WOMEN’S 200 FLY
Canada’s Audrey Lacroix will leave Orlando as the meet’s unquestioned top female butterflyer. The 31-year-old won the 200 fly one day after taking the 100. Lacroix was 2:10.37, winning handily over a field with some international experience.
Runner-up was Cal Aquatics’ Caitlin Leverenz, who’s been having a great meet so far. Leverenz was 2:11.98, nearly her own personal best. Leverenz is probably not going to compete in the 200 fly internationally, but that swim is a good sign for her IMs, as was a lifetime-best 200 free last night.
15-year-old Courtney Harnish of York YMCA continued to impress, taking third in 2:12.54. That beat Scottish star Hannah Miley, last night’s double winner, by about half a second.
Miley (2:12.96) was followed by 16-year-old Delaney Walz (2:14.34) and 15-year-old Brit Amelia Clynes (2:14.81).
Rounding out the A final were two more internationals, Mexico’s Diana Luna Sanchez (2:15.37) and Venezuela’s Andreina Pinto (2:16.15).
