WOMEN’S 400 MEDLEY RELAY
Meet Record: 3:32.19 – Elmbrook Swim Club (2022)

Elmbrook Swim Club won the women’s 400 medley relay last night at the 2023 NCSA Spring Championships, breaking their own meet record in the process. On top of the NCSA Record, Elmbrook’s previous meet record mark of 3:32.19 also stood as the girls 15-18 National Age Group Record (NAG). With their performance last night, EBSC clipped their own NAG by 0.09 seconds.
Maggie Wanezek (52.18), Lucy Thomas (58.70), Campbell Stoll (51.57), and Reese Tiltmann (49.65) teamed up to win the relay in 3:32.10, touching first by over six seconds. The first three legs of last night’s relay were the same as last year but the anchors were different. Last year, Abby Wanezek, who is now a freshman at the University of Wisconsin, anchored the relay, while last night it was Reese Tiltmann.
Here is a split comparison between Elmbrook Swim Club’s NAG from last night and their record from last year.
|Leg||Elmbrook Swim Club 2023 NCSA Spring Champs||Elmbrook Swim Club 2022 NCSA Spring Champs|
|Backstroke||Maggie Wanezek (52.18)||Maggie Wanezek (51.89)|
|Breaststroke||Lucy Thomas (58.70)||Lucy Thomas (59.67)|
|Butterfly||Campbell Stoll (51.57)||Campbell Stoll (51.73)|
|Freestyle||Reese Tiltmann (49.65)||Abby Wanezek (48.90)|
Comparing the splits to last year is actually very interesting. Maggie Wanezek was a bit slower on the lead-off than last year. Her 100 back on the relay last night was actually her slowest of the meet. Earlier in the meet, Wanezek swam a 52.03 in prelims of the individual 100 back then clocked a 51.71 for second in finals.
Reese Tiltmann‘s anchor was a bit slower than Abby Wanezek‘s last year as well. Nonetheless, 49.65 was a great split for Tiltmann, as she swam a lifetime best of 50.50 in the individual 100 free earlier in the meet.
On the other hand, Lucy Thomas was way faster on the breast leg this year than she was last year, splitting 58.70, which is almost a full second faster than she was last year. Even though she was much faster than last year, there’s reason to believe Thomas could have been even faster than she was last night. She notably broke the meet record a few days ago in the individual 100 breast, posting a 58.65, which was 0.05 seconds faster than she swam on the relay.
Campbell Stoll was very good on the fly leg as well, swimming a 51.57, which was 0.16 seconds faster than she went on the relay last year. The relay split was also just a bit faster than Stoll swam in the individual 100 fly earlier in the meet (51.65).
