Updated October 7 with video

ORLANDO, Florida, October 6. IT was a huge day for The Bolles School boys at the Florida Swimming Pool Association High School Invitational Swimming & Diving Meet as Sergio Lopez's squad shot down a pair of national high school relay records.

Ryan Murphy, Joseph Schooling, Santo Condorelli and Josh Booth put on a show at the meet, taking down both freestyle relay records in the same order in both races.

First, they posted a time of 1:20.88 in the 200-yard freestyle, becoming the first high school quartet to ever break 1:21. Hershey High owned the previous overall record with a 1:21.01 from 2011 in Pennsylvania, while Mercersburg owned the independent school record with a 1:22.70 that had stood since 1992.

Bolles then returned in the 400-yard freestyle relay with a 2:58.58, becoming the first high school representative squad under 2:59. New Trier set the overall and public school standard with a 2:59.76 in prelims at the Illinois High School State Championships last year. Meanwhile, Bolles owned the previous independent school standard with a 3:00.67 from 2011.
