The Boys 200 Medley Relay record swim (previously held for nine years by Tim Call, Daniel Simmons, Calvin Clark, and Bryant Taylor) was broken by 6 tenths of a second with the new standard set at 1:40.12 on Friday by Jake Anderson, Spencer McQueen, Cameron Green, and Brock Hargett.
Another longstanding record (held by Wesley Johnson for 14 years) fell in the Boys 100 Backstroke, and is now held by Jake Anderson, who became the first SHS swimmer to go under 54 seconds with a 53.87.
The girls came close in both freestyle relays, and Abbi Morris came within a few 10ths of a second of besting the 100 Breaststroke record (retained by Kim Clark).
Many personal records were also attained in tapered, strong, and heartfelt swims at the 4A State Championships. Please see the details below.
