The boys of the Nation’s Capital Swim Club continued their tear through the National Age Group (NAG) record books at the 2015 NCSA Junior National meet, going 3:12.50 to break records in the 400 yard medley relay.
The team of John Shebat, Carsten Vissering, Andrew Seliskar and James Jones broke their own 15-18 NAG in the event by just .08 seconds. The previous record was set at this very meet one year ago by the same foursome.
Last year, Vissering and Jones were still 16, so the team couldn’t set the 17-18 record. This year, with all four boys in the new age bracket, the foursome took down SwimMAC’s 3:13.70 set back in 2013.
Heres a look at the splits on NCAP’s new relay record and the 15-18 record set last year:
|NCAP 2015||NCAP 2014|
|John Shebat||48.24||John Shebat||49.22|
|Carsten Vissering||52.89||Carsten Vissering||52.87|
|Andrew Seliskar||46.88||Andrew Seliskar||46.38|
|James Jones||44.49||James Jones||44.11|
The big difference came on Shebat’s leg, which was nearly a full second faster than last year. The other three were just a tick off their 2014 splits.
All four are big-time Division I prospects. Shebat will head to Texas next year, Seliskar to Cal and Vissering to USC. Jones is still a high school junior, but will be one of the nation’s top sprint recruits next fall.
