To put into perspective just how fast that relay is: the quartet averaged splits of 30.2 across their foursome.

In total, the relay accounted for 3 of the 10 fastest 50 freestylers in the 10 & under age group this season coming into the weekend.
Marlins of Raleigh Splits:
- Elgard – 30.29
- Light – 28.94
