Curl Burke’s Cassidy Bayer Lowers Dana Vollmer National Age Group Record

COLLEGE PARK, Maryland, July 14. AT the PVS Senior Long Course Championships held on the campus of the University of Marlyand last night, Cassidy Bayer, 12, of Curl Burke, lowered a U.S. National Age Group record in the 100-meter fly.

Bayer won the open senior event with a 1:02.31, in front of Curl Burke teammate Kaitlin Pawlowicz (1:03.50). Bayer's time lowered the girls 11-12 100-meter fly U.S. National Age Group record previously held by Dana Vollmer. Vollmer posted a time of 1:02.49 back in 2001. Vollmer has gone on to an illustrious career in the sport as a multiple-time Olympian.

Last month, Bayer downed the 11-12 girls 200-meter fly U.S. National Age Group record with a 2:18.61 in the event at a Potomac Marlins meet. That effort eclipsed the 2:19.32 set by North Baltimore's Courtney Kalisz back in 2003. Kalisz retired from the sport after college, and has been pursuing a DJ career in California.
