Swimming at the long course Speedo Sectionals in Plantation, Florida, Flood Aquatics’ Joshua Zuchowski has taken down two National Age Group Records: the 200 and 400 IMs for 11-12 boys.

Destin Lasco previously held both the 11-12 boys long course marks.

Friday Zuchowski destroyed the old 400 IM mark, whacking six seconds from Lasco’s time, swum in 2014. Zuchowski posted a 4:45.09 while the old time was a 4:51.03.

Zuchowski’s splits:

  • Fly 1:05.27
  • Back 1:12.69
  • Breast 1:22.17
  • Free 1:04.96

Lasco’s splits:

  • Fly: 1:07.64
  • Back 1:13.03
  • Breast: 1:26.62
  • Free 1:03.74

Saturday morning Zuchowski returned to once again take down a National mark in prelims. He swam a 2:14.93, just faster than Lasco’s 2:15.33.

Zuchowski’s splits:

  • Fly: 29.55
  • Back: 34.55
  • Breast: 39.85
  • Free: 30.98

Lasco’s splits:

  • Fly 30.14
  • Back 32.50
  • Breast: 42.01

Lasco now still holds the 11-12 boys long course 200 backstroke mark at 2:10.39. He also has the 13-14 boys short course 200 freestyle record (1:38.24). These are Zuchoswki’s first National marks.
