Omaha Creighton Prep junior Rush Clark set a state record Saturday in the 100-yard butterfly during the Maroon and Gold Invitational at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.

Clark touched first in 48.61 seconds to top the previous state standard of 48.68 set by former Prep star Jacob Molacek in 2013. Clark also swam a leg on Prep’s 200 medley relay team that finished second in 1:33.69, 0.09 seconds behind Wayzata, Minnesota, and good for No. 10 on The World-Herald’s all-time chart.

Teammate Sal Goaley finished seventh in the 100 fly in 53.04 to move into sixth place on the season leaders chart. Clark also is the new season leader in the 50 freestyle after tying for second in 21.44.

Prep senior Ross Pantano was second in the 100 backstroke in 50.64, which placed him at No. 8 all time in that event and makes him the season leader.

The Junior Jays finished second in the 13-team meet to Edina, Minnesota.
