The girls won two events: Charlotte Kumler won the 200 free and Zoe Napier won the 100 back.
Additionally, we had multiple 2nd and 3rd place finishes: the girls’ 200 medley relay placed second (Charlotte Kumler, Caitlin Clark, Stasia Reinholt, Ella Eskenazi) and the girls’ 200 FR also placed (Zoe Napier, Kylar Kavanaugh, Caitlin Clark, Macy Paton). Individually, Caitlin Clark placed 2nd in the 200 IM, Stasia Reinholt was 3rd in the 200 IM and the 500 free, Macy Paton was 2nd in the 50 free and 100 free, Charlotte Kumler was 2nd in the 100 fly, Ella Eskenazi placed 2nd in the 500 free and 3rd in the 100 back, and Kylar was 2nd in the100 breast.
We also had two awesome fights to the finish: Zoe in her 100 back and Kylar as the anchor in the 400 free relay. Both of these races were changed in the last leg of the race.
We also had a bunch of ‘green,’ or first time, swims: Kylar Kavanaugh swam the 200 free and 100 breast; Zoe Napier and Annie Klemsz swam the 50 free; Meredith Malott and Annie Klemsz swam the 100 free; and Stasia Reinholt rocked her first 500 free.
The following swims were best times:
Meredith Malott shaved off some time in her 50 breast split (52.13) and about 12 seconds from her 100 breast (1:53.61).
Ella Eskenazi went a best 50 free relay split in the 200 MR (30.78).
Charlotte Kumler went a best time in the 100 fly (1:16.75). Caitlin Clark also dropped over 10 seconds in her annual swim of the event (1:31.83).
Zoe Napier dropped about 5 seconds in the 100 back (1:28.24). Zoe also led off the 200 free relay and went about 2 seconds faster than she did in the individual event earlier in the meet (33.59).
The 400 free relays led to best splits for Kylar Kavanaugh (1:12.14) and Stasia Reinholt (1:09.75).
