2020 CARY SECTIONALS
Last night at the 2020 Cary Sectionals in North Carolina, a quartet of TAC Titans 16-year-olds took down the 15-16 boys NAG record in the 800 free relay.
The team of Michael Cotter, Lance Norris, David Greeley and Braeden Haughey combined for a 6:36.61 to win the race by almost five seconds and break the record of 6:38.07 set by DART in 2018 at the Winter Junior Championships – West. DART’s record featured a lead-off from Luca Urlando, who was 1:34.38 to really carry that relay.
|DART, 2018||TAC TITANS, 2020|
|Luca Urlando – 1:34.38||Michael Cotter – 1:37.18|
|Connor Daniels – 1:38.08||Lance Norris – 1:39.99|
|Tate Cutler – 1:42.71||David Greeley – 1:41.65|
|Christopher Ranlett – 1:42.90||Braeden Haughey – 1:37.79|
While Urlando and Daniels had a great front-half for DART, Cotter and Haughey were strong bookends and the relay was more consistent overall. Cotter had the best lead-off in the field in Cary.
On DART’s relay, Cutler and Ranlett were just 15.
This swim came in the same session as Haughey and Norris going 1-2 in the 1000 free. Haughey won it in 9:05.39 with Norris clocking a 9:07.39, both dropping big time after coming in with matching 9:15’s.
