West Johnston's Sarah Henry, Green Hope's Dom Glavich, Broughton's Sabrina Benson and Cary's Torrey Bussey set state records Thursday night during the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4-A swimming championship as area swimmers dominated the victory stand.
Area swimmers won 15 of the 24 events.
Glavich broke the NCHSAA's oldest individual swimming record while winning the 100-yard breaststroke in 56.24 seconds.
Ian Johnson of South Mecklenburg had set the record of 57.10 in 1992.
Glavich, who is a member of the U.S. junior national team, set a goal of breaking the record and he smashed it.
Glavich, a junior, also won the 200 individual medley.
He also helped Green Hope to a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay and a third-place finish in the 400 relay.
Henry finished off her high school swimming career by breaking the records in the 200-yard and 500-yard freestyle titles.
Henry set a new state overall record in the 200 free at 1:47.97 and in the 500 at 4:46.69. Her times in both events were nearly two seconds better than the previous state records.
Bussey set the record in the 100 breast (1:02.17) and also won the 200 IM.
Benson set her record in the 100 backstroke (54.40).
