To finish off the morning there were two relay records taken by the Sharks teams. First in the 4x50 Medley 13-14 the girls team of Shannon Hassell, Paige Bruton, Jessie Thomas and Maddy Moore went 2:13.66 shaving almost 3 seconds off their own record from April. The Boyís 15-16 team of Philip Hagen, Ferdinand Arnold, Shannon Botelho and Jesse Washington also dropped nearly 3 seconds from their record set in April.
The Grand Finale Tonight was special across the board with all levels of swimmers putting on a show at the BASA pool. 3 records fell in the 100m Backstroke, first up was Moore in the 11 and 12 Finals where she finished first while taking the record from teammate Shannon Hassell. Hassellís old record was 1:09.57 and Moore finished with a 1:09.32. In the very next event Hassell won the Girls 13-14 Backstroke and recaptured her record with a swim of 1:08.79. This was one of the shortest periods for a record to be held in Bermuda. Jesse Washington followed the girls in his 100m Backstroke by winning in a record time of 1:03.16 which took the record from former Shark Nick Thomson who swam 1:04.27 in 2006.
200 IM was the next in the pool and the races were all very fast and competitive. Philip Hagen continues to regain his pre Carifta form as he shattered his time from the morning in winning the event. There was little time to catch your breath before the 100m Butterfly block began as the next record fell with Emma Harvey lowering her record from the morning going 1:11.61 after her 1:12.69 in the morning heats. Washington was still warmed up from his Backstroke as he entered the 100m Butterfly and swam an impressive 1:01.00 which took the record from fellow Shark Nic Patterson who had held the 1:03.49 record since 2009.
Washington lit the pool up in his 200m Freestyle by taking the first 100m out in 57 seconds and then finishing the rest with an impressive 1:59.42. The record that he broke was from Gerri Mewett and it was set in 1989 at 1:59.78.
Moore capped off her amazing weekend with a 26.93 that took the record that she set in the morning. What is most impressive is that her time is faster than the 17-18 record and she has been 13 for 2 days. Jesse Washington used whatever was left in the tank to equal his 50m Freestyle record of 24.87.
Under overcast skies the Bermuda Amateur Swimming Associationís Schroderís Summer Age Group Championships continued.
Three individual records were taken in the heats beginning with Finn Mosley as he lowered his own record in the Boys 8 & Under 200m Backstroke from 4:14.30 to 3:34.62.

Moore had some issues with her goggles in the morning heats of the 100m Freestyle but in the finals she was all about business.
