Early Saturday afternoon at the Western Tidewater Swim-ming Association (WTSA) All-Star meet at the Churchland Swim Club, Rachel Waller knocked her older sister Danielle out of the league record books, blasting through the 9-10 25-meter butterfly race in 17.52 seconds, .13 faster than Danielle did it in 1999.
It was OK; in the last race of the meet, the older Waller got right back in the books, teaming with Kyle Jett, Ryan Hanson and Jarred Baird to take home the 15-18 200 mixed medley relay in 2:05.05, chopping 1.17 seconds off a record set by the Churchland squad earlier this season.
The Waller women, who helped Nansemond to a 7-0 this season, the team's first regular-season title since 1993 and the first by a Suffolk team since 1997, helped the Sharks to third place in the meet. East-West (EW) finished fifth, Suffolk sixth and the Tsunami (TS) club eighth.
