The 15-16 girls from the Minnesota Aquajets broke another Team Record on Sunday as they closed the Minnesota LC Championships, and in the process took a National Age Group Record back for the Aquajets.
This one came in 400 medley relay, where the combination of Courtney Evensen, Zoe Avestruz, Emma Wittmer, and Kaia Grobe combined to swim a 3:49.70 in the 400 free relay.
After just missing the 200 free relay record held by Scottsdale’s Victoria Toris, Sam Fazio, Hannah Holman, and Amy Bilquist, but that same group held the old 400 free relay record at 3:51.39 as well.
The Aquajets held the record before Scottsdale broke it just over a week ago.
The splits on this relay:
Evensen – 57.83
Avestruz – 56.92
Wittmer – 58.34
Grobe – 56.61
The team time trialed that 200 free relay from earlier in the meet on Sunday as well, but still weren’t able to get the record. They’ll be swimming more relays at Junior Nationals in two weeks, with the hopes of taking down more records.
