Spurred on by the incredible two-year National Age Group Record run that their senior teammates have had, the SwimMAC 15-16’s on Sunday broke the 15-16 record in the 200 free relay on Sunday, also in a time trial at the team’s hosted Tar Heel State meet.
The final time was 1:24.22, with splits of: Graham Weaver (21.51), Connor Long (20.62), Garrett Simpson (21.47), and Brody Heck (20.62).
The old record of 1:24.88 was set by the Claremont Club in 2010, with team members Kevin Coan, Jason Haney, Kyle Coan, and Michael Haney: two sets of brothers.
The newest SwimMAC record setters have been pumped up about their record attempt all weekend, especially after they saw their 17-18 teammates, and training partners, on Saturday break the 800 free relay NAG Record: officially giving the current group at SwimMAC all of the 15-18 and 17-18 relay records. Read more about the 17-18 record here.
This was the first 15-16 record, though, of the group. Brody, the anchor, has a great swimming pedigree: his older brother Logan was on the 200 free relay that broke the 17-18 NAG Record in 2011 and currently swims for North Carolina.
