INDIANAPOLIS - Unlike the girls' swimming state meet two weekends ago there is no clear-cut favorite to win it all this morning.

Many of the contenders, Avon, Carmel, Zionsville, Bloomington South, Brownsburg and Hamilton Southeastern all had at least one swimmer or relay team grab first in an event on Friday night. This should pave the way for an interesting day of competition at IUPUI's Natatorium today.

The Carmel Greyhounds started off the meet's opening night with a first-place finish in the 200-yard medley relay prelims. They came in with a time of 1:32.11, bested their seed time by more than two seconds and beat out Zionsville by .34 seconds. The HSE Royals also made it into the championship heat for the event finishing fourth with a time of 1:33.29.

The Royals' Joe Young continued his dominance in the 100 backstroke. The senior bettered his seed time by almost a full second coming in at 48.52. He is still the only swimmer in the event to finish the race with a sub-50 second time. Currently, he is just 1.46 seconds off the state record that was set last year.

Young also finished second in the 200 IM. He came in at 1:48.31 and was just 2.64 seconds behind Bloomington South's Ian Finnerty for first place.

Fishers' Glen Brown will move on to the final heat in both the 200 and 500 freestyle races. The junior placed fifth in the 200 prelims with a time of 1:39.77 and was third in the 500 with a time of 4:27.66. He will be joined in the 200 free by Carmel's Troy Li who took second place in the event with his time of 1:38.77.

HSE's Nick Pfanstiel also made it into Saturday's final heat for the 500 freestyle. He grabbed the eighth spot with a time of 4:33.78. He will also compete in the 100 butterfly consolation heat. He qualified with his time of 50.30.

The Noblesville Millers advanced two swimmers into the consolation heat for the 100 breaststroke. Both Justin Ogle and Luke Conner will take place in the event. Ogle took ninth place with his time of 57.67 and Conner nabbed 11th coming in at 58.02.

The event to watch tomorrow will be the 200 freestyle relay. The top three finishers, Brownsburg, Carmel and HSE all finished within one second of each other. The Hounds bested the Royals by a mere one hundredth of a second.

The Diving preliminary round will begin today at 9 a.m. and upon completion will be followed by the semifinal round. Consolation and final heats for all events will be set to begin at 1 p.m.
