Arabians advance 2 from sectional

Kisinger, McCammon move on

FISHERS, Ind. — Advancing to the next round and giving yourself a chance for better things is the goal in most sports. That’s just what happened in the Fishers Swimming and Diving Sectional Saturday.

Pendleton Heights’ senior swimmer Logan Kisinger and freshman diver Dylan McCammon are moving to the next round of competition after strong sectional performances.

In the swimming events, advancement to the state meet next Saturday at the Indiana Natatorium is accomplished by finishing first or beating the state cut time. Kisinger finished third in the 50-yard freestyle, but is advancing to the state by recording a 21.64 time, beating the state cut time of 21.71 seconds.

The top four divers advance to Tuesday’s regional, and McCammon didn’t leave anything to chance by scoring a 474 to finish in second place and securing his spot in the regional.

It took until the final meet to determine the Arabians’ team place, but they beat conference foe Yorktown to grab third place overall. Coach Jeff Maydak was pleased with his team and especially his two individuals who will advance in the tournament.

“Dylan McCammon, freshman diver, placed second today, so he’ll be moving on to regionals on Tuesday, and we feel pretty confident that he’ll be able to advance to the state from the regionals,” said Maydak.  “Logan Kisinger, senior sprinter in the 50 free, had the (state) cut and tied for second place, so it was a good day for us.”

He said he got good swims from just about everyone on the team and was pleased with the results in sectionals.

“Real happy from the team perspective and individually most everyone did their best, which is always a good thing. Didn’t have 100 percent across the board, but we had a good percentage of really good swims today. So I was real pleased with the way things worked out.”

Anderson coach Jeff Eddy came into one of the strongest swimming sectionals hoping his team would swim to the best of their ability. He walked away pleased with his team’s effort.

The Indians scored a 210 for a sixth-place finish, but Eddy said that scoring over 200 points was a mark to be proud of in the Fishers sectional.

“I was thrilled with the way we swam,” he said. “Most of our swims were better if not a lot better than they were on Thursday (prelims). The guys just really came together (during) the season as a whole. This just kind of exemplifies the rest of the season.

“They just kept going, kept plodding along, and did a super job for us,” he added. “They made, I know, the coaching staff proud as well as they made themselves proud.”

Eddy said that he wasn’t putting as much an emphasis on where his team placed as much as he was how well they swam.

“As long as the swam well, I don’t care if their sixth, eighth or tenth, whatever,” said the Anderson coach. “Last year we were third in this meet and two years ago we were second, and we came out of here with our heads held high, great swims. I feel the same way now. Great swims, the guys are happy, smiles on their faces, that’s what it’s all about.”

The list of area finishers: 3. Pendleton Heights 279.5, 6. Anderson 210, 7. Elwood 64, 9. Liberty Christian 40.

  • 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.

  • SPT - HB0725 - Colts Camp - 007 CB Darius Butler holds tight to No. 20 The number 20 has grown to mean something to Darius Butler. 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.
