Gator Swim Club is piling up the wins at the Orlando Sectional, with Sebastien Rousseau, Brad deBorde, Eduardo Solaeche-Gomez and Dan Wallace all winning on day 3.
Michigan’s incoming freshman Clara Smiddy kicked things off, winning the women’s 100 back in 1:01.69. That was enough to top Katie Hoff, last night’s big winner by almost a second. Hoff was 1:02.50 competing for Hurricane Aquatics.
Rousseau got his win in the men’s 100 back. His 55.33 topped Florida State Seminole Pavel Sankovich‘s 55.68.
In the women’s 200 IM, T2’s Justine Bowker had a strong swim, beating out Olympian Elizabeth Beisel for the win. Bowker was 2:15.70, with Beisel second at 2:16.35. Solaeche-Gomez won a second-straight event for the Gator men, going 2:00.74 to win the men’s version of the event.
Florida Gator Natalie Hinds, competing for the City of Midland, went 25.42 to win the women’s 50. She beat FSU’s Sviatlana Khakhlova by a tenth. Her college teammate Brad deBorde went 22.98 to win the men’s race, the only man under 23 on the night.
Former UNC Tar Heel Stephanie Peacock had a nice swim to win the women’s 400 free. Peacock hasn’t competed much since the NCAA Championships, but went 4:12.00 here to top Gator Swim Club’s Jessica Thielmann by just .09. The men’s event went to Wallace at 3:53.03, and was a Gator Swim Club 1-2. Mitch D’Arrigo was 3:53.40 for second place.
