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.

  • Redneck Quaker: A young lady of the outdoors

    Where do I start to tell you about this 10-year-old outdoor lady? Let’s start with her own words from a nice letter she wrote.

    “My name is Lilly Hutchison and this year when I was nine and again hunting with my Papaw, Mike Burch, we got up way before daylight on opening morning of youth deer season. I was watching a 6-pointer for several minutes until a larger buck appeared and chased him off, but not giving me a shot at him. Papaw and I were preparing a place for our evening hunt when a couple of does came across the field right to us. I carefully placed my shot and she ran around 8 yards. That evening, we decided to go to our neighbors’ woods. On the way in, we saw a large buck watering in one of the few puddles in the creek. Papaw said we would wait nearby to see if he would come back. To our amazement, he did! I was fortunate to take this 10-pointer, 250-pound buck. I have had many great hunts with Papaw.”
