Maclin Davis Crushes National HS Record in 100 Fly

Future USC Trojan Maclin Davis isn’t a recruit who will blow you away with his versatility. What he does do, however, he does better than any other high school swimmer in history. The Montgomery Bell Academy senior broke the 100 fly National High School Record with a 46.64 at the Tennessee High School State Championship during prelims today.

That breaks the National Independent High School mark held by Nate Dusing out of Kentucky at 47.10 from all the way back in 1999. It also clears Michigan swimmer Sean Fletcher’s 47.08 from 2009.

Davis not only crushes the record by 4-tenths of a second, he also became the first high school swimmer ever to go sub-47 in the 100 fly.

Davis also split a 21.03 on the 200 medley relay. He will race the 100 free and 400 free relay on Saturday.

And that’s just prelims.
