A New Stars record was set at the Elk Grove Park District Swim Meet on Saturday, October 12, 2019.
The event was the 11-12 Girls 50 Breaststroke. Record broken by Riley Grill, 12, from Westchester, with a new record time of 39.96 seconds.
The record was previously held by Nicole Joneikis, set in Oak Brook in 2018.
From the Coach:
Riley Grill has had her eye on this record for a while now! Riley is one of the most dedicated swimmers on the team. She rarely misses practice and has always been a great role model for younger swimmers. She is a great listener and takes advice and feedback well. She recently moved into our Senior age group and has started her season off GREAT! Coach Devin gave her a goal for under 40 in the 50 breaststroke for the season and she crushed it at the first meet. We have now been working on setting larger goals.
