It was also a hit parade of best times in the 200 backstrokes. Jessica Pentlarge won the girls 200 back in 2:18.02, destroying her old best time of 2:19.75 prior to this week. Pentlarge swims for North Coast Aquatics. Then Bakersfield’s Robert Moseley went 2:06.75 to shave another half-second off his best in winning the boys race.
