University if Michigan’s Kathryn Krolikowski won the women’s 200 fly by nearly 2 seconds, touching the wall in 2:15.26. That marked a personal best for Krolikowski, who had previously been 2:15.45 at her fastest, which she did last Summer at US Nationals. Tate Cutler, a 17-year-old from DART Swimming, won the men’s 200 fly with a personal best of 2:02.62. That swim marked a best time by nearly a second, as he came into the meet with a 2:03.53, which he had swum in June of this year.
Washington State’s Chloe Larson clocked a 26.09 to win the women’s 50 free. That swim marks a drop of .36 seconds for the rising sophomore, who had swum her previous best of 26.45 just 2 weeks ago. Arizona State alum Patrick Park won the men’s 50 free convincingly, finishing in 23.02. His swim undercut his previous best of 23.05, which he had swum back in 2017, and came in under the 2020 Olympic Trials cut of 23.19. Park’s previous best was already under the cut, however, Park swam it before the qualifying period for 2020 began.
University of Nevada’s Donna Depolo won the women’s 200 breast by over a second. After picking up an Olympic Trials cut in the 100 breast on Day 2, Depolo finished in 2:33.53, marking a drop of 3.39 seconds from her previous best time. Seattle University’s John Neton won the men’s 200 breast by 2.5 seconds, clocking a 2:19.61. Neton came into the meet with a personal best of 2:21.16, marking his first time under 2:20 in his career.
Emma Lepisova of Burlingame Aquatic Club won the women’s 100 back in 1:04.09. The 18-year-old came into the meet with a personal best of 1:04.68, then swam a 1:04.49 in prelims, and lowered her best time again in finals. Joshua Hanson, a 25-year-old from Riverside Aquatics Association, won the men’s 100 back in 58.29. Hanson bettered his prelims time of 59.23, but was well off his personal best of 57.27, which he established back in 2015.
Princeton’s Courtney Tseng won the women’s 400 free in 4:21.17. The time comes in off Tseng’s best time of 4:18.93, which she swam back in 2017. Men’s 1500 champion, 15-year-old Parker Reynolds won the men’s 400 free with a new personal best of 3:58.15. The swim marks Reynolds’ 2nd time being under 4:00, with his first time coming in prelims, where he swam a 3:58.98. Reynolds’ personal best coming into the meet was 4:00.34. Having won both the men’s 1500 and 400, Reynolds’ is likely the favorite to take the men’s 800 on Day 4.
