Belfast — Records continue to fall at a consistent pace for the Penobscot Bay YMCA Sailfish youth swimmers and this time they dropped in a meet fairly close to home and, more remarkably, bettered two quarter-century-old standards.

Ten-year-olds Sophie Cyr and Rowan Stewart broke team records that were 25 years old. Stewart also set a new time on a record she previously held.

The Sailfish swam at the annual invitational at the Waldo County YMCA last weekend. Teams from Kennebec, Boothbay, Waldo County and Pen Bay participated.

At the meet, new Sailfish girls 9-10 age-group records were set.

Stewart continued to dominate in the pool with two more broken records and a total of six for the season. She broke the 200 individual medley with a time of 2:46.55. The previous record was 2:48.74 by Krista Hathorn set on March 13, 1994.

Stewart also broke her own age-group record in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:25.16. Her previous time was 1:26.04 set on Dec. 9, 2018.

Cyr broke the 400 IM age-group record with a time of 6:07.45. The previous record also also was held by Hathorn with a time of 6:07.48 from March 22, 1994. It was Cyr's second team record in the age group this year.
