INDIANAPOLIS – Carmel High School became the first to break the 1:40 barrier in girls high school swimming competition in the 200-yard medley relay tonight at the Indiana Girls High School State Championships.

Tonight, Carmel’s Sammie Burchill (25.39), Alex Clarke (29.00), Veronica Burchill (23.31) and Amy Bilquist (21.55) blasted their way to a 1:39.25 in the finale.

Yesterday, during prelims, the same foursome of Burchill (25.51), Clarke (29.07), Burchill (23.63) and Bilquist (22.12) turned in a sizzling time of 1:40.33.

That swim not only broke Carmel’s 2014 national public school record of 1:40.83, but also lowered the overall record of 1:40.73 set by Carondelet back in 2011.

Carondelet’s foursome of Madison White, Allison Gargalikis, Christina Ray and Chelsea Chenault set that mark in 2011.

Carmel’s previous record came by way of Hanna House, Clarke, Burchill and Bilquist.

Notably, the time also clipped the U.S. National Age Group record for the 15-18 division of 1:39.27 set by SwimMAC’s Kathleen Baker, Maija Roses, Alyssa Marsh and Lauren Rhodes
