Mashpee High Senior Takes Second Place At Swim Championships
By: Rich Maclone
Mashpee High School senior Chris Inglis had a fantastic showing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last weekend as he finished second among swimmers ages 15-19 at the New England Age Group Championships.
Inglis, who has been swimming competitively since he was 11 years old, and with the Cape Cod Swim Club since he was 12, represented the CCSC and turned in several outstanding performances, including gold-medal efforts in the 400-yard individual medley (4:02.35) and the 200 freestyle (1:40.62).
His time in the 200 freestyle was the second fastest ever by a Cape Cod high schooler. It was also the fastest ever swum at the MIT pool. The best time by a CCSC member belongs to Thiago Biazin, who swam a 1:40.48 in 1998 while a senior at Barnstable High.
Inglis also set a Cape Cod record in the 200 breaststroke with a 2:09.11 clocking. His other events at the meet included the 1,650m freestyle, which he placed second in with a time of 15 minutes and 46 seconds. He also swam the 100 backstroke, the 50 free, the 100 breaststroke, the 200 breaststroke, and the 200 individual medley.
This was the second time this season he has been named the second best overall swimmer at a major event. In December he was the second place finisher at the New England Senior Championships at Boston University.
Inglis will be attending the University of Massachusetts Amherst next year on a partial swimming scholarship.
