Timberlane’s Taylor Hogan had a historic performance on Saturday night at the 2017 New Hampshire Division 1 High School State Championships. Hogan, a senior, capped off a successful high school swimming career with 2 golds and a State Record. In the 100 fly, Hogan demolished the field, clocking in at 56.89 to erase the former State Record set by Olympian Jenny Thompson 27 years ago. She also swam her way to gold in the 100 back, picking up another state title in 57.89.

Bedford’s Emma Schulman pulled off a sweep of the sprints to help her school secure the team title. She first took on the 50 free, posting a 24.78 to win the race over Alvairne’s Haley Summers (25.42). Schulman returned for the 100 free, touching in 53.81 to beat the field by over 2 full seconds.
