John Pelzel attended the State Swim competition on Friday, February 26th.
He had qualified earlier at sectionals with a time of 59.55 in the 100 Breaststroke, giving him the 25th spot prior to the state meet.
He once again improved his time and finished out the state competition in 22nd place with a new school and personal record time of 59.13.
What an impressive swim!
John started sectionals at a 104.11, had a 100.51 in preliminaries, and at finals he was beat, but tied for 31st, 32nd, and last position for invitation of non-event winners, with a time of 59.55. He finished his season in 22nd place in the state of Indiana with a time of 59.13. Plus he beat the guy who beat him at sectionals!
Congratulations John Pelzel!
