Feyerick dashed ahead of the competition to stop the clock at 24.22 at NCAP’s own invitational last December overturning the previous mark of 24.56 set by Destin Lasco in 2014.

Feyerick holds the top U.S. ranking for his age group in six different events and has been named the PVS Swimmer of the Year for the past three years (ages 9-11) by the Potomac Valley.
