Joey Campagnola Breaks Two Florida LSC Records for 11-12 Boys

Over the past two months, 12-year-old Joey Campagnola of West Florida Lightning Aquatics (WFLA) in Largo, Florida, broke a pair of short course yards records for the Florida LSC. At the team’s Halloween meet in October, he swam a 2:16.75 in the 200 breast and a 1:57.58 in the 200 IM. Most significantly, that 1:57 in the 200 IM makes Campagnola the fourth-fastest 11-12 boy in U.S. history, and he sits less than two seconds off Josh Zuchowski’s National Age Group record of 1:55.75 set back in 2017.

Also at the meet, Campagnola swam a 4:15.16 in the 400 IM that ranks him 10th all-time among 11-12 boys and less than eight seconds off Zuchowski’s NAG record of 4:07.81. His 2:00.96 in the 200 fly ranks him 22nd all-time in the age group, and his 500 free (4:49.34) ranks him 24th. Campganola is also among the fastest 50 boys in U.S. history in the 200 back and 100 fly.

Campagnola will age up to 13-14 sometime in the spring, so he should have another chance to drop time and pursue some NAG records over the next several months before the bar is raised in the next age group.
