PHOENIX, Arizona, July 12. IT took a pair of amazing national records to lead the 100-yard fly in the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association All-American lists. Bolles' Joseph Schooling and St. Margarita's Katie McLaughlin both took down a national high school record for the top times this year.
Schooling had an amazing swim at the Florida State 1A high School State Championships as he crushed the men's 100-yard fly national high school record during finals of the meet. After initially clocking a 45.90 in prelims, Schooling broke the record with a 45.52. Schooling's time undercut his Bolles training partner Caeleb Dressel (45.89) for the record in the event.
Here's video of Schooling's record-breaking swim:
McLaughlin joined the national high school record party at the CIF Southern Section Championships by clipping the women's 100-yard fly record with a sizzling time of 51.78. She split the race 24.49, 27.29 en route to taking down Jasmine Tosky's national record of 51.92. Notably, McLaughlin also cleared the national independent school record of 52.23 set by Punahou's Jasmine Mau. Earlier in the night, McLaughlin also put up a 1:44.66 to win the 200-yard freestyle.
Here is video of McLaughlin's amazing high school record:
While Schooling and McLaughlin were clearly at the top of their games in the 100 fly, some strong swims occurred a bit further down the All-American lists. Ryan Dudzinski will be the fastest returning swimmer next year as the junior ranked fifth with a 47.44. McLaughlin, meanwhile, should have some competition next year with Verona's Beata Nelson ranking second with a 52.06.
Nelson spoke with Swimming World's Jeff Commings as part of a special weekend edition of The Morning Swim Show.
