Torri Huske is a competitive swimmer who represents the United States internationally. Huske was first reported by SwimSwam in December of 2017, when at age 15, she blasted a 53.3 100 yard fly, which made her over 3 seconds faster in that event than she had been a year prior.

Huske continued her progression, and by the end of her sophomore year, was at the top of her class in the 100 fly, putting her 2nd on SwimSwam’s Way Too Early NCAA Recruit Ranks: Girls Class of 2021.

2019 Northern Virginia’s 6A Regional Championships

Huske turned some heads at this meet, winning 4 events in total. She placed 1st individually in the 200 IM (1:58.13, breaking Cassidy Bayer’s regional record) and 100 free (50.04, breaking Hannah Baker’s regional record). She also helped Yorktown to titles in the 200 medley relay (23.38 fly, new regional record) and 400 free relay (48.24, coming from behind on the anchor leg by more than 2 seconds, race video below).

100 Fly National High School Record

Less than 2 weeks after having a sensational meet at regionals, Huske was back to swimming faster than ever. At the state championships, she threw down a 51.29 100 fly, breaking both the national public school and overall high school records in the event.

2019 NCSA Spring Junior National Championship

Huske continued her short course rampage in Orlando at the NCSA’s. She took titles in the 100 IM (54.20), 100 free (48.70), 200 free (1:46.66), 50 fly (22.96), and 50 free (22.36), as well as placed 4th in the 200 fly (1:56.18) and 200 IM (1:58.70). After being DQ’ed in the prelims of the 100 fly, she time-trialed the event, touching in 51.86, a time that would have won the final heat. She was the 2nd highest individual female point scorer at the meet with 212, behind only Phoebe Bacon.

2019 National Championships

Huske transferred her success to long course, showing her progress at the 2019 national championships. In the 100 fly she touched for 4th place overall in 57.80, breaking one of the oldest National Age Group records in the books, the 15-16 100 fly mark of 57.93 set by Mary T. Meagher in 1981. 15-year-old Claire Curzan was also under the previous record at 57.87, placing 5th in the heat right behind Huske.

Huske also placed 10th in the 100 free (54.73). This qualified Huske to swim the 50/100 fly and 100 free individually at the 2019 World Junior Championships.

2019 World Junior Championships

On day 2 of the competition, Huske split 58.04 on the fly leg in finals of the 400 mixed medley relay to help Team USA earn gold as well as break the world record by over 1 second.

On day 3 in Budapest, Huske touched 2nd in the 100 free for silver, nearly matching her personal best of 54.52 from the semi-finals, finishing in 54.54. Huske kept the medals flowing on day 4, touching 1st in the 50 fly with a time of 25.70, a massive personal best.

Huske again contributed to an American gold, this time on the 4×100 free relay on day 5.

On the final day, Huske won the 100 fly in a new personal best of 57.71, lowering her 15-16 NAG in the event even further for gold. Huske finished her program with the fly leg of the 4×100 medley relay, splitting 57.86 to help USA earn gold.
