Garrett Clarke swam a time of 56.52 on route to helping the Liverpool Warriors win the team title at Saturday's Section 3 State Qualifier Meet. The meet was held at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. The race set a NEW NIAGARA DISTRICT RECORD for the Boys 17-18 Age Group. Garrett's time in the breaststroke on Saturday also bettered his own Section 3/LHS record set Thursday and was only 4 hundredths of a second off the NY State Record (56.48). With the NY State Championships in Rochester on his schedule in 2 weeks, he'll have an opportunity to see if he can lower his mark again.
The previous Niagar District Record of 56.62 was held by Matt Monaghan and was set back in 1990.
