Charlie Kulp of Berkeley Aquatic Club dominated the 10-and-under boys’ age group Sunday afternoon at the CeraVe Invitational in Piscataway, N.J. Kulp won three more events: the 50 breast (37.38), 100 free (1:08.91) and 100 fly (1:16.20) to make it eight wins on the weekend.

Kulp also won the 50 free and 100 back on Friday and the 50 fly, 200 IM and 200 free Saturday. His only hiccup occurred in Friday’s 100 breast, where he finished fifth.

For the 11-12 boys, Bluefish’s Landon Him won the 50 fly (28.96), 100 back (1:06.29) and 200 IM (2:24.68). Those wins made it six for the meet for Him, who previously won the 50 back and 50 breast Friday and the 100 fly Saturday.

Also for the 10-and-under swimmers, Long Island’s Briana Rancanello won both the 100 free (1:12.09) and 100 fly (1:18.35). In the 11-12 division, Berkeley’s Emma Yang won the girls’ 100 free (1:04.19) and 50 fly (31.06) for the girls.
