One day after beating a Michael Phelps meet record in the 50 fly at the Speedo Winter Invite, 10-year-old North Baltimore swimmer Daniel Branon won all three 10-and-under boys’ events and took down another mark set by the greatest swimmer of all time.

Brannon finished first in the 50 back (35.52), 100 free (1:07.31) and 100 fly (1:09.82). His time in the 100 fly smashed the Phelps meet record (1:11.89) set back in 1995.

Meanwhile, North Baltimore’s Angel Kadoorie matched Branon in winning all three 10-and-under girls’ events contested on the day: the 50 fly (38.42), 100 free (1:11.72) and 100 fly (1:17.30).

Long Island’s Brooke Armstrong won the 11-12 girls’ 100 free in 1:02.84, with teammate Prais Okodogbe winning the 50 fly (30.19). Also for LIAC, Briana Racanello won the 200 IM (2:34.18). North Baltimore’s Campbell Chandler won the 100 back in 1:10.77.

Long Island again dominated the 11-12 boys’ events, but their two-day win streak was broken as Charlie Kulp won the 100 free for Berkeley in 1:02.83. But LIAC still had three event winners on the day, with Ethan Nus in the 50 fly (30.91), Matthew Peitler in the 100 back (1:10.80) and Aidan McCarthy in the 200 IM (2:32.91).

Berkeley’s Kelsey Katt placed first in the 13-14 girls’ 400 free in 4:35.64, and BAC’s Lily Barisonek was victorious in the 100 breast (1:16.86). LIAC’s Kiki Kennedy won the 100 fly for that age group in 1:07.28, and NBAC’s Kim Kelly got the win in the 200 back (2:27.83).

North Baltimore won all four 13-14 boys’ events, with Sam Kamdin leading the way with 400 free (4:27.38) and 200 back (2:19.14) triumphs. Teammate Ryan Merani broke a six-year-old meet record with a 59.00 to win the 100 fly, and Brody Schrepfer won the 100 breast (1:12.69).
