The Socal swimmers have broken over 20 team records in the last six months. Unfortunately, I missed one during this fleury of records. At the spring JO's Andrew Leong broke the 13-14 year old boys 100 back record with a 55.57. This record was one of the oldest on the book (1979) and it was a great swim.
What makes this announcement special is one of Andrew's teammates, Joey Kling, was the one that pointed this out to me. Joey is also a very good backstroker who swam the same event at JO's going only a few tenths slower.
I am impressed with both young men.
Great job Andrew and thank you Joey.
