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

  20 Braden Keith | February 10th, 2014 | Club, 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

I personally know Brett. He swims in my lsc. He is AMAZING. You should stop talking bull about him. You people are just jealous he is faster than you.

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.
