The Haverford School’s Alessandro (Alex) Boratto, a Stanford University commit, broke the National Independent School Record in the SCM 100 backstroke earlier today in a championship meet against Episcopal Academy. (You can read more about that here.)
Boratto swam a 54.54, which erased 1.14 seconds from the mark of 55.68 set by Zach Althoff of the Baylor School on November 15, 2017. Out in 26.47, Boratto came home in 28.07.
