2016 SPEEDO SUMMER SIZZLER
- June 16th-18th, 2016
- Nashville, Tennessee (Nashville Aquatic Club)
- Live results
The girls of the Nashville Aquatic Club broke their second National Age Group (NAG) relay record in as many days, going 4:16.34 in the 400 medley relay.
The medley team was made up of Alex Walsh (14), Ella Nelson (14), Gretchen Walsh (13) and Lauren Hurt (14). That comes one day after that same foursome broke the NAG in the 400 free relay at 3:55.38.
Nashville Aquatic Club already owned this medley relay record, having broken the old North Baltimore Aquatic Club mark last July. The only change to the relay lineup was at butterfly, where the younger Walsh took over for Kallie Chelsvig.
The old NBAC team that held the record previously featured a quartet of future Division I swimmers including future American record-setter Liz Pelton. That record was just 4:20.82, meaning Nashville has now cut 4.5 seconds off the NAG in just under a year.
Here’s a look at the splits between Nashville Aquatic Club’s teams in 2015 and 2016:
