Carmel Boys Join Special Relay Club at Indiana State Championships

A little more than a week ago, Swimming World looked at an exclusive club as it pertained to high school relay competition. With the scholastic postseason heating up, we noted that only four schools (five teams) had produced relays in a single season under the following barriers: 1:30 in the 200 medley relay; 1:23 in the 200 freestyle relay; 3:00 in the 400 freestyle relay. Well, add another team to that list.

On Saturday afternoon, en route to the team title at the Indiana State Championships, Carmel went sub-1:30, sub-1:23 and sub-3:00. It is the second time that Carmel, coached by Chris Plumb, has accomplished the feat, joining the Greyhounds’ 2019 squad. St. Xavier (Ohio) has also achieved membership with two teams.

Racing at the Indiana University Natatorium, Carmel opened the day with a 1:29.60 outing in the 200 medley relay, with Carter Lancaster (backstroke), Ryan Malicki (breaststroke), Chris Holmes (butterfly) and William Kok (freestyle) making up the relay. Carmel then followed with a 1:22.02 effort in the 200 freestyle relay, with that squad featuring Malicki, Griffin Hadley, Augustus Rothrock and Kayden Lancaster. The 200 free relay actually finished as runnerup to Penn, which won in 1:21.29. In the 400 freestyle relay, Hadley, the Lancaster brothers and Rothrock delivered a time of 2:58.70 to cement their status as a club member.

Here is a look at the six teams in the club.
