Reece Whitley continued to impress this weekend at the 2017 Eastern Interscholastic Swimming & Diving Championships. After setting the National Independent High School mark in the 100 breaststroke this morning with a 52.35, the Penn Charter junior went even faster tonight.

Whitley touched in a remarkable 51.84 in finals. That time lowers the National Independent High School mark and falls just short of the 17-18 National Age Group record. Olympian Kevin Cordes holds that record with a 51.76.
