NOVA of Virginia’s Zoe Dixon, 17, also broke a meet record, winning the women’s 200 breast in 2:29.82. The swim was another lifetime best for Dixon, who was coming off an excellent 400 IM last night, in which she broke that meet record also. In the 200 breast tonight, Dixon established the lead on the 2nd 50, and never let it go. Dixon took 2.46 seconds off her previous best of 2:32.28, which she swam just 4 weeks ago. With the time, Dixon is now tied for #55 all-time in the 17-18 age group. The previous meet record was held by Olivia Anderson at 2:31.48.
