Phoenix Swim Club’s Miriam Sheehan celebrated her 11th birthday with one last National Age Group (NAG) record in the 10-and-under age group, going 59.67 in the 100 fly.
Sheehan turned 11 on Sunday, but since she started the Paradise Valley Fall Meet #1 as a 10-year-old, she gets to swim out the remainder of the meet in that age group.
Sunday was the final day of the meet, making it Sheehan’s last chance to etch her name into the 10-and-under record books, and the birthday girl took advantage, taking one more new record with the 100 fly.
Sheehan went 59.67, getting under Regan Smith‘s NAG by just .13 seconds. Sheehan broke Smith’s 100 back NAG Saturday as well.
That means Sheehan leaves the 10-and-under age group with four short course records to her name: the 50 back, 100 back, 50 fly and now 100 fly. She still holds long course records in the 50 free, 50 back, 100 back, 50 fly and 100 fly.
Sheehan swam two more events on Sunday, winning both. Her 50 fly win came in 26.73, just a tenth off her pre-existing NAG record. She also went 2:15.90 in the 200 IM, falling about a second and a half off of the NAG held by Jeremiah Tandingan from earlier this year.
