Earlier this month, the Carmel girls swim program won their 32nd consecutive state title. On Saturday, it was the boys’ turn to dominate at the Natatorium at IUPUI.

The Greyhounds earned their fourth consecutive — and seventh in the last nine years — IHSAA Swimming and Diving State Finals with a state-record team score of 417. The runner-up, Franklin, finished with a score of 203. Carmel’s wins in nine of 11 events is also a record.

Senior Drew Kibler was a part of four first-place finishes for the Greyhounds, including the 200 medley relay team with sophomore Wyatt Davis, senior Stefano Batista and senior Andrew Couchon who narrowly missed the national-record time (1:28.00) the quartet set in Friday’s prelims.

Kibler, who also set a national record of 19.38 seconds in the 50 freestyle Friday, swam a 19.50 in the finals to beat two-time defending champion Jack Franzman of Zionsville. Couchon and Westfield senior Chris Kenney placed fifth and sixth, respectively, in the finals heat. Hamilton Heights junior Jared Holder, the first Husky to advance to the state finals in eight years, came in 10th.

Kibler’s other two victories came in the 100 butterfly (47.16) and the 400 freestyle relay along with Davis, senior Brett Sherman and sophomore Jacob Mitchell.

Davis defended his title in the 100 backstroke, as the sophomore finished with a time of 47.12 — .06 off the state record. Holder came in third (49.99), Carmel senior Drew Amaral finished fourth (50.02) and Carmel freshman Griffin Hadley came in fifth (50.98).

In the 1 meter dive, Richmond senior Isaac Khamis defended his title, while Fishers senior Cole Van Devend came in third.
