The Spartans Aquatic Club have used 6 swimmers to break 3 National Age Group Relay Records this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia.
Aikins, a UVA commit, broke 20 seconds in the opening round before rattling off three more swims of 20.14, 20.22 and 20.20.
18-year-old Jack Aikins won the boys’ 200 freestyle in a new best time of 1:36.10, and tied his prelim PB to win the 100 backstroke in 47.49.
The 16-year-old took more than four seconds off his best time, moving to 10th all-time in the age group along with breaking Gunnar Bentz’s LSC record.
Nathaniel Stoffle, Preston Lin, Kamal Muhammad and Peter Sacca combined to break the 2015 NAG that was held by an NCAP team with some very familiar names.
In addition to the 200 medley relay NAG, the Spartans also claimed the boys’ 800 free relay in a time of 6:49.19.
University of Georgia Commits Peter Sacca and Hailey Galbraith both won several events during Spartan Aquatic Club’s duel meet against Gwinnett Aquatics.
Sacca has had a remarkable improvement arc since the pandemic hit the United States in March and pools shuttered across the country.
Spartans Aquatic Club wrapped up their 4-day meet on August 9th, their second of the summer, with a flurry of best times.
There were a host of career-best times at the Spartans Aquatic Club’s Red vs Gold meet this month, despite the pandemic training layoff.
Racing in practice suits, a number of Spartans Aquatic Club swimmers are coming out of quarantine faster than they went in.
