Mack was the clutch leg for NCAP, swimming faster than anyone at NCSA’s and faster than any one leg on the NCAP or SwimMAC relay. Prior to this swim, SwimMAC held every 15-16 NAG record for girls relays except for the 400 free relay.
NCAP did break the NAG record, but they actually finished 2nd in this event at NCSAs. The team from Long Island Aquatic Club went 7:13.02, about a second faster, but they didn’t break an NAG record because two members of their relay are 17.
