After winning their first title since 2013 at last year’s meet, the Southlake Carroll girls repeated as champions at the 2020 Texas 6A State Championships. Southlake’s Kit Kat Zenick contributed to the team win with a sprint sweep as she set a 6A Record in prelims of the 50 free with a lifetime best 22.30. Zenick, an Ohio State commit, narrowly missed that record as she won finals in 22.38. She also swam a personal best 49.05 to win the 100 free. Teammate Corbyn Cormack also turned in a win for Southlake, dropping over a second to win the 200 IM in 2:00.39.

The Woodlands’ Lillie Nordmann took down and 11-year-old 6A Record in the 200 free to defend her title. She dropped nearly 2 seconds from her best as she won the race in 1:43.62. That blew away the former 11-year-old record by a second. Nordmann was also just a tenth shy of the 6A Record in the 100 fly, clipping her best in 52.00. Additionally, Nordmann anchored the 400 free relay in 48.39. She’ll join her older sister, Lucie, at Stanford next year.

I’m glad to see another super-suit record gone. That was a fast 200 free.

Very impressive swim by Nordmann. The aggressive turns and 10-yard kickouts off every wall are next-level

Not just that but she kicked the first 3/4 dolphin kicks fully on her back, then 2/3 on side, then 2/3 on front, and 1/2 strokes before her first breath…off all 7 turns!!
