New England Seniors, held at the Boston University Pool on December 15-18, 2011 provided just the right amount of competition for three swimmers to break some NE and NE RES records:
Kaitlyn Harty of GMSC set a record in the 13/14 Girl's 100 Backstroke with a time of 55.90. This time breaks the record held by Rachel Moore (ANA at time of record) (CRIM) in 2009.
Aaron Gustafson of ABF set the NE and NE-RES record in the 100 Backstroke with a time of 48.04. This breaks the record set by his teammate, Luca Spinazzola set at the NE Senior meet last year.
Brian Poon of PHX added three more records to his collection! He set the NE and NE-RES record in the Boy's 13-14 400 IM, previously owned by Ryan Harty of GMSC and the RES record by Brian, himself, set one week earlier at the Bowdoin Invite. His time was 4:00.04. Brian then went on to break two more NE 13-14 Boy's records in one night! He swam a 1:54.27 in the 200 Butterfly, breaking Kevin Bradley's (CRIM) record, of 1:54.49 and then broke the 2006 200 Breastroke record of Taylor Grey, GMA by swimming a 2:10.04!
