Day 2 prelims at the 2016 Junior Pan Pacific Championships saw Australia’s 200 free duo from last night set up a rematch for tonight’s finals, this time in the 100 free. Jack Cartwright, the 200 free champ, raced to the top seed for finals with the only sub-49 swim of the morning. Cartwright posted a 48.91 to drop over half a second from his seed time.
His teammate, Louis Townsend, who was 2nd in the 200 free last night, also broke the 50-second barrer this morning with a 49.48 to grab 3rd in between Americans Cameron Craig (49.45) and Daniel Krueger (49.61).
Aside from the men’s 100 free, Team USA took the #1 seeds for finals in all 5 of the other events contested this morning. On the women’s side of the 100 free, Isabel Ivey led the field through prelims, posting a top time of 55.03.
In the 100 breast, Zoe Bartel and Jacob Montague were the fastest swimmers of the morning. Bartel topped the women’s heats with a 1:07.82, just ahead of teammate Allie Raab (1:07.92). Montague, on the other hand, led the men this morning with a 1:00.81, setting up a good race with Australia’s Matthew Wilson (1:01.03) and his USA teammate Reece Whitley (1:01.68) tonight.
Brooke Forde and Canada’s Mary-Sophie Harvey were narrowly separated in the women’s 400 IM prelims, with both clocking in at the 4:43-range. Forde was a touch faster, taking the top spot in 4:43.03 to Harvey’s 4:43.57.
Sean Grieshop, the reigning Junior World Champion, was the only swimmer under 4:20 in the men’s 400 IM prelims, cruising to a 4:18.07. Coming in 2nd overall behind Grieshop was his teammate Charlie Swanson, who clocked in at 4:21.97.
