On the first night of the 2021 YMCA Swimming Festival – Brown Deer site, hosts Schroeder Y broke the YMCA National Records in both the boys and girls 200 medley relays. The women’s relay went first, shattering the previous record of 1:40.99 with their time of 1:38.94. Alana Berlin, Tori Brostowitz, Megan Hartlieb, and Sailor Whowell teamed up for that record-breaking relay.
Berlin led the squad off in 24.89, which was essentially a tie with her personal best of 24.82, swum just a few weeks ago. Brostowitz then dove in for a 27.26 on the breast leg, Hartlieb clocked a 24.02 fly split, and Whowell anchored in 22.77.
Schroeder was actually the 2nd team to break the men’s 200 medley relay record last night, as GSCY broke the record with a 1:28.66 at the Voorhes, NJ site of the meet. Being an hour ahead, that happened before Schroeder Y came through and posted a 1:28.53. Ziyad Saleem, Owen Miller, Jack Lustig, and Ben Meulemans teamed up for Schroeder Y to break that record. Saleem led off in a personal best of 21.78, dipping under 22 seconds for the first time in his career.
Here is a split comparison between GSCY and Schroeder’s record-breaking swims last night:
|Backstroke||Jack Alexy – 21.72||Ziyad Saleem – 21.78|
|Breaststroke||Matt Fallon – 24.31||Owen Miller – 24.81|
|Butterfly||Trent Russano – 22.15||Jack Lustig – 22.07|
|Freestyle||Rob Alexy – 20.48||Ben Meulemans – 19.87|
As the splits show, Schroeder’s advantage over Greater Somerset came in the back half of the race, particularly on Meulemans’ anchor leg. GSCY outsplit Schroeder by half a second on the breast leg.
