Miriam Sheehan took down two more National Age Group Records at the 2015 Far Western Championships in San Jose, California. Sheehan first lowered her own mark in the 50-meter fly to a 29.48 in prelims on Saturday. Breaking records has been a common trend for Sheehan, and she didn’t break it out on the final day of the meet.

Today, she bested her 50-meter back record with a 32.22 in prelims. At finals, she turned around and dropped it to a 32.18. She won the event by nearly three seconds.

She also bested her record in the 100-meter fly with a 1:07.42 first place finish at finals. Sheehan dropped over a full second from her prelims swim, which was just off her lifetime best. Her splits at finals were stellar:

50 – 31.25

100 – 1:07.42 (36.17)

Sheehan nearly missed her 100-meter back record if 1:09.36 on Thursday, and ended up with a 1:09.47. She holds four long course records in the 50 fly, 100 fly, 50 back, and 100 back, while also holding the short course 50 fly NAG record.
