  17 Braden Keith | February 10th, 2013 | High School, News

For anyone looking to catch up and watch all of the record-breaking swims from Katie Ledecky and Jack Conger during finals of the 2013 Metro Championships on Saturday, we’ve got all of the videos together for you right here in one place, thanks to Matt Rees.

Start above with the big kahuna, Conger’s 500 free 4:13 that took down a 30-year old record, and work your way down as Ledecky and Conger took on record-after-record in Maryland.

Katie Ledecky swims a 4:31.38 in the 500 free to break her own National High School Record, which is now faster than the NCAA Record:

Katie Ledecky swims 1:42.96 in the 200 free, breaking Missy Franklin’s National Independent High School Record:

Jack Conger swims a 42.86 leading off Good Counsel’s 400 free relay, a new National Independent High School Record:

Jack Conger breaks Metros Record in the 100 backstroke with a 46.76, though that’s far off of where he was at Winter Nationals for the NAG Record:

Whoa, those are some mind-blowing swims – very fun to watch. Is this the first time a women’s high school record has been faster than the NCAA record?

I’m not a specialist of American high school swimming history but I have already found another example with Kate Ziegler. In 2006 she breaks the 500 free high school record and swims faster than the NCAA record which was owned by Janet Evans. And perhaps there are many other examples 30 or 40 years ago.

The next goal times for Katie Ledecky in SCY must be now the amazing American records of another Katie (Hoff). I think we must really still more appreciate them because even the young champion doesn’t beat them for now. I think she will do it but it will not be easy. 4.30.47 in the 500 free, 9.10.77 in the 1000 free (the most impressive for me) and 15.24.35 in the 1650 free are incredible records.
