MIDDLETOWN, Connecticut, June 1. AT the CAC Long Course Age Group Qualifier at Wesleyan University, Meghan Lynch, 10, took down her third national age group record of the year.

During finals of the girls 10-and-under 100-meter breaststroke, Greenwich YMCA’s Lynch powered her way to a 1:18.67 for the win and the 10-and-under national age group mark. She split the swim 37.19, 41.48 en route to a 1:18.67 that broke Annie Zhu’s 2005 record of 1:19.11.

Lynch had a full weekend here in Middletown, winning the 200-meter free (2:17.97), 200-meter IM (2:33.76), 100-meter free (1:04.90), 50-meter fly (33.04), 50-meter breast (36.98), 100-meter back (1:15.80), 50-meter free (29.52), 100-meter fly (1:14.74) and the 50-meter back (35.30) in that order with her 100-meter breast occurring shortly before the 50 back finish.

Earlier this year, Lynch already broke the 10-and-under short course yard records in the 50 breast (31.73) and 100 breast (1:08.07).
