After nearly missing the 11-12 girls team record in the 400 meter freestyle, swimming in her last meet as an 11-12 year old girl, Allyson Duffy breaks the team record with a 4:46.45 which is under the preexisting record of 4:53.22 held by Samantha Goates and set at Junior Olympics in 2002. Allysons time currently stands as the 33rd fastest time in the nation for all 12-year old girls.
Ten year old Preston Niayesh had set the 10-under boys team record in the 200 IM during the Merced meet earlier this year with a 3:04.78. During the Bakersfield meet he went well under that preexisting time with his 3:02.04, which is a time that currently ranks 211th nationally for 10-year old boys. Preston was the event champion in both the 200 free (2:41.20) and 100 back (1:31.03) events.
Eight swimmers including Preston were event champions at the Bakersfield meet, and were led by Janessa Bringe who won 4 of her 7 events in the 10-under girls division: 200 free (2:55.63), 100 free (1:23.47), 50 back (45.96) and 200 IM (3:29.35). Alonso Escobedo, Preston Niayesh and Breann Santos each became dual champions in their respective division with Alonso winning both the 11-12 boys 50 free (33.00) and 100 breast (1:31.93) events, Preston winning both the 200 free (2:41.20) and 100 back (1:31.03) events, and Breann Santos winning both the 10-under girls 100 fly (1:54.63) and 50 fly (45.96) events.
