N'Nhyn Fernander and Gershwin Greene are two swimmers from the Barracuda Swim Club whose names were recently added to the record books.

In the first swim meet of the season, hosted by the Sea Waves Aquatics Team, Fernander swam the 50 meters (m) butterfly (13-14 Boys) in 26.83 seconds, breaking the old record of 26.97 seconds, which was set in April 2009 by Evante Gibson. Greene swam the 50m 13-14 Boys freestyle in 24.64 seconds, breaking his own record of 24.80 seconds which was set in May of this year.

Travano McPhee, senior Swim Coach of the Barracuda Swim Club, said: "It is very difficult to break a record, especially at the beginning of the season. I am very proud of these swimmers. They both train very hard and it is good to see their efforts pay off."

Dion Gibson, president of the Barracuda Swim Club, added: "This is an excellent start for what will be a fantastic year for our Barracuda swimmers. Our kids are ready to perform, and we look forward to seeing more records broken by our swimmers. We invite all swim fans to come out to the Betty Kelly-Kenning Aquatics Center on Friday, November 1st and Saturday November 2nd, for the annual Barracuda/Family Guardian Swim Invitational."
