Swimming, by Carmel

It seems like only a year ago I was writing here that Carmel had won 22 Indiana Girls Swimming Championships in a row. Well... make that a national record 23 years in a row that Carmel has won the Indiana Girls Swim Meet.

The greatest high school sports dynasty on record, the boys swimming team of Honolulu Punahou (President Barack Obama's high school), whose streak reached 29 years until it fell short in 1986.

With No. 23 in the bag -- the team walked around the pool with "Be Like Mike 23'' T-shirts, a reference to Michael Jordan's No. 23 -- Carmel passed the Punahou girls swimming team for the most consecutive titles in a girls sport.

Congratulations to the Norwell girls who participated in the meet: Logan Brinnk, Brooke Cossairt, Stephanie Bussey and Kelley Brewer.
