10-Year-Old Miriam Sheehan of Phoenix Swim Club Breaks NAG in 50M Fly with 30.43

Just two weeks after breaking the national age group record in the girls 10-and-under 50y fly at Far Westerns, and three weeks after breaking the 10&U 50m back mark, Phoenix Swim Club’s Miriam Sheehan etched her name in the record books once again, taking down the 50m fly record.

Swimming in a timed finals 50m fly event at the Phoenix Spring Invitational on Friday evening, Sheehan came in with a seed time of 30.88. She dropped .45 to win by 5.5 seconds, and eclipsed Ella Eastin’s 2007 NAG of 30.56 by .13.

Although USA Swimming does not recognize 10-and-unders in its Top Ten age group lists, Sheehan finished the 2014-15 short course yards season with the nation’s top times in the 50 back, 100 back, 50 fly, and 100 fly.
