Day four of the 2014 NCSA Summer Junior National Championships in Indianapolis, IN ended with four of eight individual championship records lowered on the night.

The first record breaker of the evening was Sydney Sell of Lakeside Swim Team. Sell’s time of 1:02.95 bettered Hannah Whitely’s 2013 record time of 1:03.57. On the men’s side of things, Delaware Swim Team’s David Crossland took down a decade old mark in the 100 back with a time of 56.74.  The sixteen-year-old bested a 2004 mark of 56.81 swam by David Russell. 

The women’s 400 free saw Abby Jagdfeld crush the championship record. The Purdue commit’s time of 4:14.68 bettered the record time of 4:17.47 set by Jessie Gvozdas last year.  Jagdfeld is coming off a successful night three performance in which she bested her own 200 free championship record.

In the men’s 100 free, Redbird Swim Club’s Jacob Miller swam to a championship record time of 50.77. The Louisville commit has been swimming out of his shoes in Indy, taking down the 400 IM record last night.

Other event winners included:

Allyson McHugh in the women’s 200 breast with a time of 2:35.53.

Phillip Willet in the men’s 200 breast at 2:19.20.

Madison Boswell in the women’s 100 fly with a mark of 1:01.22, just edging out Asia Seidt who finished second in 1:01.35.

Nicholas McGarry in the men’s 100 fly with a time of 55.37. The top six swimmers were separated by just over three-tenths of a second.

The session closed with the men’s 800 free relay, in which we saw a tie for first.

The Redbird Swim Club quartet of Jared Schimmelpfenning (1:56.06), Steven Fishman (1:56.99), Andrew Loy (1:56.74) and Jake Miller (1:53.14) and the Clippers Swimming squad of Michael Summme (1:57.47), Austin Haney (1;56.23), Zach Smith (1:55.15) and Brendan Meyer (1:54.08) tied for the NCSA title at 7:42.93.
