Reece Whitley Smashes More Records
Reece Whitley's domination of Inter-Ac League swimming has ended.
And, yes, of course, with a bang.
The Inter-Ac championships were held Wednesday at Malvern Prep and Whitley, Penn Charter's nationally famous senior, like always was in a record-setting mood.
His time of 1:38.29 in the 200-yard freestyle did double duty. It broke Malvern's pool record AND PC's team record of 1:41.66 by Brian Walters ('95). Then, in the 100 butterfly, he lowered his team mark from 51.82 to 49.21 . . . and got to enjoy seeing soph teammate Zion Weeks (below with Reece) place fifth at 55.96.
"Reece has obviously had an amazing Inter-Ac career, putting his name on record boards all around the league," coach Brian Hecker noted. "We are sad that his Inter-Ac career has come to an end, but look forward to his final swims for Penn Charter's high school team at Easterns in two weeks."
