Del Prado 15-18 Boys crush free relay record.


The relay team lead by Jake Newman, Sean Sullivan, Tommy Juarez, and Taylor Smith capped on the final home swim meet at Del Prado Cabana Club today in fine fashion smashing at 2006 free relay record by two seconds.

The boys had been attempting to beat this record all season and with it all on the line pulled it out at their final home meet. Taylor was due to go work, so the event was moved up in the program. Some little fishes mentioned to Sammy that the boys went all out with shaved legs and Tech-suits lent out by a coach’s BF.

Previous record 0f 1:34.42 was held by J.Plummer, A.Beatty, J.Compton, and M.Pestana
set August 5, 2006. (Before this website existed.)
