Late last week, Team Illinois swimmer Leah Hayes broke the 10 & under National Age Group Record in the 50 free at the Illinois Age Group Long Course Championships, swimming a 28.33, breaking the former record held by Adele Zyniewicz. Earlier this week, she and Team Indiana swimmer both were better than the old NAG Record in the 100 free.
On Saturday, a rivalry blossomed, as the 10-year old Zyniewicz from the Michiana YMCA took her record back, besting Hayes head-to-head with a 28.13, with Hayes swimming next to her in 28.43. Before Zyniewicz took it down almost two weeks ago, the record was a 28.58.
The swim came in the very next girls’ event after Hayes broke the 10 & under National Age Group Record in the in the 200 IM.
