Phoebe Bacon is another young swimmer in the States putting up impressive times this weekend, though she might not be smashing records like Regan Smith or Alex Walsh. Bacon, who competed at the Olympic Trials this summer as a 13-year-old, kicked off her weekend with a 25.20 medley relay lead off. She then won the 13-14 100 fly in 53.42, making her the 7th all-time performer in the event in 13-14 history.

Bacon also swam the 400 IM, where she touched 5th (4:24.10) in the 13-14 division. Winning that race was 13-year-old Grace Sheble of NOVA of Virginia with a 4:13.96, vaulting her to the #12 ranking in the 13-14 age group. Sheble touched ahead of 14-year-old Isabel Gormley of AGUA; Gormley won the 13-14 200 free with a 1:49.49.

Another 14-year-old, Machine Aquatics’ Anna Keating, swam a 1:01.80 in the 100 breast to move to 15th all-time in the 13-14 age group and win the age division race. Winning the open race was NCAP‘s Anna Belousova in 1:00.76– she also took the 400 IM open race in 4:13.79. Spencer Rowe of NCAP was 54.90 for the men’s race win.

For the senior boys, Sam Pomajevich was big last night with two wins. He took the 200 free in 1:35.58, while he scratched the 400 IM after swimming it in prelims to focus on the 100 fly. The Texas commit won that race, too, with a 47.49. Virginia Tech commit Lane Stone broke the 15-minute barrier in the mile, touching to win the race in 14:59.93.

15-year-old Bridget Semenuk of CPAC had a great anchor leg on the medley relay, which CPAC won. She held it down with a 22.49 on the free leg. Meanwhile, Machine Aquatics’ Thomas Hallock mustered a 19.55 anchor on Machine’s medley relay.
