Jack Armstrong went 20.10 and 43.96 in the sprints to highlight the boys Texas 5A state meet. Meanwhile Kaitlynn Sims went 4:39.73 in the 500 and Lindsay Looney added a 1:59.33 IM and 53.28 butterfly on the girls side.
The boys 6A landscape looks much different after the graduation of Jack LeVant. And it’s not just the record-shattering LeVant: every single 6A boys individual swimming race last year was won by a senior, opening up the field in a big way for 2019.
Wheal, a Virginia commit, now ranks 2nd among American juniors in the event this season.
Freshman impressed and a number of 5A records fell at the 2018 Texas 5A State Championships.
