Princess Anne Boys Set National High School Record in 200 SCM Medley Relay

With the vast majority of high school competition in the United States taking place in a 25 yard pool, the 25 meter National High School Records don’t get quite as much attention as their shorter counterparts.

They are, however, still kept, and there’s enough 25 meter pools, especially on the east coast, that the records are still noteworthy.

Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia this morning went a 1:44.47 in the 200 SCM medley relay at the Conference 9 Swimming & Diving Championships, which takes almost a full second off of the old record of 1:45.38 set by Langley High School, also in Virginia, in 2010.

The new record-setting relay was:

  • Mark Wilson – 26.92
  • Daniel Arris – 29.37
  • Harrison Pierce – 24.22
  • Jordan Bovee – 23.96

The old relay had some relatively known names on it, as it was made up of Stephen RichardsChuck KatisRyan Natal, and Chris Pivik.

What’s really cool about this SCM record is that per FINA’s rankings, Wilson actually ranks first in the world in 2014 in the 50 SCM backstroke with that swim (though we’ll have to wait and see if the results are submitted to and accepted by FINA.)
