SwimAtlanta shattered the mixed 400-meter freestyle relay 15-18 NAG record by more than four seconds on Saturday at the 2022 Georgia Senior State Championships in Athens. 

The quartet of Sebastien Sergile (51.76), Katie Christopherson (55.22), Tristan DenBrok (52.61), and Gigi Johnson (55.79) combined for a total time of 3:35.38, crushing the previous record of 3:39.52 set by Tide Swimming last year at the ICSA Summer Senior Blast. Johnson, a Stanford commit, will be joining former record holders Kayla Wilson and Sam Tadder on The Farm next month. 

Splits Comparison, Mixed 400 Free Relay NAG Records

SwimAtlanta – July, 2022 Tide Swimming – July, 2021
1st 100 Free Sebastien Sergile, 51.76 Kayla Wilson, 55.47
2nd 100 Free Katie Christopherson, 55.22 Colin Mamaril, 53.96
3rd 100 Free Tristan DenBrok, 52.61 Samantha Tadder, 57.77
4th 100 Free Gigi Johnson, 55.79 Ryan Hillery, 52.32
400 Free Total 3:35.38 3:39.52

Sergile led off about half a second slower than his personal-best 51.18, but he was still the only swimmer of either quartet to post a sub-52 split. The 18-year-old is slated to enroll at the University of Virginia next month as the No. 6 recruit in the Class of 2022. 

Christopherson, 16, is uncommitted. In February, she clocked a 1:56.72 in the 200-yard IM to reset a record held by two-time Olympian Kathleen Hersey

DenBrok is a Georgia commit who split more than a second faster than his personal-best 100 free time.

Wow! A mixed relay record that doesn’t have the Mason Manta Rays associated with it! 🙂

Congrats to the kids from Swim Atlanta. That is a great way for the seniors to end their junior careers.
