Virginia Gators Squad Snipes 15-16 Girls 200 Free Relay NAG

After setting a new 15-16 NAG record in the 200 medley relay, the same four from the Virginia Gators teamed up again later in last night’s session to set a new 15-16 NAG record in the 200 free relay. Both records were previously held by a SwimMAC relay. Read more about their medley relay NAG here.

COMPARATIVE SPLITS

SWIMMAC (OLD RECORD) GATORS (NEW RECORD)
Kathleen Baker (23.10) Olivia Bray (23.19)
Nora McCullagh (22.89) Caroline Kulp (22.99)
Caitlin Casazza (23.26) Emma Muzzy (22.53)
Lauren Rhodes (22.59) Whittney Hamilton (22.28)
TOTAL:  1:31.84  1:30.99

Both Emma Muzzy and Whittney Hamilton went faster than any one split on the SwimMAC relay– Hamilton was a tad faster on the 200 medley anchor leg, but her 22.28 was still the fastest split and an impressive one, considering her best time coming into this meet was a 23.08. The foursome took a sizable chunk out of the old relay, a 1:31.84, lowering the mark to a 1:30.99.

Olivia Bray and Whittney Hamilton are still just 15 years old, while both Emma Muzzy and Caroline Kulp are 16. Muzzy had an excellent prelims session today, going 1:59.63 for the top 200 IM time of the morning and adding a 1:03.31 in the 100 breast and a 53.89 in the 100 back as well. Bray, meanwhile, posted a 52.77 in the 100 back and a 24.22 in the 50 fly for top seeds in both races. Hamilton went 24.58 for the 2nd seed in the 50 fly A final, while Kulp qualified for the A final in the 100 breast with Muzzy.
