Claire Tuggle Scratches 200 Fly To Focus On 800 Free On Day 1 of Junior Nats


15-year-old Claire Tuggle has scratched out of the C final of the 200 fly in order to focus on her 800 free swim on night 1 of U.S. Junior Nationals.

Tuggle had qualified 20th this morning in the 200 fly, but would have faced a tough 200 fly / 800 free double tonight. Tuggle is the #2 seed in tonight’s 800 free. She’ll swim in the final heat with the finals session, while the earlier timed finals heats will take place in the afternoon.

There is only one other scratch out of the A, B or C finals: Connor Hunt from the boys 200 fly. No one scratched out of the 100 breaststrokes for tonight.
