Andrew Seliskar Gives NCAP 2nd NAG Record of the Weekend

  3 Braden Keith | November 30th, 2012 | National, News

National’s Capital Aquatic Club, or NCAP, broke their 2nd National Age Group Record of the weekend in Friday morning’s prelims, and still neither has come from Katie Ledecky (though she’s having a spectacular meet of her own).

This morning’s swim came from Andrew Seliskar in the men’s 100 breaststroke, where he was a 54.11 for the 14th seed. That broke the 2008 time swum by Cody Miller in 54.38; Miller is now at Indiana and is an Olympic Trials semi-finalist.

There were two other 16-year olds who were very fast in this race. Pleasanton’s Nick Silverthorn was 17th in 54.67 and Dynamo’s Gunnar Bentz, who already has a NAG Record in this meet from the 200 IM, was tied for 20th in 55.00. Silverthorn actually becomes with this swim the 4th-fastest of all-time, jumping ahead of the great Brendan Hansen.

Seliskar will be in the B-Final tonight, while the other two will be in the C-final. A middle lane for Silverthorn might see him spurred on to a 54-low as well; Bentz (along with Seliskar) will have the 400 IM final right before this 100 breaststroke so he could be tired by the time this race rolls around; much less ress in the finals sessions.

NCAP also got a NAG Record on Thursday from Janet Huin the 50 free. She’s got a chance at getting the 100 fly record tonight, with a 52.61 in prelims off of a record of 52.43. Both Hu and Seliskar train under John Flanagan at the Tyson’s YWCA site in Northern Virginia, and both did a lot of developmental work with Marilyn Mangels prior to that.

seliskar swam the 400 im along with bentz. he is seeded 4th in finals

Seliskars birthday is in the summer so I think he can really make an impact on the nag records at ncsa juniors. I think he will get the 200 IM one he just missed yesetday, plus the 400 IM and I would say 200 fly but phelps’ 142 is incredible.
