Curl-Burke Dominates at Eastern Zone Champs, 13-14 Relay Breaks 23 Year-Old NAG Mark

FAIRFAX, Virginia, July 30. THE Curl-Burke Swim Club — which boasts more world record-holders than any other swim club in the world — dominated the Eastern Zone – Section II Championships, held last weekend at George Mason University in Farfax, Virginia.

The meet was highlighted by a national age group record by Curl-Burke's girls 13-14 400 meter freestyle relay, which shattered the old mark set in 1979 by Mission Viejo.

The team of Colleen Law, Katherine Finegan, Leslie Swinley and Christine Nichols finished third, setting a new National Age Group Record of 3:59.12. They broke the 23 year-old record of 4:00.52 held since by Mission Viejo.

Curle-Burke won all three team crowns, in every case more than doubling the score of runner-up NOVA (of Virginia) Aquatics. The team scores:

Combined Team Scores:
1. Curl-Burke Swim Club: 1,649.50
