Santa Margarita senior Katie McLaughlin reclaims the overall high school record in the 100 butterfly with her winning time of 51.53. She established the previous independent high school record last year at the same meet with a 51.78. At that time, the overall record was 51.92. Earlier this school year, however, Beata Nelson, lowered the public school and McLaughlin’s overall record to 51.70.

McLaughlin’s swim tonight reclaims the overall HS record in the girls 100 butterfly. Earlier in the session, she also won the girl’s 200 freestyle with a time of 1:43.01.

Mclaughlin wasn’t the only swimmer at the CIF-SS Division 1 meet. Abbey Weitzeil also lowered the public HS records in the 50 and 100 freestyle.

A full recap of the meet will be available later.

The 100 fly and 200 free back to back double on day two of the NCAAs will be tough for her.

Those are some wonderfully positive predictions for Katie McLaughlin and Team USA! 🙂

Crazy early predictions about Miss McLaughlin

A world final in the 200 fly next summer. 6th in 2.06.12. New PB.
Too bad she’s not in the 4X200 free team. Like Allison Schmitt and Simone Manuel by the way. But that’s another debate.

She wins the 200 fly at the olympic trials next year in 2.05.95 and breaks the antique and legendary US Open record of 2.05.96 by Mary T. Meagher. She swims 1.56 mid in the 200 free and qualifies in the relay. Finishes third in the 100 fly in 57 high.
In Rio she swims 2.05.01 in the 200 fly final and takes the bronze. Also swims a great 1.55 mid split in the US 4X200 free… Read more »

I am still picking Leah Smith to be on that relay!

Massive talent. Great to see her swim so well in short course because she’s so much better in long course.
She will qualify in the 200 fly and the 4X200 free relay next year.
USA has finally fund a girl who will play the 200 fly gold medals at the world level in the next decade. And her contribution to the US 4X200 free relay can be huge too.

Is the picture of her swimming for this article the one from her race where she swam a 51.53? Because if it is the actually swim, she wasn’t even wearing a very fast suit.
1) Her low cut front definitely catches water more than some of the higher necked (faster suits)
2) The leg suits that cover the thighs are faster too.

So she can take even more time off with a faster suit.

Tony, do you know when/where this picture of her was taken? Thank!

That’s not a picture of her swim.
She’s very talented but 51.53 and 1.43.01 in a training suit….

That’s a picture from a photo session.
The pics were posted last month on swimswam.

Hopefully she does. She doesn’t want to breaking Mission Vireo’s streak of having an Olympian every Olympics since 1976.

What a talent. I’m looking forward to seeing her represent us in Rio swimming the 200 fly.
