Fort Collins Girls Drop a Second Off of 15-18 200 Medley Relay NAG

2017 SPEEDO WINTER JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS – WEST

The quartet of Bayley StewartZoe BartelColeen Gillilan, and Kylee Alons has destroyed their own NAG record for the 15-18 age group in the 200 medley relay at the 2017 U.S. Junior National Championships – West.

The foursome currently holds long course NAG records in the 15-16 400 medley relay and the 15-18 record, both from one swim. All four of them were 15 or 16 in the summer 0f 2016 when they went that time, so the record stands for both age groups. Tonight, though, only Gillilan is still 16. Stewart and Alons are 18, while Bartel is 17.

The old 15-18 NAG record was a 1:38.84, and as all four girls took a bit off of their splits, they were able to produce a significantly faster 1:37.65. They also went under the old meet record, which also belonged to them, albeit a hundredth back at 1:38.85.

Gillilan and Stewart had the biggest drops from their NAG record from the spring, but Gillilan has dropped the most from her split in their old meet record from just about a year ago.

Wow, that is faster than Stanfords breastroke leg on the 2017 200 medley relay by .04 and would have put them .01 from tying with A&M. Bartel will be huge for Stanford

Big drop on a 200- congrats 🎉!!!
