The 3rd day of the Mt Hood Sectionals meet featured the 200 back, 400 free, 100 breast, and 100 fly individually. In the men’s 200 back, Swim Neptune’s Keaton Jones, a Cal recruit, won with a 2:02.07. While he touched first by nearly 3 seconds, Jones was well off his personal best of 1:57.97, which he swam at the International Team Trials in late April. Similarly, Phoenix Swim Club’s Kennedy Noble, a future NC State swimmer, won the women’s 200 back by 2 seconds, clocking a 2:13.64. Noble’s time was also well off her personal best of 2:10.53, which was also set at the International Team Trials.

King Aquatic Club 16-year-old Camden Doane took the women’s 400 free in a huge new personal best of 4:20.18. The swim took 3 seconds off her previous best, which she swam at the Mel Zajac Jr. International meet last month.

Multnomah Athletic Club’s Thomas Olsen, 16, won the men’s 400 free in 4:01.76, blowing away his previous best of 4:17.18, which he swam two months ago. He swam a remarkably consistent race, splitting 2:00.29 on the first 200m, then coming home in 2:01.47. King Aquatic Club 14-year-old Aiden Hammer also had a huge personal best en route to taking 2nd. Hammer touched in 4:02.26, clearing his previous best of 4:08.58 by 6 seconds.

In the women’s 100 breast, Tualatin Hills Swim Club’s Katherine Adams (17) claimed victory in 1:11.54. She was a touch faster in prelims, where she posted a 1:11.51. Foothills Swim Team 17-year-old Josh Corn took the men’s 100 breast in a photo finish, swimming a 1:04.29. BYU’s Evan Vandersluis touched right behind Corn, swimming a 1:04.30. Spokane Waves Aquatic Team’s Drew Kistler, who will be starting at the University of Minnesota next month, took 3rd in 1:04.66.

The women’s 100 fly was won decisively by Flying Fish Arizona Swim Team’s Tyler Driscoll, an NC State recruit. She swam a 1:00.40, which is notably far faster than the 1:02.26 she swam two weeks ago at Arizona Senior Championships, which had stood as her personal best until last night.

University of Denver’s Hunter Hilltoppers’ Hunter Foehner, a Georgia Tech commit, won the men’s 100 fly in 54.45, touching out Keaton Jones (54.57).
