SwimMAC Carolina Girls Break Two More 17-18 NAG Relay Records; Now Hold All 10 in the Category

The girls from SwimMAC Carolina have broken a pair of National Age Group Records at the 2014 Tar Heel States meet on Sunday afternoon, which joins the 15-18 400 medley relay record that they set on Saturday.

First, the team of Kathleen BakerCaitlin CasazzaElsa Welshofer, and Lauren Rhodes combined for a 1:39.40 in the 200 yard medley relay, which breaks the King Aquatic Club-held record of 1:40.16 set at Winter Junior Nationals.


  • Baker – 24.49
  • Casazza – 28.35
  • Welshofer – 23.73
  • Rhodes – 22.83

This record was prime to go down, as a different group of SwimMAC 15-16’s (that included Baker and Casazza) were actually faster in the 200 yard medley relay last year, but were simply ineligible to break this 17-18 mark because they were too young.

SwimMAC’s relay of Baker, Maija Roses, Alysa Marsh, and Rhodes still hold the overall 15-18 record in 1:39.27.

Following that swim, the SwimMAC girls swam a 1:31.05 in the 200 yard freestyle relay. There, the same relay combined to touch in 1:31.05, which improved upon the 1:31.82 done by the Dynamo Swim Club in 2013 as the new 17-18 record.


  • Baker – 22.63
  • Casazza – 23.06
  • Welshoffer – 22.77
  • Rhodes 22.59

The overall 15-18 record is once again a tad faster, at 1:30.13 by the Carmel Swim Club in 2013.

In total, between their boys’ and girls’ teams, this completes a total SwimMAC Carolina sweep of the 17-18 yards National Age Group Records for relays – once these are ratified, they will hold all 10.

It helps when swimmers move in and not from clubs next door.
