Alex Walsh has done it again. The Harpeth Hall swimmer has set another National Independent School record- this one, an individual mark. Walsh raced to a 58.88 100 yard breaststroke tonight, at the 2018 Tennessee High School swimming and diving state championships.
Walsh’s swim destroyed the previous mark, a 1:00.05, set by eventual Stanford swimmer Sarah Haase in 2012. Walsh was also nearly as quick as Emily Weiss, who broke the National Public School record earlier this afternoon, with a 58.40 at the Indiana High School State meet.
Walsh won the race by two and a half seconds. Stanford commit and Brentwood Academy senior Allie Raab was second in 1:01.22.
On Friday night Walsh swam on the National record setting 200 medley relay and won the 200 free in 1:45.93.
