This morning, Regan Smith of Riptide Swim Team flew past the existing National Age Group record in the 13-14 women’s 100-SCY butterfly while swimming at the 2016 Speedo Winter Junior Championships West.

Smith, 14, stopped the clock at a sizzling 52.22 to smoke past Tristen Ulett’s 52.97 from earlier in 2016.


  • Smith (Dec 2016): 24.45/27.77 – 52.22

Smith’s previous best time in the 100 fly-SCY was a 54.29 from last December’s Junior Nationals. With her first NAG record as a 13-14 year old, Smith now owns a total of four NAG records to her name. As an 11-12 year old she set NAG records in the 50 (25.69r) and 100 (54.21) and the 100 fly (54.73).

Tonight she dominated the 100 butterfly once again, taking down her own National Age Group Record for 13- and 14-year-olds set this morning, the meet record, and the 52-second barrier in an an astonishing 51.73. She had a close race to gold, however, thanks to Aquazot Swim Club’s Eva Merrell. Merrell who hung tight with Smith until the last five yards, a race good enough for silver and for a 51.93. The two leaders were followed by QuickSilver Swim Club’s Lauren Green with a 52.71 for the bronze.
