Sophie Reis does it again setting three more 8&Under Team Records in her last meet as a 8 year old at the WEST IMX Trophy Meet. Breaking her own records in the 50 Freestyle (32.96) and the 100 Freestyle (1:11.20), Sophie then went on to also break a ten year old team record in the 50 Backstroke (39.33). Congratulations Sophie, keep up the great work. You can see all of our current short course record holders here, or click on the "Records" tab on the top of the team website.
