Gaby VanBrunt from Georgia Coastal Aquatic Team won 9 individual 11-12 girls events and broke 3 Georgia state records over the course of the meet. VanBrunt won the 50 fly with a 28.65, establishing a new 11-12 state record. That time is 9th all-time among 11-12 girls. She also won the 100 fly in record-fashion, touching in 1:04.16. That time ranks 25th all-time among 11-12 girls. VanBrunt completed a sweep of the fly events with a win in the 200, finishing in 2:28.60 to drop nearly 6 seconds from her previous best time of 2:34.45.

VanBrunt also took all 3 backstroke events, posting a 31.42 to shave .13 seconds off her personal best. She swam a 1:07.74 to win the 100 back, crushing her previous best time of 1:11.76. In the 200, VanBrunt swam a 2:28.14, marking yet another massive time drop of 11.91 seconds, which makes it both the first time she broke 2:40, and the first time she broke 2:30.

VanBrunt won the 50, 100, and 200 free, breaking the state record in the 100. In the 50, VanBrunt swam a quick 27.37, which was actually slightly off her best time of 27.15. She broke 1:00 for the first time in the 100 free, finishing in 59.56. That came in just under the previous state record of 59.62. VanBrunt’s 200 free came in at 2:10.93 (2:10.11 in prelims), marking another huge time drop from her previous best of 2:17.40.

Yuri Sago, a 10 year old from SwimAtlanta, also broke a GA state record, coming in the 10U 400 free. Sago posted a 4:58.66 to break the 5:00 mark for the first time. He swam a fast front half, posting a first 200 of 2:26.03, and coming home in 2:32.63. Sago also won the 200 free (2:22.50), 50 back (36.12), and 100 back (1:17.13).
