WOMEN’S 200 IM FINAL
Katie Meili is on a roll this weekend. Her 1:54.15 for the 200 IM is her second record for the meet this weekend, improving upon the 1:54.43 she turned in last year at the Oklahoma Community College Pool. That time is also a personal best for Meili, topping the 1:54.20 she turned in at Greensboro last December. Karlee Bispo took the second place prize money with 1:57.84, with Springfield Aquatics’ Bailee Nunn taking the third podium spot at 2:00.54. Fourth and fifth place were taken by two from Mission Viejo, with Jessica Epps touching at 2:02.15 and Samantha Shelton at 2:03.03. Houston Swim Club’s Hannah Sumbera was sixth with 2:05.82 and Tri Aquatics’ Mallory Underwood followed with 2:06.62.
WOMEN’S 200 BREAST FINAL
Katie Meili again dominated the 200 breaststroke field, taking the top prize money with 2:08.88. Behind her, Fort Worth Area’s Rayann Jaryszak (2:18.58,) and Mission Viejo’s Jessica Epps (2:19.04) claimed the second and third place podium positions. Houston Swim Club’s Kylie Powers was fourth with 2:19.12, followed by Tri Aquatics Mallory Underwood at 2:20.96. Houston had another A-finalist in the mix with Hannah Sumbera taking sixth place at 2:21.33, followed by Ashley Pales from Lincoln Select at 2:25.91.
MEN’S 200 BREAST FINAL
Brendan McHugh got out like he meant business, splitting 53.43 for the first half of the 200 breast on the way to his second meet record of the weekend. McHugh turned in 1:52.46 to take down the 1:53.04 mark set by BJ Johnson in 2013. Taking the second place prize money was Eastern Michigan alum Ryan Fisher from Austin Swim Club at 1:58.16, followed by Lakeside’s Tristen Disibio at 2:01.81 for third. Christopher Heye was fourth in 2:03.11. Houston’s Davis Bryan was fifth at 2:04.36. North Texas Nadadores’ Evan Kolde took sixth, followed by Lakeside’s Brendan Feehery at 2:05.72. The Screaming Viking was back again as well, unable to match the preliminary performance that got him into the unlikely a-final because it was past his bedtime. He finished in 2:07.67.
