NOVA of Virginia’s Zoe Dixon, 17, had an incredible meet at last week’s NCSA Summer Championships, clocking personal bests in 6 events, and breaking 3 meet records. Dixon’s top races came in the IMs, of which she won both the 200 and 400, breaking both meet records as well.
In the 200 IM, Dixon’s final individual event, she roared to a new lifetime best of 2:12.62, bettering her previous best by 1.27 seconds. The swim broke the previous record held by Torri Huske, and gave Dixon her highest all-time ranking of any of her races last week. Dixon is now ranked #18 all-time in the 17-18 girls age group.
Dixon is now nearing the top 10 all-time for 17-year-olds in the event. Her 2:12.62 lifts her up to #13 among 17-year-olds:
