Steven Stumph Ties Brendan Hansen’s National HS Record at North Coast Prelims

In prelims of the 2013 North Coast Section Championships in California, Campolindo High School’s Steven Stumph has tied Brendan Hansen’s National Public High School Record in the 100 yard breaststroke.

Stumph swam a 53.67 in prelims of the meet, which tied the time that legendary American breaststroker Brendan Hansen swam in 2000 for Pennsylvania’s Haverford High School. Hansen would go on to win three Olympic gold medals, one silver, and two bronzes.

This also broke Stumph’s own NCS Meet Record of 54.06 set last season. This swim leaves him .01 seconds shy of the overall National Record set in 1998 by Patrick Fowler of Seattle Prep. That’s the oldest overall record left on the high school books.

Note: Joe Hudepohl’s 200 free private school record from 1991 (1:34.96), and Jeff Kostoff’s 500 free public school record from 1983 (4:16.39) are both older than Fowler’s record, but neither is the overall record.

Stumph is followed by two of the state’s best swimmers, Nick Silverthorn (54.47) and Charlie Wiser (54.85).

Stumph is also the top seed in the 100 fly, by a full second over Granada freshman Maxime Rooney, with a 47.91.

Stumph is a part of the huge freshman class going to USC next season.

Full, live meet results available here.

A full recap of prelims will be available after the completion of the session.
