Herrera has had an absurd progression curve in the last year. He had barely gone under a minute in the 100 breast until this summer, when he started chipping away at his pre-pandemic best of 59.51. He was 59.40 at a Bolles intrasquad in July, then 57.95 a few months later in October.
During the Florida high school post-season with Bolles, Herrera first went 57.66 at districts, then 57.34 at his region championships. At the Florida HS 1A State Championships, Herrera blew past 56, going 55.94 in prelims and then 55.79 in finals to take third overall as Bolles swept the top three spots at the meet.
In the 200, he went from 2:07.20 in 2019 to 2:04.67 in October all the way down to 1:59.77 in late November, a week after his 3A State meet performance.
HARRY HERRERA’S PROGRESSION – 2020
