Three swimmers break 100-meter breaststroke record in California race

USC-bound Steven Stumph finished first at the North Coast Section finals

How fast was the 100-meter breastsroke final at the North Coast Section (Calif.) Championships on Saturday? Three swimmers touched the wall under the previous high school record time of 53.67 seconds, set by six-time Olympic medalist Brendan Hansen at Haverford (Pa.) in 2000.

Campolindo's Steven Stumph finished first in 53.39 followed by Miramonte's Charlie Wiser (53.57) and Granad's Nick Silverthorn (53.61).

"I knew both Nick and Charlie were going to push me to do my best, and they definitely did," Stumph told the Mercury News. "I couldn't have asked for a better race. ... It was amazing all the positive energy coming from the crowd, the announcers, and my teammates."

Stumph will swim at USC.
