CLEARWATER, Florida, March 27. AT the NASA Junior National Championship Cup in Clearwater, Fla., 14-year-old professional swimmer Michael Andrew clipped his own 13-14 National Age Group record in the 50-yard free with a 19.76.

Andrew's time beat his previous record of 19.85 set earlier this year, which had been the first sub-20 by a 14-and-under.

Andrew and his family told Swimming World at NCSA Junior Nationals last week that he's pretty much focused in on the 15-16 National Age Group records as goals, since he'll be aging up in a few weeks. There's little doubt he'll have the 50-yard free 15-16 mark in his sights, as he's just .22 off of it already. Ryan Hoffer of Scottsdale Aquatics holds that mark with a 19.54 from a year ago.


Andrew then dropped the 100-yard fly 13-14 NAG with a 47.23 during finals as well, downing the 47.40 he recently set as well. Alex Vicente's 46.99 15-16 NAG is his next target.

Last night, Andrew already crushed his own NAG in the 200-yard IM with a 1:45.29, beating the former mark if 1:47.42 set at the NCSA Junior Nationals just a week ago.
