It was the last heat of the eight-and-under 50-yard freestyle, and Clark’s seed time of 33.87 seconds was faster than the state record.

The starting buzzer beeped, and Clark flew into the water alongside five other boys. With a flurry of kicks and strokes, Clark pulled ahead of his competitors, touching the wall 33.75 seconds later, officially setting a new VSA record.
