On Saturday, the seniors competed in the 200 breast, 50 free, 100 back, 500 free, and 400 medley relay.

One of the top performers of the day was Toby Barnett, a 17-year-old out of Rockville-Montgomery Swim Club, who won both the men’s 100 back and 500 free. In the 100 back, Barnett swam a 49.03, marking a new personal best by nearly a full second. Barnett, an Indiana recruit, downed a 3-month-old personal best with the swim.

He would then go on to take the men’s 500 free in 4:26.42, finishing first by 11 seconds. That swim also marks a personal best by 2 seconds.

Camille Spink (NCAP) won the women’s 500 free in 4:47.16, winning the event by nearly 11 seconds. Coming into the meet, Spink had a personal best of 4:49.51 in the 500, which she cracked in prelims with a 4:47.66, then lowered it again in finals. Primarily a 50-100-200 freestyler, Spink used her speed in the race, taking the first 100 out in 52.99.

Mason Makos 17-year-old Katherine Helms took the women’s 100 back in a decisive victory, swimming a 54.31. The swim marked Helms’ first time under 55 seconds in the event. Helms is an NC State recruit, set to start this fall.

Nation’s Capital 17-year-old Eleanor Sun won the women’s in a new personal best of 2:14.75. The swim chipped nearly a full second off the Princeton recruit’s previous best, which she had set in October of 2021. It was FISH’s Aiken Do who won the men’s 200 breast, nearly breaking 2:00 for the first time. Do, a Virginia Tech recruit, swam a 2:00.46, clipping his previous best of 2:00.80, which is from 2020.
