I have a record in Backstroke?! [UPDATE: and some other stuff?]

A friend of mine just sent me the email below. He copy pasted the header of the results for the boys 15-18 100 yard backstroke at this weekend’s Northwest Age Group Regional Championships. To clarify my surprise, backstroke was definitely not my strength.

I wonder if I have any other records that I don’t know about.

UPDATE:

I DO I DO!! I got another email today with a record that makes more sense:

14 NWAGR: 4:41.28 3/1/1998 BEN COLLINS, SSEA-PN

From 1998? That’s half my life ago!
