The Indiana boys high school state swimming and diving championship meet got off to a very quick start tonight. In the first individual event of the evening Carmel’s Drew Kibler set a boys National Public High School record in the 200 yard freestyle.
The junior stopped the clock in 1:33.30, four tenths faster than Maxime Rooney swam last May. The old mark stood at 1:33.70.

Kibler swam the first 150 yards nearly identically to Rooney. The big difference maker was in the final 50 yards where he came home .41 faster, to lower the mark by .40.

He’ll have a chance to be even faster in tomorrow’s finals.
