Ala Viva!
(and with two sophomores on the relay!)
Let’s show some more respect for the former record holders, our friends from Mercersburg:
1:22.70 – 2/21/1992 – Mercersburg Academy – Brian Craft, Zack Gipson, Geri Mewett, Greg Gipson
It was a national record at the time, and it was around the time the 200 freestyle relay was introduced in high school competition.

Congrats Peddie! Didn’t think that one would stand for so long. I hope they crush it again next year!
