Delaware Swim Team breaks girls 11-12 NAG record in 400 yard free relay

In the mid-day session of the Tom Dolan Invite in Maryland on Friday, the 11-12 girls 400 free relay from the Delaware Swim Team cracked the National Age Group record in winning the event.

Two teams got under the previous record, which was a 3:37.71 set by Irvine Novaquatics in 2011. But Delaware crushed the record, going 3:35.90 to take nearly two seconds off of it. Also getting under the record was Nation’s Capital, which took second in 3:37.16.

The Delaware team was made up of all 12-year-olds: Chelsey Liu, Bella Warner, Isabella Paoletti and Chase Travis.

Here’s a look at the girls splits on the way to that record-breaking finish:

  • Liu: 55.16
  • Warner: 53.79
  • Paoletti: 54.68
  • Travis: 52.27

Warner and Travis were two of just a couple girls to break 53 in the event, and Travis’s anchor split was the field’s fastest. The previous record-holders, from Irvine Novaquatics, were Courtney Mykkanen, Taylor Newton, Carly Perri and Aislinn Light.
