Alex Walsh Hits 58.8 Breast, Freeman Goes 4:15 500 at TISCA Champs

2018 TISCA HS CHAMPIONSHIPS

On the 2nd night of the 2018 TISCA Championships, Harpeth Hall’s Alex Walsh and Baylor School’s Trey Freeman stole the show again.

Walsh, who was part of a national high school record last night and won the 200 free shortly after, swam a 58.88 to win the 100 breast tonight. 2nd was Allie Raab of Brentwood Academy in 1:01.22. Walsh also anchored Harpeth Hall’s 400 free relay with a 48.78– the relay won the meet in 3:22.47.

Harpeth Hall also won the 200 free relay in 1:31.38, powered by Alex Walsh‘s sister Gretchen Walsh‘s 21.68 anchor leg. Gretchen Walsh also won the 100 backstroke in a best time of 52.85, a marked improvement from her 54.25 previous PR done in December at Winter Junior Champs. Ophelia Pilkinton was yet another winner for Harpeth Hall, going 50.05 to take the 100 free.

Freeman, meanwhile, unleashed a 4:15.53 to win the 500 free. That’s just off of his best time of 4:15.06. Baylor got two individual wins from Jack Kirby tonight, as he was 44.45 to win the 100 free and 48.23 to take the 100 back. Baylor closed things out with a 400 free relay win (2:59.52), helped by Freeman’s 43.87 lead-off leg.

Harpeth Hall girls and Baylor School boys are the 2018 TISCA team champions.

Walshies savin dat taper for Nationals tryna go to pan pacs? Top 3 in each event, right? Got a few choices for Alex.. Breast? IM? Back? Gretchen could pull a Penny and make that 4×1?

IM and Back for Alex, Gretchen could make he relay.

How about Dan Flack for the UNC job? Alum and a GREAT COACH!

Yuri head coach, Dan Flack assistant would perhaps be the ultimate dream scenario to rebuild UNC into an elite program

Trey Freeman looks to be a great fit for the legendary Gregg Troy-led Florida mid-/distance program. The big question is whether he’ll trend towards a 500-200-1650 lineup (which he seems to fit better now) or a 500-200-100 lineup… either way, this kid definitely has an exciting career ahead of him!

Troy might torture him as a freshman but this guy is headed for 100-200-500 territory and 100-200 internationally… cf Townley.
