Bulldogs' McCarty breaks 2 records

STAFF Reports

Two days after he narrowly missed breaking the school record in the 100-yard freestyle, Clinton Central’s Erik McCarty not only broke that record in a home meet against Tipton, but also took down another record as well.

“We had a lot of personal bests and Erik McCarty claimed the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:49.05 that was held by Nick Collins back in 1999 and then he claimed the 100 freestyle with a time of 49.10 that was held by Brad Rogers back in 2004,” Bulldog coach Wyndi Hall noted.

The boys team beat Tipton, 104-81, to move to 12-0 on the season in dual meets, while the girls narrowly lost, 99-84, for an 8-4 season record.

McCarty needed every bit of his record time in the 200 freestyle as he narrowly beat Tipton’s Ayden Stanley by .18 seconds for the win.

Along with McCarty in both events, other boys winners for the Bulldogs were Blake Mosbaugh (24.14 in the 50 free), John Dunn (5:39.12 in the 500 freestyle) and Colton Payne (1:00.65 in the 100 backstroke).

Girls winners included Isabelle Hendrickson (2:27.17 in the 200 IM), Kailie Burnette (1:00.20 in the 100 freestyle) and Brogan Sheets (25.83 in the 50 free and 1:18.28 in the 100 breaststroke).

The boys won the 200 and 400 freestyle relays, while the girls won the 200 medley and 200 freestyle.

Relay team winners for the boys included Aidan Hendrickson, Mosbaugh, Wreese Sheets and McCarty in the 200 free (1:37.62) and Hendrickson, Mosbaugh, Payne and McCarty in the 400 free (3:37.67).
