Swimming out of lane 1 in a time trial, SwimMAC had a lane and had a chance. Kiley Wilhelm, Grace Rainey, Madeline Menkhaus, and Morgan Razewski combined to take down the 13-14 NAG record in the 4×100 medley relay. The old record was held by a quartet from Nashville Aquatic Club, including standout sisters Alex and Gretchen Walsh, along with Ella Nelson and Lauren Hurt.
SwimMAC tore through NAC’s old mark, going 4:14.26 to take over two seconds off the old record of 4:16.34.
You can check out the comparative splits in the table below:
|NAC 2016||SwimMAC 2018|
|BACK||A. Walsh 1:02.13||Wilhelm 1:03.22|
|BREAST||Nelson 1:12.65||Rainey 1:12.21|
|FLY||G. Walsh 1:02.18||
|FREE||Hurt 59.39||Razewski 57.21|
The real difference maker was the anchor leg — Morgan Razewski sprinted home with a very strong 57.21, essentially accounting for the vast majority of the drop from the old record. Razewski, this morning in prelims, posted a lifetime best 57.91 in the 100 free to place 66th overall, and was the 2nd-fastest swimmer born 2004 or later.
