The Chesterton boys swim team captured the schoolís first-ever team State Championship by tallying 271 points to edge Hamilton Southeasteron (265) on Saturday at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis.

ďThe heart of these kids and the way they came through last night (Fridayís prelims) and again today is just incredible,Ē Chesterton coach Kevin Kinel said.

The Trojans earned five individual titles as well with sophomore Kyle Whitaker winning the 200 IM and the 100 Fly. Whitakerís 200 IM time of 1:46.75 broke the Indiana State Record and the National Public School record of 1:46.90 set by Carmelís Jason Lancaster in 1994.

Bill Bass won the 500 Free (4:32.64) with a comeback in the final 25 yards to edge Indianapolis North Centralís Brandon Siemasko (4:33.39).

Chesterton also won two relays as the quartet of Adam Thieling, Albert Miller, Whitaker and Tyler Fozkos rebroke their own state record in the 200 Medley (1:32.05). Fozkos, Thieling, Greg Franzen and Bass also won the 200 Free Relay in 1:24.89, just .05 ahead of Hamilton Southeastern.
