RACE FOOTAGE: Greenwich Y’s Meghan Lynch Set 10-And-Under NAGs 50, 100 Breaststroke

WEBSTER, New York, March 28. THE Greenwich YWCA Dolphins Swim Team’s Meghan Lynch, 10, posted her first National Age Group Record of her young career, a 1:08.07 clocking in the 100-yard Breaststroke in the 2014 United States Swimming Eastern Zone Short Course Swimming Championships held at Webster Aquatic Center in Webster, NY.

The 10-year old Greenwich, Connecticut resident shattered the former mark of 1:09.79 held by Annie Zhu, then of the LaGuardia Aquatic Club of New York, NY. Zhu, now a sophomore at the University of Georgia, where she is a four time All American and recently helped the Lady Bulldogs to their sixth national championship title.

Lynch also took down the 50-yard breast record with a 31.73 split in the 100 breast swim. That time beat the 31.82 set by Kaylin Burchell back in 2004.
