MATT ELLIOTT

Not only did then-Richwoods junior Matt Elliott regain the IHSA title in the 100-yard breaststroke in February 2010, he did it by breaking a 26-year-old state meet record twice within 24 hours, going :55.23 in the preliminaries and lowering the mark to :54.74 in the finals.

By collecting his third title in as many years in the 200 individual medley and winning his second championship in the 100 breast, Elliott stayed on track to become the first boys swimmer to win seven IHSA individual titles.

Between his date with IHSA destiny in February 2011 at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Elliott picked up his second USA Swimming junior national title in the 200-meter breast in August at Irvine, Calif.

As a member of the National Youth Team, Elliott also had the privilege of representing the U.S. in 18-and-younger meets in Barcelona, Spain and Hawaii.
