INDIANAPOLIS — Terre Haute South’s 200-yard medley relay qualified 15th and South sophomore Dalton Mitchell qualified 10th in the 100 backstroke, setting a school record in the process, to advance out of Friday’s preliminary round and into today’s consolation round in the IHSAA boys swimming state finals in the Indiana University Natatorium.

South’s 200 medley relay team had a time of 1 minute, 37.53 seconds. Mitchell’s 100 back time was 53.82 seconds.

South coach Jeff Thompson said freshman standout Chandler Bray, who was scheduled to race in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke, was forced to scratch because of an illness.
