Dynamo Swim Club Shatters Girls 13-14 800y Free Relay NAG

At the Georgia Age Group Championships, Dynamo’s 13-14 A 800 free relay broke the NAG record. The quartet of Tristen Ulett (1:49.76), Addie Farrington (1:52.05), Jade’ Foelske (1:49.50), and Abby Grottle (1:53.69) combined for a time of 7:25.00.

That takes nearly two full seconds off of the old record of 7:26.91, set in 2014 by Chattahoochee Gold.

Old Record (2014) New Record (2016)
Jaclyn Hill 1:51.21 Tristan Ulett 1:49.76
Caroline Aikins 1:51.17 Addie Farrington 1:52.05
Bayley Frierson 1:52.64 Jade’ Foelske 1:49.50
Emma Cole 1:51.89 Abby Grottle 1:53.69

Ulett and Foelske each came through with huge swims. Ulett last month broke the 13-14 NAG in the 100 fly, posting a 52.97 to take down Eva Merrell‘s 2014 record. She was just off of her lifetime best of 1:49.28 in this event.

Meanwhile, Foelske is a German dual-citizen who, like Ulett, also rocks the butterfly races (54.31 in the 100, 1:58.56 in the 200). Coming into the meet, Foelske’s best in the 200y free was a 1:52.01 from February, so going sub-1:50 tonight is big for her.

So if a swimmer is a German native is she now a USA citizen? Other wise how would they break a NAG for it states the swimmers have to be USA citizens?

Former Swim Coach – she’s actually a dual citizen, and was born in New Jersey. I’ve updated the above to make it more clear that she’s got dual citizenship.

this is not the Georgia age group championships. It took place at the eastern section southern zone (essz) age group championships.
