At the 2018 VHSL (Virginia Hish School League) Class 6 State Meet, the James Madison girls won the team title in a tight battle with Yorktown, while the Langley boys won the team title comfortably. While there were 38 state records broken between the other 4 classes of VHSL state meets, there was only one record broken at the class 6 meet, and it came in the girls 200 medley relay.

The Yorktown girls 200 medley relay team of Mary Kate Reicherter (26.19), Kayle Park (29.22), Victoria Huske (23.98), and Emily Brooks (23.63) combined to post a 1:43.02, breaking the class 6 rcord and overall VHSL record. The James Madison team of Rachael Holp (26.59), Anna Keating (27.96), Madeline LaPorte (25.53), and Anna Miller (23.63) came in 2nd with a 1:43.71, which also broke the class 6 record.

Torri Huske, a freshman, won the girls 50 free and 100 fly, just barely missing the class 6 and overall VHSL state records held by Janet Hu. Huske blasted a 22.39 in the 50 free to win by .60 seconds over runner-up Lexi Cuomo. Just 15 years old, Huske’s time landed her 26th on the USA Swimming all-time list for 15-16 year olds. The VHSL record sits at 22.29 from Janet Hu in 2014. Huske then went 52.64 to win the 100 fly, again narrowly missing Hu’s VHSL record of 52.46. That time landed Huske 15th on the all-time list. Lexi Cuomo came in 2nd again, posting a 53.05, while Cal recruit and National team member Cassidy Bayer came in 3rd at 53.07.

Another freshman, Anthony Grimm, threw down spectacular performances in the 200 medley relay, 100 back, 100 fly, and 200 free relay. Grimm started out the meet by leading off the winning Oakton 200 medley relay in a stunning 22.20. The relay went on to win by nearly 2 seconds, posting a 1:33.42. In the 100 back, Grimm won with a 49.15, marking himself as the only swimmer under 50 seconds. He took that 100 out in a fast 23.68. He also came in 2nd in the 100 fly, posting a 49.30 to event-winner Blake Manoff’s 49.02. Manoff will compete for Virginia Tech next year. Grimm also anchored the Oakton 200 free relay with a blistering 20.28 in prelims. In finals, he split 20.6, and the relay came in 8th.

Tyler Zuyus won the boys 200 free with a 1:37.58, narrowly missing the class 6 record of 1:37.42. He finished a second ahead of runner-up Noah Desman (1:38.61). Zuyus held his first 3 50s under 25 seconds (22.7/24.6/24.9), and his last 50 was 25.16. Cassidy Bayer won the 200 free in a lifetime best of 1:46.92, just narrowly out-touching Emily Hetzer, who went 1:47.08. Hetzer, an Auburn recruit, was charging on the final 50, throwing down a 26.88 final split. Hetzer also won the 500 free in a 4:46.99, finishing 7 seconds ahead of the field.

I see a lot of Classifications listed for VHSL, but how many meets do they run (how many champions in each event)?

There 6 classification sizes in VA sports — 6A to 1A. . The vast majority of 6A teams are from Northern VA and the Va Beach/Norfolk area.

The classifications are also based on school population
