Barracudas coast to a win over Golden Valley

Louisburg’s Claire Brown won five events in the 11-12 girls division Saturday against the Golden Valley Swim Club at the Louisburg Aquatic Center. The Barracudas rolled to a 367-157 victory.

Barracudas breeze past Woodson in season opener

Louisburg’s Casey Carpenter-Ross swims the freestyle Saturday during the Barracudas’ home opener against Woodson. Carpenter-Ross won five events to help lead the Barracudas to an easy win over Woodson.

 

The last time the Louisburg Barracudas lost a swim meet was in 2009, and after Saturday’s season opener, that streak is still intact.

Louisburg hosted the Woodson Sharks out of Raytown, Mo., at the Louisburg Aquatic Center and the Barracudas coasted to a 354-145 victory. It was a good start for the Barracudas as they begin their quest for a 10th consecutive South Suburban Swim League championship.

The Barracudas had a pair of swimmers who garnered five first place ribbons Saturday and three more that ended with four top finishes.

Madelyn Prettyman (15-and-over girls) and Casey Carpenter-Ross (9-10 boys) each won five events on the day, while Ella Dischinger (9-10 girls), Emma Prettyman (13-14 girls) and Remington Rice (13-14 boys) captured four first-place ribbons.

Madelyn won the 50-meter butterfly in 30.39 seconds, the 50 backstroke in 32.61 and the 200 individual medley in 2 minutes and 35.96 seconds. Kadisyn Kircher, Kaitlyn Lewer and Isabelle Holtzen joined Madelyn to win the 200 medley relay with a time of 2:22.70 and the 200 freestyle relay in 2:13.

Carpenter-Ross also won three individual races as he took first in the 50 freestyle (39.40), 50 backstroke (45.91) and 100 individual medley (1:41). He also teamed up with Conor Aadland, Andrew Jamison and Colin Brown to win the 100 medley relay (1:28) and 100 freestyle relay (1:20).

Dischinger joined Ella Bockelman, Cricket McIntire and Jesse Faulkner to win the 100 medley relay (1:35) for the 9-10 girls and later teamed up with Bockelman, McIntire and Shylah Dowell to win the 100 freestyle relay (1:25). Dischinger also won the 50 freestyle (39.61) and 100 individual medley (1:55).

Ella Dischinger swims the breaststroke Saturday in the Barracudas’ home opener and won four events in the 9-10 girls division.

Emma Prettyman captured three individual titles in the 50 freestyle (33.40), 50 butterfly (36.81) and 200 individual medley (3:18) to lead the 13-14 girls. Dana Mattison, Delanie Tally and Mable Graham later joined Emma to win the 200 freestyle relay (2:36).

On the boys side, Rice led the 13-14 boys as he won the 50 freestyle (28.77) and 50 backstroke (38.66). Rice also teamed up with Cole Brown, Drake Burdine and Cooper Hipp to win the 200 medley relay (2:40) and 200 freestyle relay (2:19).

Louisburg will try and make it two wins in a row this Saturday when it hosts the Golden Valley Swim Club from Clinton, Mo.

Prettyman signs to swim for Missouri State

Louisburg High School senior Maddie Prettyman’s love for swimming led her to a spot on a college roster as she signed to swim for Missouri State on Nov. 10. 

 

Maddie Prettyman loves the water.

In fact, there are times where the Louisburg High School senior considers it her second home. Prettyman has lived in the water for most of her young life and it has led to some big accomplishments.

However, there were none bigger than what happened on Nov. 10.

In front of family and friends at LHS, Prettyman signed her letter of intent to swim at Missouri State University – fulfilling a dream that has been several years in the making.

“I am super excited to be going to Missouri State,” Prettyman said. “To finally be signing with the college that I have always wanted to go to is truly amazing. I have always wanted to swim in college and for the last four years I have wanted to go to college there.”

It has been a different route for Prettyman to achieve her college dreams. Although most swimmers who go to college have an opportunity to swim for their high school, she didn’t haven’t that option with Louisburg not offering a program.

Prettyman currently swims for Empire KC, a club based in Lee’s Summit, Mo., and has competed with different teams throughout her young life.

“It has been really interesting for me to only be swimming with my club team year-round,” she said. “The first question I get asked by a college coach is about my high school team. I then have to tell them that Louisburg doesn’t have a swim team so I was never able to compete at a state meet. Almost everyone on my team has a high school season so I was one of the few people that stayed swimming club for the entire year.”

Prettyman may have not had an opportunity to swim for LHS, but she did begin her journey with the Louisburg Barracudas – a summer league team – when she began swimming at 7-years-old. She still swims at times with the Barracudas over the summer, but it was there where she took to the sport.

“I began my love of swimming when I started on the Louisburg Barracudas when I was 7,” Prettyman said “That summer, and the next, really made me realize that swimming was the best sport for me. It is both a team sport and an individual sport in the sense of the entire team winning meets, while it is on you to swim your best and get your best times. I love pushing myself to improve both in meets and during practice, and that is really what attracted the thought of swimming year round to me.

“My summer league coach, Kyle Farrington, was the person who actually suggested that I go and start to swim club during the winters and I will be forever grateful for that suggestion he made because since I was 8, it became my entire life. The social aspect and the intensity really just made me want to be able to swim all year.”

That move to the club level eventually led to a scholarship with a Division I program in Missouri State, and a Bears team that has had success in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Bears have won 13 women’s conference championships, including last year where Missouri State won in an 832-point landslide victory under head coach Dave Collins. Under Collins, the Bears took home seven individual conference titles and had the MVC Swimmer of the Year on their roster

Success, and the Bears coaching staff, is what made it an easy choice for Prettyman.

“I immediately loved the program as soon as I got there,” Prettyman said. “David Collins and Chelsea Dirks-Ham (Missouri State assistant) are the coaches and they run a wonderful team. As soon as I got there, the entire team welcomed me and they all seemed to be really close friends.”

When Prettyman reports to Missouri State next season, she is planning on swimming the butterfly and backstroke – two of her most successful events.

However, she also knows it will take a lot of hard work and practice time to get where she wants to go.

“My goals for my college career include making top 16 at conference in the 100 butterfly and the 100 backstroke,” Prettyman said. “This is a lofty goal, but I believe that with the hard work and the support of my coaches, it is attainable.”




Barracudas win ninth consecutive league title

Louisburg’s Christopher Tyson swims the breaststroke for the Barracudas on Saturday at the South Suburban Swim League meet in Clinton, Mo. The Barracudas won their ninth straight league title as they racked up 618 points on the day.

 

CLINTON, Mo. – For the last eight seasons, the Louisburg Barracuda swim team has ended its year with a South Suburban Swim League title.

The Barracudas weren’t about to let No. 9 slip away from them.

Louisburg won its ninth consecutive title Saturday as it racked up 618 points to win the SSSL meet in Clinton, Mo. The Barracudas won the meet by an overwhelming margin as runner-up Harrisonville (Mo.) finished with 376 points.

Several individual swimmers also wrapped up a special season as they left the league meet with some hardware of their own.

Ashley Branine (9-10 girls) and Emma Prettyman (11-12 girls) each finished in first place in the high-point standings, while the Barracudas had seven other swimmers finish in the top three.

Casey Carpenter-Ross (8-and-under boys), Josiah McCaskill (9-10 boys), Remington Rice (13-14 boys) and Kadisyn Kircher (15-and-over girls) each finished runner-up in their respective divisions. Claire Brown (11-12 girls), Mable Graham (13-14 girls) and Cole Brown (13-14 boys) took third overall in the high-point standings.

Barracudas defeat Clinton in season opener

Emma Prettyman won five events for the Louisburg Barracudas last Saturday in Clinton, Mo., as the Barracudas defeated Golden Valley 276-187 in their season opener. 

 

CLINTON, Mo. – It may be a different year, but it was the same result for the Louisburg Barracuda swim team Saturday in Clinton, Mo.

Louisburg defeated the Golden Valley Swim Club, 276-187, in its season opener and continued its dominance of the South Suburban Swim League. The Barracudas haven’t lost a regular season meet since 2009, along with winning eight consecutive league titles.

The Barracudas had three swimmers win five first-place ribbons and two more that earned four first-place honors as well.

Avery Graham (15-and-over) and Emma Prettyman (11-12) led the girls side with five victories and Remington Rice (13-14) was the lone boy to have a perfect day. Ashley Branine (9-10) and Claire Brown (11-12) each won four events.

Graham won three individual races, including the 50-meter freestyle in 33.84 seconds, the 50 butterfly in 35.69 and 50 backstroke in 42.34.

She also got some help in her two relay events. Graham joined Anna Danciak, Kaitlyn Lewer and Melia Rice to win the 200-meter medley relay in 3 minutes and 1 second and the same team ended the meet with a victory in the 200 freestyle relay in 2:39.

Prettyman did much of the same in the 11-12 girls division. Prettyman won the 50 freestyle (36.90), 50 butterfly (38.53) and 200 individual medley (3:32).

In her relay events, Prettyman teamed up with Brown, Tehya Harvey and Abby Bradley to win the 200 freestyle relay (2:49) and 200 medley relay (3:05). Brown also won a pair of individual events of her own as she finished first in the 50 breaststroke (49.72) and 50 backstroke (45.74).

Rice also helped win a pair of relay races on the boys side. Rice joined Cole Brown, Jake Danciak and Drake Burdine to capture the 200 medley relay (3:41) and later teamed up with Cole, Burdine and William Goode to win the 200 freestyle relay (2:37).

In between those two races, Rice went on to finish first in the 50 freestyle (31.56), 50 butterfly (40.86) and 50 backstroke (47.43).

Branine also had a big day for the 9-10 girls as she took home four first-place ribbons.  She won the 50 freestyle (42.62) and 50 breaststroke (57.78).

She later helped Jesse Faulkner, Hannah Farrington and Lola Dubas win the 100 medley relay (1:46) and joined Faulkner, Madeline Hughes and Janie Harth to win the 100 freestyle relay (1:51).

GR8! Barracudas win eighth-straight league title

Sabra Brueggen swims the butterfly during the South Suburban Swim League finals meet Saturday in Harrisonville, Mo. Brueggen was named the high-point champion for the 9-to 10-year-old age division and won five first-place ribbons.


HARRISONVILLE, Mo. – Make it eight in a row.

The Louisburg Barracudas swim team continued its dominance of the South Suburban Swim League on Saturday when it captured its eighth-consecutive league title in convincing fashion during the SSSL finals meet in Harrisonville, Mo. The Barracudas have also not lost a meet since 2009 and have won 43 in a row.

Louisburg racked up 633 team points and ran away from the rest of the field, including runner-up Harrisonville, which had 411 points. Woodson came in third with 385.

“Winning another title validates all of the hard work that the kids put in on a daily basis, but winning a league title isn’t the ultimate goal,” Louisburg coach Kyle Farrington said. “I want all of our swimmers to enjoy the sport first, learn technique next and learn to race hard. If we can do all of those things, titles will take care of themselves.

“It is pretty amazing that we have managed to amass so many wins in a row and maintain such a large team in such a small town. We have so much community support in a town that has proven that they love to swim. I am not sure why it has happened here in Louisburg, but we are almost the smallest town in the league and we have been the largest team for the last seven years.  That doesn’t happen without amazing support and buy-in from the community.”

The Barracudas also finished with several high-point winners as 13 swimmers received trophies following the meet.

Jesse Faulkner (8-and-under girls) Sabra Brueggen (9-10 girls), Emma Prettyman (11-12 girls) and Trae Johnsen (15-and-over boys) led the way as each were crowned league high-point champions.

Lola Dubas (8-U girls), Connor Aadland (8-U boys), Brayton Brueggen (11-12 boys) and Alex Prettyman (15-and-over boys) finished runner-up in their respective class. Claire Brown (9-10), Josiah McCaskill (9-10 boys), Mable Graham (11-12 girls), Sydney Keaton (13-14 girls) and Madelyn Prettyman (15-and-over girls) also left with a trophy as each took third in the high-point standings.

Sabra Brueggen experienced the most success for Louisburg as she won five league titles, including three individual events. Sabra won 50-yard butterfly in 37.94 seconds, the 50 backstroke in 37.64 and 100 individual medley in 1 minute and 25 seconds.

She also joined Ashley Branine, Brown and Megan Quinn to win the 100 medley relay (1:21) and 100 freestyle style relay (1:14). Brown also won a league crown in the 50 breaststroke (46.97).

Faulkner also had a big day as she helped Kasi Tune, Rachel Minor and Cricket McIntire to a win in the 100 medley relay (1:57), and also joined Dubas, Shylah Dowell and McIntire to victory in the 100 freestyle relay (1:44). Individually, she won a league crown in the 25 butterfly (31.27) and 25 backstroke (26.35).

Emma Prettyman won three events as she, along with Graham, Mary Grace McElyea and Delanie Tally, took first in the 200 medley relay (2:26). Emma also won a league title in 50 butterfly (34.25) and 200 individual medley (2:56).

Keaton won three events as well as she, Elizabeth Kratochvil, Avery Graham and Alayna Baker took first in the 200 medley relay (2:21) and 200 freestyle relay (2:03). Keaton also came in first in the 50 freestyle (29.80).

McCaskill had a big day for the boys. He won league titles in the 50 freestyle (34.58) and 50 breaststroke (48.50). He later helped William Goode, Josh Holtzen and Jay McCaskill to victory in the 100 freestyle relay (1:11).

It was another successful season for the Barracudas, but one Kyle Farrington, assistant coach Aimee Farrington and the other swimmers don’t take for granted. The Barracuda coaching staff will also have a different look next season as Aimee has decided to step down after more than a decade with the program.

“Aimee and I have been lucky to be a part of this team and community for the last 11 years,” Kyle said. “We feel blessed that we have been surrounded by such great swimmers, parents and board members for so long. Many coaches dream of having it as good as we have.”

One streak is intact for another year.

The Louisburg Barracudas, which haven’t lost a regular season meet since 2009, continued that trend Saturday as the Barracudas defeated the Woodson Sharks 313-220 at the Louisburg Aquatic Center.

Louisburg finished the regular season with a 4-0 record as it heads into the South Suburban League finals this coming Saturday in Harrisonville, Mo.

The Barracudas faced their stiffest competition of the season, but still got big performances from several swimmers, including Madelyn Prettyman. Prettyman dominated the 15-and-over girls division as she won five blue ribbons, including three individual victories.

Prettyman won the 50-meter freestyle in 29.87 seconds, the 50 butterfly in 31.31 and the 50 backstroke in 33.19 seconds. She also joined Teagan Myers, Kaitlyn Lewer and Rachel McElyea to take first in the 200 medley relay in 2:48, while Prettyman, Myers, Lewer and Aye won the 200 freestyle relay in 2:44.

Sydney Keaton (13-14) and Sabra Brueggen (9-10) each captured four events to end the meet strong.

Louisburg's Sabra Brueggen won four events last Saturday.

Keaton helped Elizabeth Kratochvil, Avery Graham and Alayna Baker to victories in the 200 medley relay (2:35) and 200 freestyle relay (2:20). Keaton also won a pair of individual races in the 50 breaststroke (44.53) and 50 backstroke (38.78).

Brueggen also won two events as she finished first in the 50 backstroke (42.88) and 100 individual medley (1 minute and 35 seconds). She also teamed with Ashley Branine, Claire Brown and Megan Quinn for victories in the 100 medley (1:31) and 100 freestyle relay (1:22)

Louisburg also had nine swimmers win three events.

Jesse Faulkner (8-and-under), Cricket McIntire (8-U), Claire Brown (9-10), Elizabeth Kratochvil (13-14), Avery Graham (13-14) and Kaitlyn Lewer (15-and-over) each captured three first-place ribbons for the girls. Brayton Brueggen (11-12), Josiah McCaskill (9-10) and Casey Carpenter-Ross (8-U) also won three events for the boys.

The Barracudas will look to continue another streak Saturday in Harrisonville as Louisburg goes for its eighth straight league crown. The meet is set to begin at 8 a.m.
