In Friday’s 2018 Wisconsin High School Division 2 swimming and diving state championships Max McHugh set the National Public High School record in the 100 breaststroke. The senior at Sturgeon Bay Co-op raced to a 51.62.




The previous Public School mark was a 52.65, swum in prelims of the Indiana High School state championships by Chandler Bray in 2016.

McHugh was also under Reece Whitley‘s 51.84, the National Independent School (and overall National High School) record. Whitley is a senior at Penn Charter High School.

    Meet Mobile says Mr. Whitley swam a 51.68 (25.04 and 26.54) in prelims at Easterns this morning so the overall high school record might only last for 24 hours.
