Bluefish Swim Club set its fourth mixed gender relay national age group record in the past two weeks Sunday at the New England 13-18 Age Group Championships, this time in the 13-14 400 free relay.

Four teams swam under the unofficial record mark of 3:58.68. USA Swimming began recognizing mixed-gender relay National Age Group Records in 2018, and earlier this summer released the benchmark times required to set records.

The relay from the Bluefish Swim Club touched first in 3:49.55. Brynn Wright led off in 58.67, Nathan Delisle went second in 54.82, Aislin Farris swum the third leg in 1:00.55, and Joshua Parent anchored in 55.51. Gator Swim Club’s A-team was second in 3:52.72, the team from Crimson Aquatics was third in 3:58.11, and Phoenix Swimming’s team was fourth in 3:58.40.

Earlier in the weekend, the same four swimmers combined to break the 13-14 mixed-gender 400 medley relay record in 4:11.95. Delisle, Parent, Farris (no relation to Dean) are coached by Nick Rice, while Wright is coached by Chuck Batchelor. Bluefish’s 11-12s broke the 400 medley and 400 free relay records at the 12 & under age group championships two weekends ago. 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.
