In the 100 breast, she used her front half speed to get an edge over Denver’s Amanda Sanders, winning in 1:02.63 to Sanders’ 1:02.64.

Nack, on the other hand, set her Pool Record in the 200 fly. She won the race in 2:00.95, leading the field by over 5 seconds. She came back to win the 100 fly on Saturday, clocking a 54.88 ahead of Denver’s Heidi Bradley (56.33).

On the men’s side, Minnesota’s Daryl Turner set multiple Pool Records. His first record came in the 100 back on Friday, as he swam to a 47.63 to edge out Denver backstroke ace Anton Loncar (48.22). On Saturday, Turner took down the 100 fly mark after winning the event in 47.51.
