Swimming at the 2018 Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships Penn Charter’s Reece Whitley has broken two National High School records.
In Friday evening’s finals of the 200 IM Whitley clocked a 1:43.55 to set the National Independent School record. He was nearly a second and a half faster than the old mark, a 1:44.90 set by Curtis Ogren in California in 2014. David Nolan still holds the public school and overall mark of 1:41.39 swum in 2011.
