Michael Andrew isn’t the only swimmer taking down National Age Group Record in College Station, Texas this week. The Aquazot swim team from California made the trip to the Texas A&M pool this weekend for the Speedo Championship Series (aka, sectionals) meet, and a group of their 15-16 boys broke the National Age Group Record in the 200 yard medley relay.
The group of Danny Tran, Tyler Lin, Justin Hanson, and Thomas Smith combined for a 1:31.90. That broke the old record by a second-and-a-half; it had been set in 2011 by the Crow Canyon Sharks at 1:33.41. That old relay was made up of Dillon Williams, Brett Usinger, Bryan Hughes, and David Morgan.
The splits on the latest record-breaking relay:
- Tran – 22.82 backstroke
- Lin – 25.32 breaststroke
- Hanson – 22.82 fly
- Smith – 20.94 free
The same foursome will be shooting for the 400 medley relay record on Sunday.
