Adding to the impressiveness of Moesch’s 50, she had thrown down a massive personal best in the 200 IM earlier in the session. Moesch came in 3rd, swimming a 1:59.34, marking a new personal best by over 3 seconds. It was fellow Greater Somerset 16-year-old Emily Thompson who won the race, swimming a new PB of 1:57.67. Thompson swam a very well-rounded race, splitting 25.49 on fly, 29.02 on back, 34.28 on breast, and 28.88 coming home on free. Champaign County Y’s Angela Coe took 2nd in 1:58.97, chipping 0.21 seconds off her previous best time.

It was a Greater Somerset sweep of the women’s events tonight, as Catherine Meisner, 18, won the women’s 500 free in 4:49.68. The swim comes in about a second off her personal best of 4:48.51.

Piedmont Family Y’s Thomas Heilman, 15, won the men’s 50 free in 19.86. The swim comes in just off the 19.78 Heilman swam leading off the 200 free relay earlier in the meet, but he was still the only swimmer under 20 seconds tonight.

Countryside Y’s Kevin Glennon won the men’s 200 IM in 1:47.42, taking 2.53 seconds off his previous best. Glennon was great on the back half of the race, splitting 31.80 on breast and 25.84 on free.
