Day 2 of 2018 Speedo Winter Junior Championships – East ended with a bang as Mason Manta Rays’ Carson Foster (17), Jake Foster (18), Jacob McDonald (16), and Adam Chaney (16) took 1.57 seconds off their seed time to win the boys’ 4×100 medley relay on Thursday night. The quartet came into the meet with a seed time of 3:13.68, already nearly 3 seconds faster than second-seeded SwimMAC Carolina and 3/10 off the meet record, a 3:13.37 set by Palo Alto Stanford in 2015. But the Foster brothers, McDonald, and Chaney took it one step further and crushed the 15-18 National Age Group Record in the event, too. The NAG had been established by Nation’s Capital Swim Club with 3:12.58 at NCSA Spring Championship in March of 2014.
Carson Foster led off with his first sub-47 100 back (his PB was 47.07), going 46.70 to notch the #30 swim of all-time for 17-18 boys. (It’s worth noting that at least 17 of the top 30 times were swum in college meets.) His brother followed with a 52.96 split for the 100 breast (best flat-start time is 53.46). McDonald clocked a 48.54 butterfly (best flat-start is 49.08), and Adam Chaney brought it home with a 42.91 split on the anchor (his fastest flat-start is 44.26).
