During the first night session of the 2019 NCSA Summer Junior Nationals, the 4-month-old girls 13-14 LCM 200 free relay NAG got taken down by the Sandpipers of Nevada girls.
The 13-14 quartet of Arabella Sims, Katie Grimes, Paige Kuwata, and Audrey Yu placed 7th overall in the 200 free relay event with a time of 1:47.13. That time narrowly clipped the former NAG of 1:47.25, held by Phoenix Swimming from March 2019.
|Sandpipers of Nevada (8/6/19)||Phoenix Swimming (3/17/19)|
|Arabella Sims||26.55||Michaela Chokureva||26.80|
|Katie Grimes||26.91||Alexis Martino||26.78|
|Paige Kuwata||27.73||Megan Reich||27.18|
|Audrey Yu||25.94||Malia Amuan||26.49|
Lead-off Sims shaved almost a second off her lifetime best to start off her relay. Teammates Grimes and Kuwata continued the momentum as they raced high school competitors. Anchor Yu blasted a sub-26 split and aided her relay to chip 0.12s off the months-old NAG.
Earlier in the meet, Katie Grimes and Arabella Sims made their marks in the 800 free timed finals by scoring the 2020 Trials cuts, finishing 2-3 respectively, and putting up two of the top 20 times in 13-14 age group history.
