La PORTE — It’s been quite the last five, six weeks for Ben Kish.

“It’s incredible because in eighth grade last year, I could barely do 100 (yards),” the La Porte freshman said. “I’d finish it off doggy paddling. Now within the first two weeks of getting in the pool and actually swimming, because I was diving, to do a 500 (freestyle) is great. Dropping all this time’s insane.”
