Verona native Stephanie Ferrell has broken Harvard University’s record in the 100-meter breaststroke. The freshman swimmer finished with a time of 1:02.64 at the Georgia Invitational last weekend.

“Our freshmen have been strong from day one,” said team co-captain Kristi Korsberg to the Harvard Crimson. “In a lot of ways, we’re following their lead … riding the wave of their energy and enthusiasm.”

Stephanie is no stranger to breaking records, shattering numerous school, county, and state marks over her high school career at Mount Saint Mary Academy in Watchung, N.J. In addition, she won the 100-meter breaststroke and 200 IM at the Somerset County Championships for four consecutive years. Her many victories included first place at last spring’s Meet of Champions as part of the Mount’s 200-medley relay team. She was also named the Somerset County Girls Swimmer of the Year for 2011 by the Star Ledger and the Girls Swimmer of the Year for 2011 by the Courier News. Among other honors last season, Stephanie was named First Team All-State, First Team All Non-Public, and First Team All-Somerset. She helped lead the Mount Lions to first place in the Non-Public B division of the NJSIAA Tournament last season.

The news of Stephanie’s record was met with great enthusiasm at her alma mater, where she is respected not only as a standout athlete but as an exceptional student and friend. “Mount Saint Mary Academy is intensely proud of Stephanie and all of her accomplishments as a student and an athlete,” said Mount Directress S. Lisa Gambacorto. “She is a remarkable young woman whose academic and athletic abilities are matched by her poise, dedication, and spirit.”
