10-year-old Meghan Lynch doubled up this weekend at the Connecticut Senior Championships, breaking two National Age Group records in 1 swim.

In the girls 100 meter breaststroke, Lynch went 1:17.74. That broke her own National Age Group record of 1:18.67, set earlier this year. But the Greenwich YMCA swimmer also grabbed the 50 breast record with her split on the opening 50. Lynch went out in 36.13, taking just .04 off of the record held by Kaylin Burchell. Burchell’s record was a decade old, being set in 2004.

The 10-year-old Lynch already holds short course NAGs in both breaststroking distances and now holds all four breaststroking records for the 10 & Under division. She also swam the 200 breast this weekend, going 2:49.01. There’s no 200 breast NAG for 10 & unders, but Lynch is only 15 seconds off of the 11-12 NAG before even entering the age group.

    Meghan also went 2:49.01 in the 200. I’m not sure if they keep records for the 200s of strokes for 10/unders, but that was a great race to watch
