The boys swim team broke a total of three school records with the 200 free relay, the 400 free relay, and the 200 medley at state this past weekend. Overall, the boys finished second in the state, behind New Trier, which was Hinsdale Central’s best finish since getting second in 1996 and first in 1989.

Connor Schroyer, Brian Powell, Brian Portland and Will Leach finished the 200 free relay in record breaking speed at the state swim meet. The boys finished first in the state, ending their season with gold medals around their necks.

“We worked hard all season and it really paid off,” said Will Leach, senior and anchor for the 200 free. Leach was an alternate his sophomore year and swam in the state meet his junior and senior year. Next year, he will be swimming at Georgetown.

Together the four boys went undefeated swimming in the 200 free together. “It was a really good way to go out,” Leach said.

“[The 200 free] was the most impressive race I have ever coached,” said Coach King. Each swimmer was able to shave a second off of his normal race time.

The student section agreed with Coach King’s statements about the 200 free.“It was really fun. We had a lot of students there to get the crowd going,” said Eliza Gross, senior and member of the girls swim team.

“It was crazy,” said Cara LoPiano, fellow senior and member of the girls team Cara LoPiano, with a still-hoarse voice from cheering at the meet.
