Nine meet records were broken over the weekend at the Patti Wilder Meet, put on by the Cobb Summer Swim League at Mountain View Aquatic Center.

The event pits swimmers from various neighborhood swim programs from across the county.

Gabrielle Auerbach of Legacy Park accounted for two of the records, in the girls 11-12 50-yard freestyle and 50 backstroke. She won the 50 freestyle in 25.65 seconds, breaking former Lassiter High School swimmer Kim Carducci’s record of 25.72 set in 2007.

Auerbach’s record time in the 50 backstroke was 28.85, breaking Katie Head’s record time 28.92 set in 2004.

Chimney Springs’ Parker Johnson set a new mark in the boys 13-14 100 freestyle with a time of 49.70, eclipsing his preliminary time by nearly 7 seconds. Kennesaw Mountain swimmer Thomas Locke held the previous record of 49.76, set in 2012.

The Pinecrest girls 13-14 200 freestyle relay team of Hannah Belinski, Caroline Current, Melissa Cox and Jami Williams won in 1:45.76, shattering a 16-year-old record set by Sibley Forest. The previous record of 1:47.72 was set in 1998.

The Johnson Creek boys 13-14 freestyle relay — Riley Crocker, Ryan Ferguson, Turner Gibson and John Kirby — won in a record time of 1:43.76, just beating out the previous record set by Saddlebrook in 2007.

Emma Norton of Burnt Hickory Lakes won the girls 9-10 25 butterfly in a record time of 13.35, besting Addie Rose Bullock’s previous record. Meanwhile, Bullock, who swims for the Marietta Country Club, set a new mark in the 11-12 50 butterfly with a time of 27.15, breaking Head’s 10-year-old record.
