Paige Hetrick and Justin Fleagle each won events for the second time in two nights at YMCA Nationals.

Hetrick is on her way to a sweep of the girls backstrokes. The 200 back champ from Wednesday night went 1:02.42 to win the 100 back on Thursday. That was still seven tenths off her lifetime-best, and just three tenths away from a YMCA national record.

Meanwhile Fleagle added the boys 100 back title to his 100 fly win from night 2. Fleagle went 57.04, beating Justin Heimes by four tenths.

There were a couple more close shaves with national records. The girls of Blue Ash went 1:57.81 to win the 200 medley relay, coming within seven tenths off the national record. Emma Shuppert had the field’s best back split at 29.31 and Megan Glass powered away with a field-best 27.53 fly leg.

Other event winners:

  • Victoria Eisenhauer dropped another half-second, going 32.52 to win the girls 50 breast.
  • For the boys, Richie Trentalange held up his top qualifying spot, winning in 29.22.
  • McKenzie Campbell won the girls 400 IM in 4:54.31.
  • In the boys race, James Doromal cut about three seconds from prelims, going 4:31.56 to edge out Lukas Scheidl by three tenths.
  • Kate Morris took home the girls 200 free in 2:02.18.
