Destin Lasco Returns Fire, Captures 11-12 100-Yard Back National Age Group Mark

SEWELL, New Jersey, March 15. A day after Morris County’s Vinny Marciano was the first 12-and-under to clear 53 seconds in the 11-12 100-yard backstroke, Destin Lasco lowered the U.S. National Age Group record at the Middle Atlantic Junior Olympics.

In an unofficial time of 52.32, Lasco took down Marciano’s record of 52.47 set at the New Jersey Swimming Junior Olympics last night.

Although Michael Andrew is blazing a trail ahead of these two in the 13-14 age division, there’s little doubt the Lasco/Marciano duo could take the backstroke national age group records lower for years to come.

Splits to come when results are official.
