SwimMAC opened the first night of the USA Swimming Summer Championships with a bang, swimming to a new National Age Group Record in the men’s 17-18 400 meter freestyle relay.
Dynamo Swim Club (2019)
|Swimmer 1||Tim Connery (50.22)||
Brooks Curry (50.37)
|Swimmer 2||Logan Zucker (50.41)||
Cam Auerbach (50.89)
|Swimmer 3||Cam Abaqueta (51.52)||

Every swimmer on SwimMAC’s relay, with the exception of Abaqueta, was significantly faster than the swimmers on the Dynamo relay. However, the real difference-maker for SwimMac came on the final leg of the relay, where Nelson posted a sub-50 split to put them a half second ahead of Dynamo’s anchor. Notably, that Dynamo relay included LSU standout Brooks Curry, who just won an Olympic gold medal as a prelims member of the men’s 4×100 freestyle relay for the United States.
Both Connery and Nelson swam the relay coming off of a tight race in the individual 100 freestyle, where Connery took first in a time of 49.36, while Nelson tied for second in 49.86. Connery’s time from that race ranks him #12 all-time in the 17-18 age group, while Nelson’s time ranks #31 all-time in the same age group.
Connery is currently ranked #3 in SwimSwam’s rankings of the high school class of 2021, while Nelson is the #1 ranked recruit in the class of 2022. With his #1 ranking, Nelson is committed to attend Texas A&M, while Connery is set to attend Texas in the fall.
Zucker, a Michigan commit, is one of the “best of the rest” recruits from the class of 2022, while the 17-year-old Abaqueta recently committed to Florida’s class of 2026.
