BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – The Berkeley Aquatics Club Swim Team added to an exciting season with a record setting 2017 Long Course Senior Zone Championship Meet (Eastern Zone) in Buffalo. Eight different BAC swimmers broke five New Jersey state records during the four-day event.

Anastasia Bogdanovski led all swimmers with three broken records, two that were as part of a relay and one individual, in the Women’s Open 100 meter Free. The relay team, which consisted of Boganovski, Sophia Kudryashova, Erica Wirth, and Claire O’Mara, broke the records in the Open 400 and 800 meter freestyle relays.

“Each and every day we speak about opportunities; opportunities to get better, opportunities to challenge yourself and each other,” said BAC head junior team coach Tristan Formon. “As we entered the last few meets of the year, we met and discussed the final opportunities that laid ahead.  Foundations were laid and all were prepared for success.”

BAC also had 26 other top three finishes in Buffalo en route to first place as the Combined Team Score Champion.
