Three League Records Tumble in Week OneSun, 6-26-2016 | Paul Parry
Two Yards Records of Olde Go Down
Week 1 of 2016 was highlighted by an ever-improving standout and the falling of two old-school yard records.
At Chesterbrook, Courtney Watts of Highlands Swim lowered her own 9-10 Girls 50m backstroke record of 34.16 set at last years All Stars by swimming a 33.64. She's got several more meets to lower that amazing time even further.
Then, at Homes Run Acres, one of only two remaining 25-yard pools, Kendall Vess of Country Club Hills broke the record set by Gayle Smith (T) in 1978 and equaled by Erica Bledsoe (O) in 1982 of 14.30 by swimming a 14.29 in the 9-10 Girls 25Y Butterfly. Just for reference, in 1982, a postage stamp was 20 cents, a gallon of milk cost $1.85, and the first CD player was sold.
Finally, at Kent Gardens, the other NVSL yard pool, the Oakton 15-18 boys (Drew Weber, Andrew Sargent, Michael Ambrose, and Brendan Power) took down the 200Y Medley Relay set by Somerset-Olde Creek on 7/2/1983 of 1:42.10 by swimming a time of 1:41.31. Witnessing that swim was Mark Klopfenstein, the breaststroke member of that SOC team and now the Oakton Dive Team Rep, and his mother, Linda Klopfenstein, who was SOC Team Rep at the time and is currently the Division 1 Coordinator.
