 on the SAT.

Dunn finding form at plate

NATIONAL LEAGUE

.His 1-for-3 game reason for optimism By John Fay IIIII Kevin Kely The Cincinnati Enquirer

It won't go down as one of Adam Dunn's better games, but it was a step in the right direction. Dunn got his first hit of the season Thursday- a single up the middle- and went 1-for-3 with a hit-bypitch in the Reds' 7-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. "His approaches were better all day," Reds manager Bob Boone said. "I was really pleased with his at-bat against (Scott) Sauerbeck." Sauerbeck, a lefty specialist from Northwest High and Miami University, ·struck out Dunn on three pitches Wednesday night. Thursday in the ninth, Dunn was able to get the count to 2-2 and foul two pitches before flying out. "He left me one pitch to hit," Dunn said. "You've got to hit it." Late in spring training, Dunn slipped back into the funk he was

An increase of 6,605 in the average attendance over the entire season would put the Reds' average at 29,802. That figures out to 2.4 million for the year, which wouldn't even be among the top five attendance totals in team history. GUILLEN REPORTS: Jose Guillen, an outfielder who failed to make the Reds out of spring training, has reported to Triple-A Louisville. Guillen, 26, did not report immediately after being re-assigned to the minor-league camp. He hit .248 with four home runs and 16 RBI in 31 games with the Reds last year. .CD AVAILABLE: The Blessid Union of Souls CD with the song "Play Ball" will be available to Great American Ball Park gift shops beginning today. "Play Ball" is a tribute to Reds history. The song and the accompanying video are being played during games at the ballpark.

mired ih during the second half of last season. He had one hit in his last 14 exhibition at-bats. He was 0-for-8 with three strikes and one hard-hit ball in the Reds' first two regular-season games. "I'm trying to focus and stay up the middle," Dunn said. Dunn, a 23-year-old left fielder, had it going early in spring. His power numbers - five home runs, 16 RBI in 24 games- were respectable. That had the Reds convinced he was returning to 2002 pre-All-Star Game form, when he hit .300 with 17 homers and 54 RBL But the last few weeks, he has looked more like the guy who hit .190 with nine home runs and 17 RBI 'after the All-Star Game. MR. MANICURE: To offset the effects of a painful blister that sometimes develops on his right index finger, Reds starter Danny Graves plans to visit a manicurist for an un-

conventional cure. "I've done it many times," said Graves, who makes his first regular-season start today, against the Cubs. "I'm in touch with my feminine side." All kidding aside, Graves wants to have two fake fingernails applied to his right index and middle fin. gers for preventative purposes. "If I have (my nails) too short, throwing two-seamers off the laces, it causes the blister to come up," Graves said. "If I have them too long, then my nails crack. "So I've got to find a happy medium. With a fake nail, ifs thick and hard, so you're safe either way." AlTENDANCE NOli: The Reds drew 91,317 for the three-game series to open Great American Ball Park. For the opening series at Cinergy Field last year, they drew 78,106. Thafs an increase of 13,211. Almost all the increase was over the second and third dates; Opening Day numbers were virtually the same.

game with a 1-2-3 inning and the Reds got him a 1-0 lead in the first. He gave that back in the second, then let the game get away from him in the third. "He lost his sinker," Reds manager Bob Boone said. "Everything straightened up on him." The big blow of the four-run third was Reggie Sanders' threerun homer. "It was about thigh-high Bl)d out over the plate," Anderson said-. "With two people on, I want a strike." Sean Casey hit his first homer of the year-a two-run shot in the third - to make it 5-3. But as was the case the whole series, the Pirates answered. They scored two runs in the fifth, the second coming on Sanders' second home run. That made Aaron Boone's tworun shot in the seventh too little, too late. Ifsthefirsttirne the Pirates have swept three from the Reds in Cincinnati since August 1998. The Reds last started a season 0-3 in 1999. They ended up winning 96 games that year. The bad start, coupled with the bad finish to spring training, has fans in an uproar. Is manager Bob Boone concerned? "It doesn't matter," he said. ''We've got to play the next one and the next one after that. It doesn't matter if I'm concerned." The Pirates were one of the teams the Reds handled pretty well last year, taking 11 of 18 games. But Pittsburgh looks like a different and better club. Sanders, a late signee for $1 million, is a big part of that.

Looks for No. 500

Barry Larkin understands what the Reds are trying to do. "I realize that Felipe (Lopez) is the future," Larkin said. "They have to keep him sharp.... I just hope when he plays it doesn't mean I'm not playing. I still consider myself an everyday player." Lopez got his first start of the year Thursday - at shortstop which left Larkin out of the ·lineup. Larkin was not happy about it. "I'd rather be playing," he said. "But I'm not." Larkin did enter as part of a double switch in the seventh inning and went 0-for-2. That he turns 39 in three weeks, is coming off a year in which he hit .245 and has a history of injuries makes Larkin an ideal candidate for rest But Larkin was coming off a two-hit game Wednesday and hit .302 in spring training - and the Reds have been struggling to score runs. Lopez's natural posi· tion is shortstop, but he also can play second or thiJ:d base. Larkin played a game in the outfield in spring training. So the Reds could have sat someone else. Second baseman Aaron Boone, third baseman Brandon Larson and left fielder Adam Dunn all came out of spring training struggling. Boone and Larson each had one hit in the first two games.

But Cincinnati Marlihs coach Chris Wolford says three-time . defending state champion Ursuline, coached . by Tim Beerman, should not be counted out this weekend at Branin Natatorium in Canton. "Ursuline has the experi' enceofwinningastatechampionship, which meruis a lot," Wolford said. "UpperArlington has a team full of experienced .seniors who.know this is their ·last chance. Centerville is wellcoached with a lot of talent." Wolford assessed the Division I meet by event and also predicted who might fare well in Division II. Finals in both elivisions begin at 6 p.m. today and continue at 6 p.m. Saturday.

200 medley relay: AIthough Ursuline has the second-fastest qualifying time to Upper Arlington, the edge goes to the Uons because of senior Whitney Myers, who didn't swim well at the dishict meet. ''Whitney. is a big-!fleet performer," Wolford said. "She

comes frlfough under pressure and will be the difference in this relay." 200 Jreestyle: This should be one of the closest races of the meet, with eight swinuners considered contenders. Twotime defending state champion Myers has the edge, but a sixth-pla•:e finish atthe district created mme doubt. 200 individual medley: Defending state champion Megan Tomes of Anderson is the favorite but could be challenged by Centerville freshman Jenny Forster. ''I saw Jenny at the U.S. Open destroy Olympian Kristy Kowal during the lastJOO of the 400 lM," Wolford said. ''That makes it hard to count her out of any race." 50 freestyle: Katie Carroll ofToledo Notre Dame should win. Ursuline's Tiffany Upari is the best local hope. "Katie can swim in almost any event in the state lineup," Wolford said. 'The fact that she chose the 50 (freestyle) shows that's where her corifidence lies." 100 butterfly: Susan Johnson of Toledo Notre Dame is ·the top ~.eed, but again Myers will be a threat. 100 freestyle: Anderson's Tornes will be challenged by Toledo Notre Dame's ·Carroll and Oak Hills' Nicole Kroeger. 500freestyle: Ursulinesenior Mru·gy Keefe, who trains With the Anderson Barracudas, appears to have the advantage over defending state champion and Banacudas teammate Katie Ball of St. Ursula. "Over the last couple of months watching ·.Margy

(Keefe), it is evident that she has gained strength and confidence in every race," Wolford said. 200 :freestyle relay: Ursuline has the fastest qualifying time, five-tenths of a second ahead ofUpper Arlington. Sycamore should be the next-best Cincinnati hope. 100 backstroke: It should be a battlebetween Elaine Ferritto of Upper Arlington and Centerville's Erin Forster. Sycamore's Lauren Bernstein has the best local qualifying time. 100 breaststroke: This will be a hotly contested race between four Cincinnatians Trffany Clay (Mount Notre Dame), Shannon Grace (St. Ursula), Abby Cooper (Ursuline) and Upari (Ursuline). ''This race and the 200 freestyle are Ursuline's strongest," Wolford said. ''It will be important .for Ursuline to score well mthiseventifthebattleforfirst place is close." 400 ·:freestyle relay: Upper Arlington was two seconds faster than Centerville and four seconds better than Ursuline. "I picked Ursuline in this race for the same reason as the 200 freestyle," Wolford said. ''That is because they have a group of good sprinters."

Division II There seems little doubt that four-time defending state champion.GatesMillsHawken will win a fifth consecutive time. Hawken won the first cham~ pionship competing in Division I (1999) and the last three in Division II. "No team will be dose 'to

Hawken," Wolford said. ''They will win the three relays and possibly five or six individual events~"

In Wolford's opinion, Mariemont freshman Ashlee Edgell, who. swims for the Marlins, could win the 200 individual medley. "Ashlee wasn't shaved or tapemd for the district," Wolford said, "She has the third-fastest time and will be ready this weei.;;:end to challenge for the state championship." hl the 100 butterfly, Wolford looks for Kacey Cru-penter from Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy to challenge Jessica Rothenberg from Beachwood. Carpenter also is favored to win the 100 backstroke. "If Kacey is able to get an early lead in the backstroke, she should have no problems finishing first," Wolford said~ Although Lindsay Bockstiegel didn't repeat as district champion in the 100 and 200 freestyle, Wolford said the Madeim senior will be rested and ready to compete. "Undsay set the district record in both events last year when she was shaved and tapered," Wolford said. ''Last week she wasn't rested. She's one of the best racers I've ever ~~ah~:,~· and if it's close, I'd bet Madeira finished second last year behind Hawken, and Wolford predicted the Amazons will contend again if the three relays perform up to expectations. . Indian Hill also could finish runner-up.
