DYNAMO FALL SPECIAL

  • Results on Meet Mobile: ‘Dynamo Fall Special 2020’

Alicia Henry, a Cal ’25 commit, won both breaststroke events this weekend at the Dynamo Fall Special intrasquad meet.

In the 200 breast on Friday, Henry posted a 2:13.85, her first-ever instance under 2:15. She followed that up with another easy win in the 100, going 1:00.91 to come just .71 from her lifetime best. She also added a win in the 50 free (24.30).

Connor LaMastra, who swam for three years at Dartmouth and is transferring to Northwestern because Dartmouth cut its program, had a huge weekend. He won four events: the 200 free (1:38.47), 500 free (4:28.37), 200 fly (1:44.64) and 400 IM (3:55.05). He was only a second and change off of his 200 fly best, and he was less than four seconds off of his best in the 400 IM, which he swum the event after the 200 fly.

Louisville ’26 commit Rye Ulett also claimed four victories. She won the 200 free (1:52.20), 500 free (5:01.84), 200 back (1:57.95) and 400 IM (4:26.74).

OTHER NOTABLE SWIMS

  • UGA commit Arie Voloschin took both breaststroke events; going 55.18 in the 100 and 2:02.81 in the 200, slicing over four seconds off of his old best in the 200.
  • In the men’s 200 back, 18-year-old and Penn commit Daniel Gallagher clocked a 1:47.14 for the win over 16-year-old Owen McDonald (1:47.52). Both swimmers hit their first sub-1:48 performances.
  • Nicholas Goudie, DII powerhouse Emory sophomore, won the 100 fly (49.57) and 50 free (20.33), going lifetime bests in both.
  • Avery Bargeron, 17, just missed her PR in the 200 fly with a 2:00.39 win. She’s an Auburn ’25 commit.

Nicholas Goudie actually went his 49 100 fly and 20.3 50 free after practicing 4 times these past two weeks due to having his wisdom teeth removed. Excepting great things from young Nicholas this coming season once his practice record is a little more consistent!

Not to mention club swimmer at Brown, Theo Hardy, going a 21.1 for a personal best in the 50. That time places him ahead of multiple varsity swimmers from last season!
