12-Year-Old Audrey Derivaux Hits 1:01.88 100 Fly, #2 11-12 Girl All-Time


12 year old Audrey Derivaux of Jersey Wahoos swam a 1:01.88 in prelims of the girls 100 butterfly on day 3 of US Junior Nationals in Irvine, California.

That was a best time for the 12 year old and she now moves up from #3 to #2 in the 11-12 age group in the event. Notably, Derivaux passes up Claire Curzan who represented the US in the 100 fly at both the 2020 Olympics as well as at the 2022 World Championships. Derivaux’s previous best stood at a 1:02.38 which she swam in early July of this year.

Derivaux now sits only behind National Age Group (NAG) record holder Cassidy Bayer who swam a time of 1:01.75  back in summer 2012. Derivaux will have a chance to break that record tonight as her best time of this morning earned her a 23rd place finish, earning a spot in the C final.

Wow that is a wild fast butterfly!

Also, nice to see that Dana Vollmer time still high on the list. I’ve got a soft spot for pre-2000 times still on books!

Didn’t she swim that time in 2000 when she was 12? Or was it the year prior?

It might have been 2000 – I assumed being born in 87 she might have done it in 98-99. Either way 22 years is a long time ago now!
