On a weekend dominated by college conference meets, Michael Andrew quietly added another National Age Group record to his collection at a Speedo Champions Series meet in College Station, Texas.
The 14-year-old Andrew went 1:46.29 to win the B final of the 200-yard butterfly, breaking the 11-year-old NAG record set by Ricky Berens. That time was 1:48.24.
Andrew, who owns NAG records in the 100s of all 4 strokes as well as the 200 IM, now appears to be turning his attention to the longer races, starting with this 200 fly. He also swam the 200 back Friday morning, but was disqualified in prelims. In addition, he’s slated to swim the 200 free and 200 and 400 IM later on in the meet, as well as the 100 fly, 100 back and 50 free.
Andrew is closing in on his 15th birthday, so it makes sense he’s trying out some other events to try and stamp his name on the 13-14 record book a few more times before moving up to a new age bracket. The Speedo Series meet will continue through Sunday night in College Station. Results are available on Meet Mobile, listed under “USA Swimming Speedo Champions Series.”
