YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – While on their way to qualifying for the 2023 OHSAA Swimming & Diving State tournament in Canton, a group on the Howland boys’ swim team absolutely rewrote the record book in the process.

In total, there were six new school records after Districts, some of which stood for more than 30 years.

The Delida’s led the charge for the Tigers by reeling in four school records between the brothers.

Luke Delida registered two Howland school records on his way to qualifying for State in the 50 Yard Freestyle and 100 Freestyle.

He broke the 100 Free record that stood since 1992 after busting out a time of 48.36 to qualify for state in his second event individually.

Pete Delida also set two new school-bests of his own in the 200 Freestyle and 500 Freestyle at Districts.

His time of 1:52.07 in the 200 Free breaks a record that stood since 2019, while Delida broke his own 500 Free mark.

Then the four-man relay of both Delidas, Riley McBride and Preston Thigpen set two new school records on the way to qualifying for state as well.

First, the 200 Medley Relay set a new time of 1:44.40, breaking the former record from 1991.

The second, the 400 Free Relay team absolutely shattered a 30-year-old record by nine full seconds.
