Sabotin won the 500 freestyle in 4 minutes, 59.69 seconds and captured the 200 individual medley in 2:03.68 during Saturday’s Columbus North Sectional to punch a pair of tickets to Indianapolis.

Sabotin, who set a sectional record in the 200 freestyle last year, switched to the 200 IM this year.

“I really felt like I wanted to do something new,” Sabotin said. “I was really happy with how I swam, especially for being the first year doing it. We kind of rested less for this meet than we have in past years, so I’m really happy that I was able to swim those times going into state. I’ll hopefully have a good seed and will be able to drop more time.”

Prelims will be Friday night at the Indiana University Natatorium before Saturday morning’s championships.
