The month of March is an exciting time across the nation for swimming as collegiate and age group swimmers alike look to wrap up their short course seasons with fast times.

While half of college swimming was coming to a head with the 2017 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships in Indianapolis, 12-year-old Claire Curzan continued to lower 11-12 sprint fly National Age Group (NAG) records.

Curzan, who swims for Raleigh Swimming Association, lowered her own NAG records in both the 50 (24.39) and 100 (54.00) fly while swimming at the 2017 Eastern Zone Age Group Championships in Greensboro, NC last weekend. The two records were set just last month by Curzan, in the same race, at the 2017 North Carolina State SC Age Group Championships.

The 12-year-old is no stranger to NAG Records, however, having now lowered the 100 fly NAG a total of three times within the last four months.

Split Comparisons (100 Fly):

  • December 2016: 25.14/29.43 = 54.57
  • February 2017: 24.66/29.72 = 54.38
  • March 2017: 25.07/28.93 = 54.00

Curzan sits among an elite group of 11-12 girls who have posted sub-55 second swims in the 100 fly, including age group stars Regan Smith and Miriam Sheehan. With her newest 100 fly time, Curzan sits poised to become the first 11-12 girl to post a sub-54 second swim in the 100 fly.
