Lewis Cass’ Carbaugh is MIC champ in 500 freestyle

Lewis Cass senior Kirsten Carbaugh is the MIC 500 yard freestyle champion

Lewis Cass standout swimmer Kirsten Carbaugh capped off her career by winning the Mid-Indiana Conference title in the 500-yard freestyle this winter.

Carbaugh won the event with a personal-best time of 5:50.

“I was really glad to do it my senior year. It was a great way to end my year,” she said.

Carbaugh competed at the Warsaw Sectional this past weekend. She finished fourth in the 500 free with a time of 5:52 and seventh in the 200 IM with a time of 2:33.

She was also part of the Kings’ 400 free relay team that finished second to Culver Academies with a time of 3:58.

The Kings finished third as a team.

“We went up against 13 schools and we ended up getting third, so I think that was a great accomplishment,” Carbaugh said.

Cass coach Melanie Karmel praised Carbaugh’s work ethic.

“She’s one of the hardest working swimmers that I’ve ever had the pleasure to coach. She’s always putting in the effort without me even having to tell her what to work on. So we will miss her a lot next year because she sets such a great example,” Karmel said.

“One of her goals at the beginning of the year was to win something in the MIC. She’s such a versatile swimmer that I could put her in every event, she’d do great in it. So we kind of had to think about what her best chances were and she worked really hard to achieve that goal.”

Carbaugh talked about her championship swim. Her closest competitor was a swimmer from Western.

“It wasn’t that close but I definitely give it to the other girl. She stayed right with me and she definitely pushed me to the end,” she said.

Carbaugh was the Queenfish’s lone MIC champ. Classmate Claire Crum just missed winning the title in the 100 free.
