4/6/05 - I guess the evening must have been getting a little boring for the Wilton Family YMCA (Connecticut) Men's 400 Free Relay Team. So they decided to get the crowd on their feet as they broke the record (old record: 3:03.68) with a time of 3:03.14! Andrew Trepp, Philip Baity, Robert Hannigan and Jeffrey Sudbury of course won the event and will receive their medals on Thursday.
4/6/05 - Second day of the meet, Felicia Lee, Monclair YMCA, New Jersey, once again proved that even at 12 years old she IS and will be a star! In the 100 Fly prelims in the morning she SHATTERED the YMCA National Age Group record of 58.15 (which has stood since 1982) with a time of 56.88 going into finals in 5th place. But again, Felicia saved some of her best stuff for later, in finals she broke her own record with a time of 56.16 and finished in 2nd Place. Way to go Felicia!
4/5/05 - Our news of the day? 12 year old Felicia Lee from Montclair YMCA in New Jersey tied for 8th place in prelims in the 200 IM with a time of 2:07.74. WOW! Well, she wasn't done wowing us - in the swim-off she swam a 2:06.45 to not only give her that 8th place spot, but to also break the YMCA National Age Group record of 2:07.12. Her place at finals -- 7th!
