Brett Feyerick Breaks Lasco’s 9-10 National Age Group Record in 50 Back

  20 Braden Keith | February 10th, 2014 | Club, Featured, National, News

While many of his NCAP teammates were off swimming at the 2014 DC Metro Championships over the weekend, 10 year old Brett Feyerick was quietly breaking a National Age Group Record in Annapolis.

At the Riva Swim center on Sunday, Feyerick swam a 27.52 in the 50 yard backstroke, which won the race by 5 seconds and broke the 10 & under National Age Group Record that was held by Destin Lasco at 27.96 from 2012.

Feyerick trains directly under Kevin McCarthy at the Georgetown Prep site run by Bruce Gemmell.

Given the names that have rolled through the backstroke races in that age group in the last few years (Michael Andrew, Destin Lasco, Vinny Marciano), for Feyerick to knock another four-tenths of a second off of the record is pretty impressive. Consider that headed into 2010, the record was a 28.64, and in four years (almost to the day) , we’ve already seen it go down by 1.1 seconds.

Feyerick had been #2 all-time in the age group coming into this meet, with a 28.32 from the Tom Dolan Invite in December.

Top 4 all-time in the age group

  • Brett Feyerick, 27.52, 2014
  • Destin Lasco, 27.96, 2012
  • Michael Andrew, 28.58, 2010
  • Mitchell Friedemann, 28.64, 2003

Very impressive record.
I remember watch him at the last Tom Dolan Invitational and he was very dominant in his age category.
Another NCAP future star in the making?

I Actually find quite disturbing to see there is a official record for 9-10 year old KIDS and can´t bode well with putting competitve pressure over them (and unfortunately there are some parents and coaches who does that)

Coach

There’s always records….it’s not pressure it’s motivation. What should be done is disabling/ not allowing negative comments on articles of age groupers. That will mess with their minds.

Coach

For instance all of the airheads commenting beneath me when this kid just made such a milestone in his life!

We aren’t dissing his swim, we are making fun of the fact that gogupplies seems to think that this kid is going to be the next Aaron Peirsol.

RAFAEL, that’s actually a big reason as to why USA Swimming doesn’t keep a top 100 listing for 10 and unders.

That is very, very cool! The future is looking brighter every day for USA!!!

My eyes just rolled so hard they fell out of my head.

Steve — Are your eyes rolling because you are the best ever at so many things?

WOW

No…he is rolling his eyes because yeah this kid went a 27 for his 50 but who knows where he’ll be in ten or fifteen years. Could do a different sport or just not develop. Hopefully GOGUPPIES comment was sarcastic…

It’s obviously almost impossible to predict where Feyerick, Destin Lasco. Michael Andrew or any other age group will be in 5 or 10 years. That being said, there’s no reason we can’t appreciate their accomplishments today. I’m sure all of these kids work hard to swim as fast as they do and we should be congratulating them, not putting them down.

We’ll probably see him swim the 100 back in the 2024 Olympics.

Please tell me your joking….

I’m not….

Well, in my opinion, Feyerick has the potential to continue his success at NCAP. He will likely get older and start training under Bruce Gemmell, which can’t hurt!

MarkB
2 years 5 months ago

Yes, he “will likely get older”. That usually happens.

A little publicity for my work. 🙂
You can see the NAG record progression in history for 11/12 and 13/14-year-old boys and girls in SCY and LCM.
I’ve also made a recap list of all these NAG record holders to see how many have had much success later in their swimming careers.
