Harrison Bennett made record-breaking waves at the New England and North West Long Course Area Championships.
The Wee Waa swimmer was one of the stars of the meet, powering his way to seven records.
Bennett eclipsed the existing area records in the 13 years boys 50m butterfly (30.92secs), 50m freestyle (28.35secs), 200m individual medley (2mins 37.59secs), 100m freestyle (1min 01.28secs), 50m backstroke (32.48secs), 100m butterfly (1min 09.51secs) and 100m backstroke (1min 13.09secs).
The championships attracted 181 swimmers and 1067 entries with a broad representation across the area, which stretches from Muswellbrook, out to Wee Waa and Moree and up to Glen Innes.
Area president Jeremy Deasey said there were some really good performances over the two days and noted that the quality has really lifted over the last couple of years.
"We tightened the qualifying times to get the best of the best of the area, and the quality is shining through," Deasey said.
That was reflected in the number of records that were broken, Tamworth City's Amelia Simm and Alex Hayes, 360 Scully Park's James Ryan and Meghan Andren, Muswellbrook's Porscha Jimmieson and Armidale Alligators' Lara Maloney also producing multiple record-breaking swims.
Simm set new benchmarks in her 13 years girls 50m freestyle (30.20secs), 100m girls freestyle (1min 03.07secs) and 50m backstroke (34.56secs), and featured in two relay records - the open girls 200m medley relay and open girls 200m freestyle relay.
Hayes was also part of the medley relay team, and also broke the records for the girls 14 years 50m breaststroke (35.99secs) and 100m breaststroke (1min 17.45secs).
Andren excelled in the freestyle events setting new records for the 15 years girls 50m (29.07sesc) and 100m (1min 03.21secs), while club-mate Ryan raised the bar in the boys 12 years 50m (38.91secs) and 100m breaststroke (1min 24.43secs).
Jimmieson impressed across multiple strokes, setting new records in the multi-class open girls 50m freestyle, multi-class open 50m backstroke, open 50m breaststroke and open 50m fly.
Maloney showed her versatility, breaking records in the girls 16&O 50m freestyle (28.93secs) and open 200m backstroke (2mins 2.82secs).

It was a big couple of days with the area championships following on from the Speedo Sprint Heats.
Deasey said they were quite fortunate with the weather, the last event finishing just before an afternoon storm hit.
