Arlington Aquatic Club 18-yeat-old Torri Huske put on a show on Friday night at the Richmond site of the TYR Spring Cup. Huske kicked the finals session off with a massive win in the women’s 200 free. She posted a 1:58.09, dropping 2.5 seconds, and picking up an Olympic Trials Wave II cut in the event. The swim makes Huske 9th all-time for 17-18 girls, and suddenly puts her in contention to make the final at Trials. Huske impressed earlier in April, when she clocked a 24.44 50 free, and 53.46 100 free, and now it appears she’s added the 200 free to the list of events she could be contending for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team in.
Huske then went on to post a 57.61 to win the women’s 100 fly. Huske swam 56.69 earlier in April in the event. She still got out to a quick start, splitting 26.65 on the first 50, then coming home in 30.96.
Lauren Walsh, a 16-year-old out of Rapids Swim Team, took the women’s 100 breast. Walsh swam a 1:10.35, dropping from her 1:10.94 in prelims. Walsh’s prelims swim marked her first Olympic Trials Wave I cut.
NOVA 17-year-old Zoe Dixon clocked a 4:46.12 to win the women’s 400 IM. The swim was off her personal best of 4:43.01, which she swam in January of this year. Her personal best is under the Wave II cut.
Unattached 15-year-old Daniel Diehl won the men’s 200 free in 1:52.58. The swim marked a 0.28 second drop for Diehl. He split 25.89/28.21/29.52/28.96 by 50 respectively. Joshua Matheny, an 18-year-old from PEAQ, swam a 1:02.39 in the men’s 100 breast, getting his hands on the wall first. Matheny has been as fast as 1:00.17, which he swam in 2019. He’s been 1:00.31 in 2021.
