Fritz, 10, who swims for the New Holland Dolphins, set a 10U team record of 17.61 in the 25 butterfly – erasing the old mark of 17.84 – after an hour delay due the swarming Mayfly invasion that covered the pool surface.

“I didn’t mind, I just swam like they weren’t there,” said Madeline, who didn’t get off the starting box until 1030 p.m.

Madeline, the daughter of John Fritz and Lesley Groff, will start 6th grade at Ephrata Middle School this year.
