Miriam Sheehan, 10, of the Phoenix Swim Club lowered her own 10-and-under U.S. National Age Group record in the 50-meter fly at the Arizona Long Course Open in Chandler, Ariz.

Sheehan clocked an official time of 30.13 at the meet, clearing her previous record of 30.43 from the Phoenix Spring Invitational in May.  That swim surpassed the 2007 record of 30.56 set by Ella Eastin.

Tonight, Sheehan beat the entire assembled field in the 50 fly, including some 18-year-olds.

Sheehan also owns the 50-meter back NAG with a time of 32.30.

Sheehan also won the women’s 50-meter back in a time of 32.65, just off her NAG, while also taking second in the 50-meter breast with a 38.82.
