Congratulations Eastern Zone Swimmers
Great work to our AGUA athletes who raced at the 2021 Eastern Zone Age Group Championships in Richmond, VA and the 2021 Eastern Zone Senior Championships in Buffalo, NY.

Denys Mialkovskyi led the way by setting a new meet record in the 13-14 boys 200 backstroke with a time of 2:08.74. His swim is also a new AGUA team record and earned him the Eastern Zone gold medal. Denys was also victorious in the 100 backstroke and picked up an additional silver medal in the 200 individual medley.

Azana Karim earned a pair of medals, winning gold in the 13-14 girls 50 freestyle, and bronze in the 100 distance.
