Fisher, Carter Sweep Pentathlon Titles At Indoor Nationals

Aiden Carter chose to go to Nike Indoor Nationals in New York. Sam Fisher opted for New Balance Nationals in Boston. Both will return to home with a little extra luggage as they both claimed Pentathlon titles for Tennessee at the national competitions. It was Carter's second true multi event of the indoor season. At his first outing in Florida he posted a US #1 point total of 3773 and while he didn't match that total this weekend, his 3691 is the second best total in the nation this year only to himself and was clear of the next best competitor in New York by 106 points. Fisher won by a smaller margin posting a point total of 3661 beating second in Boston by 60 points. Here's a side by side look of Carter and Fisher's performances.

Last year in the Decathlon Variant (Triple substituted for Javelin), Fisher ended the scholastic season with a slight advantage of 6579 to Carter's 6527. In postseason, Carter would better Fisher in the true decathlon at 6741 to 6444. Needless to say, they are very evenly matched with different strengths and weaknesses and while they may never face off in a high school multi's competition in state, I think it's safe to say down the road they'll meet at the collegiate level. Carter is committed to Oregon and Fisher is committed to Mississippi State. Barring an outstanding point total by someone next week at adidas Indoor event, Tennessee will finish the indoor season with the #1 and #2 male indoor multi-eventers in the country.
