Columbine senior Chase Mueller won two events individually for the second year in a row. Mueller, an NC State commit, opted for the 200 and 500 free this year instead of the 100 back/200 IM lineup he took on last year.
Mueller opened with a 1:35.93 in the 200 freestyle, putting him just a few tenths shy of the 5A meet record. In the 500, Mueller clocked a 4:21.21 to clear the field by nearly 15 seconds and obliterate Jared Markham’s meet and state record time of 4:26.20 from 2011. Mueller’s personal best in the event stands at 4:16.52, which he did at Winter Juniors – West in December.
Later in the session, Chatfield senior Joshua Corn took down another state record in the 100 breaststroke. The Columbia recruit swam a 53.73 to crack William Goodwin’s mark of 54.67 from 2019. Corn’s swim was not a personal best, as he hit a 53.30 at Winter Juniors this past December.
Corn’s teammate Tristen Davin collected a victory in the 100 freestyle in a near-best time of 44.85. Davin, who is committed to UVA for the fall, was also the runner-up in the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:39.07 in finals.
Cherry Creek was led by junior Brodie Johnson, who defended his title in the 100 fly. The Georgia Tech recruit swam a 48.62, which is about a tenth faster than the personal best he set at Speedo Sectionals in March. The only other swimmer to dip below 50-seconds in the event was Arizona commit Mitchell Oliver (49.88), who swam in the B-final and finished 11th overall.
Truman Inglis was Regis Jesuit’s only individual winner, as he got his hand on the wall first in the 50 freestyle (20.79). The team’s only other victory came in the 200 freestyle relay (1:23.47), where Inglis was joined by Hawkins Wendt, Carter Anderson, and Ronan Krauss.
Rounding out the individual winners was Wyoming commit Drew Ravegum, who won the 200 IM (1:50.09) and sophomore Oliver Schimberg, who took the title in the 100 back (48.87). Luke Ogren, a sophomore from Cherry Creek, won the 1-meter diving event with a score of 553.55 points.
Cherry Creek’s team of Zachary Reese, Trevor Boodt, Johnson, and Jason Fan decisively won the opening 200 medley relay in 1:30.38. The final relay was a close one, with Monarch trailing Cherry Creek at the halfway point. A strong 3rd leg from Gavin Keogh shot Monarch to the lead, which they maintained to finish first at 3:04.90.
Well NCSU Swimmers Now have CO State Records in the 50,100,200,500 Free and 100 Back.
What is the altitude conversion in the 500?
So, is Chase the first guy to go sub 1:36 at altitude? A commentor from the preview article had said that might be the case, even when considering the college teams.
That state 200 Free record is below 1:36.00. His 500 Free Record is very Solid. With Altitude Conversion it is 4:16.21 which would of placed 5th at ACC’s
Totally biased. Chase was racing against himself. Check YouTube. He’s better than 4.16. Altitude conversion is a not exact science.
Great, another cracked recruit that won’t even sniff making NCS’s NCAA sqaud
I don’t know what the fastest time for a HS senior would be for the 500 free who ended up never making NCAAs would be, but I’m confident it’s slower than 4:16.
(just kidding it’s the Phelps NAG, way to find the loophole before hitting enter PK)
Are you mad they aren’t going to your D3 college nobody’s heard of?
No, I am mad they aren’t going to my home at SMU
Pretty much same thing amigo.
You had Maverick back in the day… the pride and joy of the woodlands for a time.
Why would you say that? Do you have facts ti back it up?
What’s a cracked recruit?
