It was going to take a monumental effort for anybody to derail the TAC Titans 13-14 girls and their National Age Group Record freight train this weekend at the North Carolina Age Group Swimming Championships. The group broke 2 relay national records and an individual national record through the first half of Saturday’s finals session, and looked lined up for another in the 400 medley relay.
But SwimMAC Carolina stepped in front with a big ‘not so fast’ in the timed final of the event. While TAC was well under the old National Age Group Record in 3:42.13, the 13-14 girls from SwimMAC were even faster, swimming a 3:40.43, to take the record. That swim was a whopping 4.34 seconds faster than the old National Age Group Record in the event.
The SwimMAC relay was made up of Morgan Razewski, Grace Rainey, Kiley Wilhelm, and Maya Gendzel, all 14-year olds. TAC’s 2nd-place relay of Abigail Clark, Keelan Cotter, Claire Curzan, and Taylor Morris were the same four swimmers as swam on the team’s other 2 record-setting relays.
