At the 2021 North Carolina 4A High School State Championships, age-group star and US National Team member Claire Curzan broke the national independent school record and swam the fastest time in a high school meet in history in the 100 yard butterfly with a time of 50.35. 

 

The junior from Cardinal Gibbons High School helped lead her team to an 8th place finish at the meet. In addition to her 100 fly performance, Curzan also won the 100 backstroke in a time of 51.57 and split a 48.73 leading-off the 400 freestyle relay. Although Curzan was also on the 200 medley relay, her split wasn’t published as the team was disqualified.

Curzan originally set the 100 butterfly record at last year’s State Championships. A sophomore at the time, Curzan shattered Tori Huske’s old National High School record of 51.29 with her performance, setting a new 15-16 NAG record in the process. However, the NAG record has since been lowered as Curzan posted  a time of 49.73 in August while swimming with her club team, the TAC Titans.

In addition to her short course performances, Curzan has also become one of the country’s top long course butterflies after posting a time of 56.61 in the 100m fly in November, which made her the 3rd fastest American of all-time.
