INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, February 9. AFTER witnessing Jenny Connolly of William Henry Harrison High take down the national public high school record in the 100 back last night in prelims, Swimming World six-star recruit Michelle McKeehan of Center Grove regained the national high school record in the 200 IM today.
McKeehan, who traded the mark with Swimming World National High School Swimmer of the Year Mary Beck last year, destroyed Beck's time of 1:57.41 set on Feb. 17, 2007.
McKeehan, who has signed to attend the University of Georgia next year, clocked a smoking time of 1:56.87 with splits of 25.59, 30.39, 32.56 and 28.33. This sets the bar low for Beck to shoot for at the Texas state championships.
