PH's McCammon dives into regional

FISHERS — Local swimmers took to the pool at Hamilton Southeastern on Saturday afternoon in the boys’ sectional finals, looking for a spot in next week’s state finals.

The host Royals swam away from the competition, easily outdistancing second-place Fishers 510-366.

Locally, Pendleton Heights came home fourth, Anderson was sixth, Liberty Christian was eighth and Elwood was ninth. Pendleton diver Dylan McCammon wound up second in the 1-meter diving competition, sewing up a spot in Tuesday’s diving regional at Fishers.

McCammon is the only local swimmer/diver to advance to the next round as the top four divers move on to the regional.

The day began with some controversy as Hamilton Southeastern’s win in the 200 yard medley relay was disqualified. According to officials, the team jumped in the pool for their “cool-off” before all swimmers had finished their competition. The DQ gave the spot to Fishers’ team of Luke Ingram, Jacob Reichert, Brad Jacobs and Joe Moser.

Anderson’s team of Hamilton Smith, Cody Gray, Tyler Davidson and Skyler Parrish finished fourth in the event.

In the next two races, Royals’ swimmers made up for the mistake and set the tone for the day. Luke Johnson set a sectional record of 1:41.01 in the 200-yard freestyle and Joseph Young followed that with another record in the 200-yard individual medley. Overall, Royal swimmers won 10 of the 11 remaining events after the DQ. The only race not won by Hamilton Southeastern was the 100-yard fly.

While McCammon was the only Arabian to advance in the competition, several Pendleton swimmers had solid performances.

Aric Fredericks was fourth in the 100 fly, and Tyler Parrish was third in the 100 free. Landis Hollingworth was fifth in the 100 yard backstroke, while senior Tyler Young finished eighth in a personal best time of 1:04.59. “I thought we did pretty well, I was happy with fourth place,” said Pendleton coach Jeff Maydak.

  • SPT - HB0726 - Mathis - Colts Camp day two 101 Mathis getting lighter workload as Colts get creative

    Robert Mathis is caught in an interesting predicament. The veteran outside linebacker finds himself preparing as hard as he can to play a football season that he will watch for the first month on television. That's the result of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it means fans will see less of the league's reigning sack champion on the practice field.

The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
