Yorktown High School’s Emily Weiss has won the 100 yard breaststroke three straight years at the Indiana High School State Championships. As a ninth-grader, she won in 1:02.20. The next year, she broke Lilly King’s state high school record of 59.63 from 2015 with a 59.37. And this season, she became the fastest prep breaststroker ever with her 58.40 national high school record. It was those 58 seconds of breaststroke that propelled Weiss to this honor: Swimming World’s Female High School Swimmer of the Year.
