Charlotte Hook Absent from US Trials Psychs After 3rd Place Finish in 2022


Stanford rising sophomore and former Junior National Team member Charlotte Hook is absent from the pre-scratch psych sheets for the 2023 US National Championships next week.

Hook, who just finished her first year of collegiate swimming, has a lifetime best of 2:07.87 in the 200 meter fly. That time, swum in 2019, would have made her the 5th seed in the event. More recently, she swam 2:10.64 at the US Open in December, 2:09.24 at Futures last summer, and 2:08.80 at last year’s US Team Trials, which was good for a 3rd place finish. She was .87 seconds away from making the team last year, and with so many teams being chosen this year, she was a strong contender to make a US team this summer, if not the World Championship Team.

That’s especially true after a freshman year where she swam a new personal best of 1:52.48 in the 200 fly mid-season, which dropped about three-tenths of a second off her previous best time. She went on to place 6th in that event at NCAAs.

Hook is a native of Raleigh, North Carolina, where she swam for the TAC Titans alongside her Stanford classmate Claire Curzan.
