The final day of the 2019 California SCS Junior Olympics featured a slew of relays, and the 13-14 boys from the Irvine Novaquatics took full advantage of the heavy relay slate by downing three different LCM National Age Group Records, two of which had been set just last week.
That record previously stood at 3:37.77 and already belonged to NOVA. Owen Kao, Justin Nguyen, Andrew Koustik, and Hutcher Hitchens had owned that recored since 2014.
The next record to go was the 400m medley relay, where Schott and Cai swam again, joined by Matthew Lou and Christopher Leung, and the four combined for a 3:58.40, knocking over two seconds off the previous best of 4:00.78.
- 1:01.70 – Mitchell Schott (Back)
- 1:06.69 – Matthew Lou (Breast)
- 57.36 – Christopher Leung (Fly)
- 52.55 – Allen Cai (Free)
This record had barely been around for a week, as it was set just last weekend by the Saratasota Tsunami team of Evan Keogh, Luis Junquiera, Dimiter Zafirov, and Liam Hearty.
Finally, Grulke, Chang, Schott, Cai combined to go 7:54.15 in the 800m free relay, taking over a second and a half off a record which again had been set by Sarasota (Junquiera, Keogh, Frank Runge, and Zafirov)last weekend.
