Birthday NAG Record For Miriam Sheehan With 59.67 In 100 Fly

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.

You can find full results of the meet on Meet Mobile under “2015 Fall Meet #1 at PSC.”

What a year for Miss Sheehan in the 10 and under age category! Congrats. And good luck now in the 11/12 age category. A very interesting age category to watch in the next months with phenoms like Miriam Sheehan but also freestyle star Claire Tuggle (already 2.10 in the 200 free in long course after only one month in that age category!), Zoe Skirboll, Asia Minnes, Joy Jiang, Mia Mesceda or Meghan Lynch.
