Competing at the Texas Long Course Age Group Championships in Austin, the Nitro Swimming boys nearly broke the days old National Age Group Record in the 13-14 800 free relay.
Last week at the Florida Summer Age Group Champs in Orlando the Sarasota Tsunamis set a new NAG in the event in a time of 7:55.79, lowering the 2014 record of 7:58.03 previously held by Irvine Novaquatics.
On Wednesday, the Nitro team of Jeremy Kelly, Logan Walker, Kaden Alarcon and Kelson Flynn missed the record by just over seven-tenths of a second in 7:56.51, making them the second-fastest relay in history.
Sarasota’s team consisted of Luis Gustavo Junqueira, Evan Keogh, Frank Runge, and Dimiter Zafirov.
