Girls 200 Free

Results of the girls 200 free are not complete on Meet Mobile. We’ll have a recap when full results are available.

Boys 200 Free

Francis Haas won his third event in as many nights by taking the 200 free in 1:35.26. After barely breaking his career best this morning, Haas was way under it in finals for NOVA. Tristan Sanders of Palm Harbor YMCA rolled into second, going 1:36.42, a lifetime-best of his own.

Sanders just beat out Liam Egan of Crimson Aquatics. Egan took third in 1:36.79, the last 1:36 of the championship heat. Michigan high schooler Nick Arakelian was 1:37.08 for fourth and Jack Boyd moved up to fifth for Sweet Home Aquatics, just beating Knox Auerbach from Dynamo 1:37.65 to 1:37.68.

James Murphy of Machine and Nicholas Bigot from North Bay rounded out the heat at 1:38s. From the “B” heat, Michael Andrew broke his second NAG of the weekend, going 1:38.31 for the top 13-14 mark of all-time.

Girls 50 Breast

Samantha Senczyszyn moved up from the 2-seed to win the girls 50 breast. The Ozaukee (Wisconsin) product went 28.08 to take another half-second off her prelims swim after winning the 100 breast last night. Her northern neighbor Olivia Anderson (Aquajets of Minnesota) took second at 28.19.

Those two raced out ahead of the rest of the field, which tightened up from there. Top seed Ingrid Wall of New Trier went 28.50, just ahead of 13-year-old Alexis Wenger (28.54) of Grosse Point. Molly Washko and Jamie Christy dueled it out behind them, with Washko taking fifth in 28.74 to Christy’s 28.79.

Anderson’s Aquajets teammate Rae Bullinger took seventh with Natalie Pierce rounding out the field for Birmingham-Bloomfield of Michigan.

The B final went to St. Charles’ Shea Hoyt in 28.66, the fifth-fastest time overall. Janet Hu was also in that heat, tying for 15th place in 29.43.

Boys 50 Breast

Conner Hoppe out of Clovis took home the NCSA title in a time of 24.57. Hoppe was seeded second heading into finals and out-touched Nation Capitols’ Carsten Vissering, who finished second in 24.76. Michael Andrew, the evenings top seed, took a third place finish in 24.96.

The B-Final saw Nicholas Lamontagne take the top spot, touching in 25.40.  Ben Gorski (Arlington Aquatic Club) took second in 25.48 followed by Shane McNamara (Empire Swimming) who finished third at 25.51.

You are a little late. 🙂


Is meet mobile for this meet being super problematic for anyone else? Some of the results only show up on the app an hour after they’ve actually been swum, and half the time the pages just won’t load.

You’re not the only one. Meet Mobile seems pretty glitchy at the moment – 200 free results for girls are unofficial and incomplete.


I can’t find it on meet mobile at all. Searching 2014
