Andrew Rogers of the Arkansas Dolphins has broken the 10 & under National Age Group Record in the 100 yard butterfly. Rogers swam a 59.44 in a time trial of the event on Friday night at the Arkansas Short Course State Championships on the UALR campus.

That broke his own record of 59.66 that was done in January, which in turn broke his record of 59.81 done in December.

In 1992, Zach Ferguson became the first 10 & under to break a minute in this event, and it took 22 years for his record to go down – but now Rogers has done so three times in three months.

Rogers is coached by Tay Stratton with assistance from Evan Johnston. The meet will run through Sunday.

Nice job. Maybe this kid could actually go under 50 in his lifetime. Unlike the previous NAG record holder…
