Andrew Seliskar Swims Second-Fastest 200 IM in High School History at Virginia 5A Meet

In an update to an early story about prelims at the Virginia High School 5A Championship meet, Jefferson High senior, and Cal commit, Andrew Seliskar has swum the second-fastest 200 yard IM in high school history, going a 1:43.01 in finals.

That is still behind David Nolan’s legendary National High School Record of 1:41.39, but faster than the 1:43.34 at which Nolan held the record before he broke it as a senior.

Seliskar’s splits:

  • fly – 22.70
  • back – 25.45
  • breast – 29.79
  • free – 25.07

The five fastest 18 & unders of all-time in the event:

  1. David Nolan – 1:41.39 (2011)
  2. Ryan Murphy – 1:42.24 (2014)
  3. Andrew Seliskar – 1:43.01 (2015)
  4. Chase Kalisz – 1:43.04 (2013)
  5. Tom Kremer – 1:43.15 (2013)

Tiny correction – I think his back was 25.4 because those splits add up to a 1:42.0
