Piero Orderique makes Columbus Aquatic Club history. At the Gold "Cummings Meet" Piero has recorded the fastest 200m Butterfly time in the USA for 11 year olds to date. His time of 2:31.53 is more than 4 seconds faster than any other 11 year old in US Swimming this year. Some interesting notes: This is the first time Piero has swum the 200m Butterfly, and he has 5 more months before he turns 12. And finally his time already ranks him as 16th fastest of all 12 year olds in the country as well.
Of course his time is another team record which makes the "New Storm Count" at 78.
Also getting into the record breaking act was Josie Hadaway (just turning 15 last month) has surpast the teams record in the 15-16 & The Open 200m Breaststroke with a time of 3:00.55. Breaking Jessica Graber's 6 year old record of 3:00.75.
Just missing a new team record was Ashlyn Steinbach in the 13 - 14 200m Breaststroke with a time of 3:03.58, missing the team record by .44 seconds. Thats gunna fall her next time out.
More results coming soon.
