Dressel Sets Even Lower 100 Free 17-18 NAG Record During Finals of 2015 SEC Championships

During tonight’s Finals session of the 2015 SEC Swimming & Diving Championships, Florida freshman Caeleb Dressel lowered his still-new 100 freestyle 17-18 National Age Group (NAG) record he set earlier today during prelims.

Dressel’s morning mark of 42.31 had taken over the previous record of 42.34 set by David Nolan back in 2011 and set him up as the number one seed going into tonight’s heated battle. Although Alabama’s Kristian Gkolomeev came away with tonight’s win (41.68) for the SEC title, Dressel blasted a 41.90, lowering his NAG record even further and into new territory.  Dressel’s performance signifies the first time a 17-18 year old has dipped under 42.0

That is amazing… At 18 I was happy just to go 50.9

His dad Michael was an amazing swimmer in his own right and has always kept a caring and classy perspective on Caleb’s swimming career. So it is terrific to see the ” prodigal son ” continue to do so well .


you know that makes me like dressel even more


Unless Caeleb spends money recklessly, I think you may have used the word prodigal incorrectly.


MARKB You are looking at things too literally. I understand the parable of the ” The Prodigal Son” quite well.In fact I taught it in church last Sunday.


Prodigious son?
