|Saturday, our boys swim team traveled to Noblesville to compete in the sectional finals. It was a great day for our boys. Nearly everyone who was competing in the day had a season best swim.
We began the day with diving. Cody Cox, and Chris Kirkendall managed to both make the podium. Cody placed 4th and Chris 7th. With a fourth place finish Cody earned a spot in regional competition and will travel to Fishers tomorrow to try to earn a spot in the state meet.
Things were just as good on the swimming side. Glen Brown placed 3rd in both the 200 and 500 freestyle. He achieved a state cut time in both. He will be traveling to IUPUI Friday to compete in this years state meet.
Glen teamed up with Matt Duke, Connor Hill and Asa Sheffer for the 200 and 400 freestyle relays. They placed 4th in each relay where the guys swam out of their heads turning in times that set new school records in both events. The guys had already set the 200 freestyle relay a couple times this year but they lopped 2 seconds off their time. Their new record is 1:30.32. In the 400 freestyle relay the guys dropped 5 seconds from their season best and from out of nowhere broke a 30 year school old record. The old record 3:20.60, was set in the early 80's. It was held by B. Wyant, C. Fulk, S. Bowers and D. Troyer. The new record of 3:19.23. The surprise of the day was when we reviewed the splits we found that Glens official lead off time of :47.41 was faster then his brothers 100 freestyle school record. Therefore since it was a lead off swim he will be credited for a new school record in the 100 freestyle as well.
