Two weeks after the Carmel girls made history, winning their 29th consecutive Indiana High School State Championship, the boys are competing in Indianapolis at the IUPUI Natatorium for the state title.
On the first day of the meet, two meet records fell. Zionsville High School’s Kyle DeCoursey earned the top seed in the 50 freestyle with a new state record time of 20.08. The previous record was set in 2011 by Harrison Wagner at 20.11. Wagner went on to have a successful career at Princeton. This past weekend at the Ivy League Championships, he won the 50 freestyle with a time of 19.39.
The second record was broken by Bloomington South’s Ian Finnerty in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 53.23. The previous record was set by Indiana University swimmer Cody Taylor at 54.24 last year.
Several other swimmers are close to records and have a shot at breaking them tomorrow afternoon during the state finals. Full results can be found by clicking here.
