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.
