Torri Huske Lowers National Public High School Record in 100 Fly (Race Video)

Torri Huske, a junior at Yorktown High School in Arlington, Virginia, lowered the National Public High School Record in the 100 fly on Saturday. Swimming at the 2020 VHSL Class 6 State Swim & Dive Championships, she clocked a 50.69 in finals to win the event by more than 4 seconds. That performance lowered her own Virginia 6A, all-time Virginia High School, and National Public High School records which she had set last February with 51.29. Huske also won the 50 free, breaking her own 6A and all-time Virginia state records of 21.95 with 21.83.

Most of Huske’s improvement came on the second half of the race, where she was nearly half a second faster than she had been last year:

2019 VHSL 6A 2020 VHSL 6A
1st 50 23.69 23.58
2nd 50 27.60 27.11
100 fly 51.29 50.69

Huske swam a lifetime best 100 fly of 50.49 in December at the 2019 NCAP Invitational. That ranks her 4th all-time among 17-18 girls:

Time Athlete LSC Team Meet Date
50.19 Olivia Bray VA GATR 2019 VA VSI SC Senior Champion 2/28/2019
50.30 Kate Douglass VA UVA 2019 UT Invite 11/21/2019

50.49 Torri Huske PV AAC 2019 PV NCAP Invitational 12/12/2019

The overall National High School Record still belongs to Claire Curzan, who established the mark with 50.35 at the 2020 North Carolina 4A State Championships.

Congrats to Torri Huske. If she’s not eaten by the pressure of trials I think she can make the team. The women’s 100 fly will be a very open event between her, Dahlia, Kendall, McLaughlin, Curzan, Tetzloff, Nordmann, Douglass, Bray….. Regan Smith could make top 2 but I doubt she’s interested. All for the 100 back. The big question is Brown as her 100 fly in LCM is so far not at all at the same level as it is in SCY.
