Sabotin, the Cougars’ lone competitor, swam a sectional-record 1-minute, 52.46-seconds in winning the 200-yard freestyle and came back to take the 500 freestyle in 4:59.25, both personal bests and school records at the Columbus North Sectional on Saturday.

“I was happy with my times,” Sabotin said. “This week was kind of just about qualifying for state, and then next week will be more focused on dropping time and getting where I need to be.”

Sabotin will swim in the state preliminaries Friday at IUPUI’s Natatorium with the hopes of making Saturday’s finals.

Look for a story on Sabotin in an edition of The Tribune later this week.
