Heritage Hills diving saw a fitting end to its season as four-time sectional champion Morgan Schum realized her goal of making the finals at Saturday’s swimming and diving state finals at the IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis.


Schum earned 15th place with a score of 345.00, after snatching 16th in the semifinals and 19th in the preliminary round. Sarah Bacon of Indianapolis Ritter was the state champ, earning a score of 506.95.

With a team score of 397, Carmel won its 27th consecutive girls swimming state title, the longest streak of state championships in any girls sport nationwide. The Greyhounds, who swept first place the three relays and won four individual events, also tied for the second-longest championship streak in high school history; they are closing in on the all-time national record of 29 consecutive state titles, set by the Honolulu Punahou boys swim team from 1958 to ’86.

High school semistate: Forest Park’s Michael Nonte punched his ticket to this weekend’s state finals singles event after bowling a 574 series in the semistate at Southern Bowl in Greenwood. Nonte became the first Forest Park bowler to reach Saturday’s state finals, which are set for Saturday at Mike Aulbey’s Arrowhead Bowl in Lafayette.
