McIntosh was faster on each 100 by at least a second, save for the closing lap where she was ‘only’ .93 seconds faster than her old record-breaking swim. The time is .13 seconds faster than Isabella Rongione’s American National Age Group Record in the event: 8:55.43. She also undercuts the boys’ 11-12 record of 9:04.82 that was set by Nicolas Richards in 1971.
McIntosh has now broken National Age Group Records in every event that she’s swum at the meet.
