X Rose Sets State Records, Hits #12 All-Time 11-12 50 BR At Hawaii Age Champs

12-year-old X Rose (listed as Nathaniel Rose in results) broke three state records, including two highly-ranked swims in 11-12 age group history at Hawaii’s Age Group SCY Championships.

His 100 breast now ranks #81 in age group history. Rose swims for the Kona Dolphins Swim Club.Rose also won the 200 breast (2:26.8), 100 fly (59.14), 50 free (23.47), 100 free (51.69) and 200 free (1:57.54). Those were all lifetime-bests, outside of the 100 fly.

In the girls 200 back, 17-year-old Alana Barthel and 16-year-old Grace Monahan both went under the 15-18 state record. Barthel, swimming for Aulea Swim Club, won in 1:59.30, breaking a Jasmine Mau state record. Monahan was 1:59.98, also under the old record.
