On the first day of the 2018 Pennsylvania AAA boys’ high school state championship meet on Wednesday, the boys from North Allegheny High School broke a National Record in the 200 free relay. In finals on Wednesday at Bucknell University, the team of Jack Wright (20.24), Joel Songer (20.40), Rick Mihm (19.57), and Mason Gonzalez (19.39) combined for a 1:19.60, which breaks their own National Public School Record set in December at 1:20.46.
