Floyd Central's Henry Lang had a sensational senior season.
At the Hoosier Hills Conference meet Lang won the 200 freestyle, was a member of the Highlanders' victorious 200 free and the 400 free relay teams and also finished second in the 100 freestyle.
In the sectional, Lang won four events. He captured the 200 freestyle by edging teammate Dillon Freiberger and the 100 free by beating another teammate, Noah McIntire. He was also a member of the victorious 200 free relay team, along with McIntire, Tristan Deaton and Carson Huber, as well as the triumphant 400 free relay team that also included Dalton Lawver, Christian Salinas and Huber.
A week later at the IHSAA State Finals, Lang finished 23rd in the 100 freestyle and 24th in the 200 free. He also helped the Highlanders’ 200 and 400 free relay teams to 14th-place finishes.
“I felt very accomplished in how I swam,” Lang, a repeat finalist, said. “There were records broken on the relay side. I have forged many bonds with teammates that I know will last far beyond my high school career. In the future I will definitely stay in contact with my teammates and the friends I’ve made. I’m very grateful to be on the Floyd Central swim team.”
Lang will continue his swimming and academic careers at Centre College in Danville, Ky.
“I plan on majoring in a chemistry-related field. I plan on going into the 3-2 or 4-2 engineering programs and pursuing a chemical engineering degree,” he said before adding his goals for in the pool. "I plan to try and shoot for All-American."
