Athlete. One of the best high school swimmers in history, this 1977 graduate of Westside High School in Douglas County competed at a time when freshmen did not participate in high school sports and swimmers were limited to just two individual events plus relay. So Chuck Sharpe “maxed out” with nine state swimming titles in three years of competition. Still a record in 2010 was the swift time he set in the 200 freestyle of 1:39.24. Later at Indiana University, he was named an All-American four times and won 11 Big Ten Conference swimming titles. Three times he was a NCAA finalist.
