Avon’s Chandler Bray demolished the previous national high school record in the 100-yard breast during the 2016 Indiana High School State Championships tonight.
Swimming during prelims, Bray uncorked a blistering time of 52.65. That swim blasted the previous record of 52.92 set by Jacob Molacek of Creighton Prep during prelims of the Nebraska High School State Championships in 2014.
Bray’s time also breaks the public school record of 53.06 set by Connor Hoppe of Golden Valley High in California in 2014 as well. Since Avon High is a public school, Molacek’s time will remain as an independent school mark.
Bray split the race 24.90, 52.65 (27.75).

Heading into this weekend, Bray’s previous best had been a 54.12 while swimming for the Avon Community Swim Team at the 2015 Speedo Winter Junior Nationals.
Keeping up with all of the other swims this weekend, Bray’s time during prelims tonight would have placed fourth at both the Big Ten and ACC Championships in college.
Bray is going to be a huge asset for Florida as a Florida commitment, considering sprint king Caeleb Dressel has been handling a lot of the breaststroke duties for the Gators during relays.
