10-year-old Adele Zyniewicz, unattached, broke the 10 & under NAG record in the 50m free yesterday afternoon at the Indiana SwimFest LC Championships at IUPUI with a 28.37.
The old record was a 28.58 by Phoenix Swim Club’s Miriam Sheehan, who still holds four other NAG records in the 10 & under category. Zyniewicz took more than two whole tenths off of that mark with her swim today.
Previously, Zyniewicz’s best was a 29.29 from mid-June. This weekend in the 10 & under category, she also won the 50 fly (31.59), 100 fly (1:11.08), 100 free (1:02.67), 200 free (2:23.70) and 50 back (33.24), breaking Indiana age group records in all of the preceding events save for the 200 free.
Zyniewicz is less than a second off of Claire Tuggle‘s 100 free NAG, a 1:01.81. She’s also just over a second off of Sheehan’s 32.18 50 back NAG, and her 50 free time in yards (25.66) from March is within a second of the SCY NAG. It’s unclear how much longer she has before she ages up into the 11-12 age group, but with the rapid rates of improvement (she went all best times this weekend, plus lopped off 2.23 seconds in her 50 fly and 3.34 seconds in her 100 free after posting new lifetime bests just last month) she’s experienced, Zyniewicz could be barreling towards more national marks.
