The 2017 Futures Championshps in Lewisville, Texas continued today with the 200 free, 100 breast, 100 fly, and 400 IM. Chicago Wolfpack’s Jacob Furlong made a big drop in the 200 free to open the finals session for the men. Coming into this season, he had a best of 1:55.38 from 2016 Futures, but he had already lowered that to a 1:54.36 ahead of this weekend’s meet. Furlong demolished his time today, edging out teammate Reilly Shields to win it in 1:52.45. Shields finished off the 1-2 punch for CWAC with a 1:52.83 for silver.
The closest race of the night came in the men’s 100 breast, where BNSC’s Harrison Fudge, IFLY’s Forrest Frazier, and GOAL’s Connor Funke were neck-and-neck into the finish. North Texas Nadadores’ Evan Kolde (1:05.70) had the front end speed to take the lead by just a nail over Fudge, but wasn’t able to hold on as Fudge went by him on the back half. Frazier (1:05.48) and Funke (1:05.50) tried to make a move on Fudge over the 2nd 50 meters, but ran out of room as Fudge touched in 1:05.42 for the win.
On the women’s side, 14-year-old Berit Quass of Dowling Catholic Riptide put on a show in the 100 fly. Her lead was never in question, as she took it out in 28.86 to gain nearly a second on the field at the halfway mark. Quass only extended that lead into the finish, winning by over a second with her 1:01.96. That marked her first career swim under the 1:02-barrier and shaved a few tenths off the 1:02.24 she did in June. Her time drops throughout the season have been impressive, as her lifetime best was a 1:03.75 prior to 2017.
