AGUA Championship Time Trial Updates
Great work to all of our swimmers at this weekend's Championship Time Trial! AGUA athletes raced to many new triumphs and achievements.

Bruce Qian and Dylan Rhee led the way for a combined three AGUA team records. Bruce's 50 butterfly time of 29.30 broke the previous 9-10 boys mark from 2010 and currently ranks as the fifth-fastest time in the country.
Dylan posted two new team records in the Men's Open 100 and 200 breaststroke events. Dylan's times of 54.72 and 1:57.06 broke his own marks formerly set in 2019.

We had many first-time qualifiers for Junior Olympics, Senior Metropolitan Championships, Eastern Zone Sectionals, Futures Championships and Winter Junior Nationals. Be sure to keep an eye on Instagram this week to meet all of these qualifiers!
