The Triangle Aquatic Center was rocking on Saturday as five North Carolina state records went down. Even more, we saw a National Age Group record go down as well.

The 10&U ladies of TAC Titans toppled the NAG record in the 200m medley relay with a blistering time of 2:18.71 -- taking down Ohio State Swim Club's 2014 mark of 2:19.25. The quartet of ​Lilly Ann Willis ​(10), ​Nicole Zettel ​(10), ​Taylor Cureton​ (10), and ​Meredith Whelehan​ (10) blew away the field by over 13 seconds. Check out their splits below:​
