The King County Aquatic Club boys threw down a new 13-14 National Age Group Record in the 400 medley relay at the 2016 Washington State Senior Short Course Championships. Their 3:28.14 done by Nathan Hayes, Ethan Dang, Gabe Nickels, and Tyler Lu just clipped the former record, which KING’s Lu, Dang, Vladislav Elizarov, and Nickolas Elizarov had previously set at 3:28.20.
Dang and Lu were members of the former record-setting relay and today’s record-setting relay. Dang rolled to a 55.48 on the breast split this time, which was a few tenths faster than the split he posted last time around. Lu, on the other hand, made the switch from back to free. He was the big difference maker, splitting over a second faster than the free split on their previous relay with his 47.26.
|Relay||Back Split||Breast Split||Fly Split||Free Split||Final Time|
|KING December 2016||52.66 (Hayes)||55.48 (Dang)||52.74 (Nickels)||47.26 (Lu)||3:28.14|
|KING March 2016||52.66 (Lu)||55.82 (Dang)||51.17 (V. Elizarov)||48.55 (N. Elizarov)||3:28.20|
In addition to their new record, the KING boys won the gold. Their team actually swept the podium places, with the ‘C’ squad taking 2nd in 3:30.65 and the ‘E’ squad taking 3rd in 3:34.54.
