The Herrighty family has been a core part of OP Swimming since current Senior, Aidan Herrighty, was a freshman on the team. Although he was a strong swimmer during his first year, his potential was truly seen when he was a Sophomore, when he started turning heads with his astounding 100 Meter Breaststroke time. During his three years as the top breaststroker at OP, Herrighty (pronounced “her-ih-tee”, not “he-re-di-tee” or “her-gi-tee” like some announcers might say) gradually pushed down his time in the 100 Breaststroke, getting just barely a few tenths of a second away from breaking the record.

One of his closest attempts at the record was at last year’s Nonpublic-B State Finals meet, again versus Pingry. After getting swept in nearly every event until then, Aidan dove in and placed first, beating three of the swimmers on Pingry’s best-in-state team.

This year, however, Aidan’s younger brother exploded onto the scene, with impressive 200 Medley and 100 Breaststroke times for a freshman. Patrick Herrighty, the next member of the Herrighty family, has a very strong chance of breaking the record during his 3 more years at OP. He has pushed his time below 1:10, which makes the 1:01 record seem in reach, especially for a freshman.
