MEN’S 200 BREAST:

  1. Josh Prenot– 2:09.49
  2. Reece Whitley– 2:14.99

Josh Prenot picked up his first win of the meet tonight, leading start to finish to win the men’s 200 breast. Prenot finished over 5 seconds faster than anyone else in the final, clocking a 2:09.49. That clips his previous season best of 2:09.50 from Arena Pro Swim Orlando.

Reece Whitley and Moises Loschi were locked in a close battle for 2nd. Loschi started to catch up to Whitley on the back hald, but Whitley held on for 2nd in 2:14.99 to Loschi’s 2:15.47.
