The Dayton Raiders’ 200 free relay team consisted of ASU’s Cody Bybee (23.23), Alabama’s Nicholas Perera (23.57), Ohio State’s Josef Pohlmann (23.01), and NC State’s Eric Knowles (23.43).

At the time, Perera and Pohlmann were 17 years old and Bybee and Knowles were 18 years old.

Georgia commit Mcgrady came the closest to matching Pohlmann’s 23.01, the fastest split on the 2017 relay.

Sacca, also a Georgia commit, led off the relay .11 faster than the Dayton Raiders’ lead-off split and handed it to Stoffle, an Auburn commit. Stoffle’s leg was the biggest difference between the Spartans relay and the previous record’s 2nd 50 split of 23.57.

150 23.02 23.01
200 23.05 23.43
Final Time 1:32.43 1:33.24

Spartans Aquatic Club took down three short course yards National Age Group relay records within two days in March, and each one of these swimmers played a role. 

Sacca, Mcgrady, and Beamon broke the 400 free relay NAG with teammate Kamal Muhammad on Friday. 

The next morning, Stoffle, Beamon and Mcgrady took down the 200 free relay NAG with Muhammad. Stoffle and Saca then broke the 400 medley relay NAG with Muhammad and Preston Lin in finals. Together, the six of them now hold a total of five NAG relay records in the 17-18 age group.

That is four quality legs. Not just a single National teamer stud pulling the rest. What a good training group!

Great to know! However, they didn’t break the NAG because they didn’t beat this team!
