Carson Foster dropped a blazing-fast 1:32.99 in the 200 free at the 2019 Ohio Boys DI State Swimming and Diving Championships to set a new National High School record.

Foster’s time of 1:33.38 during prelims was just off the national mark, and his time during finals blasted the old record of 1:33.30 which was held by Carmel’s Drew Kibler set on Feb. 24, 2017.

In addition to setting a new National High School mark, his time also broke his own Ohio state record. A current junior at Sycamore High School, Foster has verbally committed to the Texas Longhorns as a member of the class of 2024.

Foster’s splits:

  • 50 – 21.63
  • 100 – 45.14 (23.51)
  • 150 – 1:09.16 (24.02)
  • 200 – 1:32.99 (23.83)

Foster does his club swimming with Mason Manta Rays and is a member of the United States National Junior Team. He won the 200m back, 200m IM, 400m IM and anchored the winning 4×200 free relay at the 2018 Junior Pan Pac Championships. He also earned silver medals in the 4×200 free relay and the 200m back at 2017 World Junior Championships
