Elmbrook Swim Club won the women’s 400 medley relay tonight in a time of 4:06.93. With the swim, the squad of Maggie Wanezek (15), Lucy Thomas (15), Campbell Stoll (16), and Abby Wanezek (17) broke their 2nd 15-18 girls National Age Group Record of the week. In a time trial on Thursday, the same squad time trialed the women’s 200 medley relay, shattering that NAG.
Tonight, Elmbrook’s time of 4:06.93 blew away the previous NAG of 4:08.39, which was held by the Fort Collins Area Swim Team squad of Bayley Stewart, Zoe Bartel, Coleen Gillilan, and Kylee Alons from 2016.
Here are Elmbrook’s splits from tonight:
Here is a comparison between Elmbrook’s relay tonight, and Fort Collins’ relay from 2016:
|Elmbrook Swim Club – 8/7/2021||Elmbrook Swim Club – 8/7/2021||Fort Collins Area Swim Team – 8/13/2016||Fort Collins Area Swim Team – 8/13/2016|
|Backstroke||Maggie Wanezek||1:01.63||Bayley Stewart||1:02.86|
|Breaststroke||Lucy Thomas||1:09.79||Zoe Bartel||1:08.61|
|Butterfly||Campbell Stoll||1:00.12||Coleen Gillilan||1:00.24|
|Freestyle||Abby Wanezek||55.39||Kylee Alons||56.68|
The fly splits for both teams were extremely similar, but Elmbrook was much faster on backstroke and freestyle, while Fort Collins was much faster on breaststroke.
Here is a comparison between Elmbrook’s splits from tonight versus each swimmer’s flat-start personal best:

Notably, the relay team’s flat-start personal bests add up to 4:06.08, faster than they actually swam in the relay tonight by 0.85 seconds.
