Trey Freeman Drops 1:33.0 200 Free, Sets New Nat’l High School Record


Baylor School’s Trey Freeman successfully defended his state title tonight in the 200 free, unleashing a 1:33.06 to set a new national high school record.



  • 21.58 – 45.22 (23.64) – 1:09.17 (23.95) – 1:33.06 (23.89)


  • 22.00 – 45.65 (23.65) – 1:09.46 (23.81) – 1:33.26 (23.80)

Freeman was incredibly consistent, going out in 21.5 and holding 23’s the rest of the way. His 45.22 going out was met with a 47.84 back end, which just gets him under Grant Shoults‘ 200 free national high school record of 1:33.26. Shoults swam that time in May of 2016, when he went 4:12.87 to also set the 500 free national overall record.

His time also makes him the 2nd-fastest 17-18 year old in U.S. history. Maxime Rooney‘s 1:32.18 leads the way, and Freeman’s 1:33.06 puts him just ahead of Tom Kremer’s 1:33.07 from 2013.

Freeman is also ahead of the national public high school record. That time is a 1:33.30, set one year ago by Carmel’s Drew Kibler. Since Freeman attends a private school, however, the national public high school record still belongs to Kibler, who will get a crack at the overall record later this month at the Indiana high school state championships.

Did you go 1:33 In the 200 free as an 18 year old? Because 2nd fastest 18 year old ever is pretty good if you ask me. Give him some credit. Nobody goes that fast as an 18 yr old
