SEWELL, New Jersey, January 18. AT the MA Elite Meet being held in Philadelphia at the Gloucester County Institute in Sewell, N.J, 12-year-old Destin Lasco took down another 11-12 U.S. National Age Group record.

This time, Lasco tracked down the 50-yard backstroke mark with a 25.02. Lasco, who represents Pleasantville Aquatics, beat Seth Beer’s 2009 mark of 25.14.

Lasco had a strong 10-and-under career, still holding national age group records in the 50 yard back (27.96) and 100 yard back (59.81) at that level. He also recently took down the 100-yard backstroke national age group mark in the 11-12 age division with a 54.03 live on SwimmingWorld.TV at the Speedo Tom Dolan Invitational last month.
