Two records for the Clovis Swim Club highlighted a busy third day of the Central California Junior Olympics Swimming Championships at Bakersfield College on Sunday.
The marks were set in both relays in the girls 13-14 year-old age group.
In the 200 freestyle relay, Stephanie Bartel, Savannah Fitzgerald, Skylar Elkington and Caitlyn Snyder finished in 1:38.75 to break the old record of 1:40.2, which had stood for more than 30 years.
In the 400 medley relay, Bartel, Olivia Johnson, Elkington and Snyder shattered the old mark of 4:08.76, finishing in 4:00.46.
"It was pretty cool," said Snyder, who also got first in the 200 breaststroke (2:26.52). "It's kind of easy to break it with a family because we're all very close and we're all best friends. I knew when my teammate was going to touch that I had to 25 seconds or lower in the (200 freestyle relay), and I went 24 so that was pretty good.
"I was pretty tired so I looked at the board and I was like 'Oh OK we won' and everyone was so happy, but I was so tired that I couldn't scream. It was exciting though."
Bartel added, "We're really hoping to continue to break records. Tomorrow we have one more so hopefully we can break that one, too."
Both the Bakersfield Aquatics Club and Roadrunner Aquatics continued to find success on Sunday.
