Barton qualifies twice for sectional finals
Friday, February 17, 2017 9:27 AM
Cody Barton, a senior on the Huntington North High School boys’ swim team, advanced to the finals of the Warsaw Sectional in two events at the sectional preliminaries on Thursday, Feb. 16.
The top eight finishers in each race have a chance to advance to the state meet next Friday and Saturday at the Indiana University Natatorium, in Indianapolis, by winning the finals or achieving a state standard at the finals, which are set for Saturday, Feb. 18. Additionally, anyone reaching a state standard in the consolation finals could also advance.
Barton qualified in a pair of 100-yard events. The senior captured fourth place in the breaststroke, touching the wall in 1:07.46, and sixth place in the butterfly, clocking in at 1:01.47.
Huntington North freshman Nathan York qualified for the consolation finals. The rookie took 15th in the 100-yard backstroke, coming home in 1:12.73, which rounded out the Vikings’ participants to reach the sectional’s second day.
Barton and York were also part of the 200-yard medley relay team which qualified for the consolation finals by placing 10th. Sophomore Aidan Miller and junior Conner Mason made up the other half of the squad, which came home in 2:04.56.
