August 1, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — "Josh Baugh pulled off a couple of surprises Friday night, just like Sugar Creek Swim Club coach Mark Hesse thought he would," begins a story published in today's Paper of Montgomery County. "Baugh advanced to finals in two of his events and came away with two top-25 finishes at Friday's Senior State Long Course Meters Championships at IU-Bloomington."
The newspaper notes, "Baugh made the 100-meter freestyle finals and finished 21st overall (54.90 seconds), then made the 100 breaststroke finals and finished 23rd overall (1:11.91).
