INDIANAPOLIS — Though he may have been disappointed at not making the “A” final in either of his individual events, Christopher Lee was more than satisfied with how he finished his high school career on Saturday at IUPUI’s Indiana University Natatorium.
The Columbus North senior won the consolation heat in the 100-yard backstroke in 50.81 seconds to finish ninth overall in the event in the Boys Swimming State Finals. Lee earlier had placed 11th in the 50 freestyle in 21.18.
“I was looking to do a little bit more, but I’m really proud of how we did today,” Lee said. “My 50 free, I just had a rough swim. But winning the consolation heat (in the 100 backstroke) is a really nice way to end my career.”
Lee, who was making his third consecutive state appearance in both of his individual events, also swam on the Bull Frogs 400 freestyle relay team that finished 14th in 3:13.36. He was joined by sophomore Daniel Utterback and juniors Carlos Fabian Aguilar and David Fry.
