Tonight, YMCA record-holders Matt Fallon (Somerset Valley YMCA) and Brendan Burns (Upper Main Line YMCA) will clash head-to-head in the 200 IM final. Fallon has walked away with easy wins in the 200 breast and 400 IM, swimming #2 times in the 15-16 age group for both events. Burns won the 100 fly and 200 free thus far, setting YMCA meet records in both.
Fallon is the second seed in the event with a 1:50.37, Burns is the fourth seed with a 1:50.46. The meet record in this event currently stands 1:45.76, but with the meet Burns and Fallon have been having, another record could be in jeopardy.
Leading the seeds tonight is Sam Wesley of Ridley Area YMCA with a 1:49.84, who can easily sneak into the battle. Last year, Wesley placed 20th in this event nearly 4 seconds slower than his morning prelims time.
Aiming to defend his 2018 500 free title tonight is Ross Dant of Hickory YMCA. Dant swam a 4:24.58 this morning, but is seeded at a 4:18.70. Dant’s seed time is also less than a second off of the YMCA record of 4:18.01, which was broken in 2011 by Nicholas Caldwell.
Emma Weyant of Sarasota YMCA is the top seed in the 500 free with a 4:47.66 and looks to earn her 3rd distance title after winning the 1000 free and 400 IM. Tonight, Weyant has another shot a title, this time in the 200 IM. Weyant is seeded second with a 2:00.90, however she has the fastest meet seed with a 1:58.07. 200 breast champion Charity Pittard (Boise YMCA) is the top seed with a 2:00.48.
