Buoyed by first-place finishes in six of 12 events, defending champion Franklin dominated Saturday’s boys swimming and diving sectional, outpacing runner-up Center Grove by a 121-point margin.
The tournament host Grizzly Cubs were paced by Clayton Culp, Adam Destrampe and Kevin Stahl, each of whom qualified for the IHSAA State Championships in four events. Sectional champions and individuals beating predetermined cutoff times advance to the Feb. 28 to March 1 state meet at the Indiana University Natatorium at IUPUI.
Destrampe won the 200 and 500 freestyles. Culp won the 50 freestyle and qualified for state in the 100 freestyle by beating a cut-off time time. Kevin Stahl won the 200 individual medley and qualified for state in the 100 butterfly by beating a cutoff time, which also was a school record.
