On day 2 for the NCSA Spring Juniors meet, NCAP’s Phoebe Bacon put up the 4th-fastest 200 back time for the girls 15-16 age group.
In the final of the 200 back, Bacon came in as the top seed with a 1:51.79, which originally had her at #8 in the 15-16 ranks. However, Bacon dropped even more time to swim a 1:50.71, finishing second behind fellow 16-year-old backstroke stud Isabelle Stadden (Aquajets Swim Team).
Bacon’s time now joins and elite group of swimmers, including Stadden and NAG-holder Regan Smith, in the 200 back rankings.
