Bluefish Breaks 13-14 Mixed 400 Medley Relay National Age Group Record

New England Swimming 13-18 Age Group Championships

2 teams swam under the unofficial National Age Group Record for the 13-14 mixed medley relay on Saturday at the New England Swimming Age Group Championships.

The relay from the Bluefish Swim Club touched 1st in the age group in 4:11.95, with a squad from the Gator Swim Club (New England, not Florida) finishing 2nd in 4:17.64.

USA Swimming began recognizing mixed-gender relay National Age Group Records in 2018, and earlier this summer released the benchmark times required to set National Age Group Records. In the 13-14 mixed medley relay, specifically, the North Baltimore Aquatic Club were under the benchmark time 2 weeks ago, swimming a 4:19.87. USA Swimming still hasn’t added that swim to its records sheet, but these mixed relay records have generally been slow to update this summer.
