Editorial coverage for U.S. Junior Nationals proudly sponsored by Q Swimwear!

IRVINE, California, July 30. IN his first high-profile head-to-head matchup with national age group king Michael Andrew, Penn Charter’s Reece Whitley turned in a 13-14 national age group record to win the B final of the men’s 100-meter breast at the USA Swimming Junior Nationals.

Whitley raced his way to a 1:03.23 to beat Andrew’s 1:03.49 in the consolation heat of the finale. That swim cleared the 1:03.82 Whitley used to cut .01 off Andrew’s record while swimming at the Middle Atlantic Senior Championships.

Look for Whitley to do even more damage in the 200-meter breaststroke later this week.
