This week’s Sectional Championship meet in Roseville, California is one of two that will split the field for what is usually a single-site California-Nevada Summer Sectional Championship. The other site is in the southern part of the state in Fullerton, a northern Orange County city.

The northern site in Roseville is featuring some of the current premier club teams in the sport, including Alto Swim Club (Stanford’s club team). As she has been for the last several months, La Mirada Armada’s Kayla Han is making waves. The newly-turned 13-year-old is on a tear, yet again. She won the women’s 1500 free in 16:52.75, which may seem somewhat tame compared to her IM times, but marked an astonishing 91.07-second drop from her previous best (18:23.82), which she had just swum in April of this year. The swim also makes Han the 11th-fastest 13-year-old American all-time in the event.

In addition to her mile, Han clocked a 59.00 in prelims of the 100 free. The swim put her 11th in the heats, although she subsequently scratched finals, and marked a personal best by over 2 seconds.

Winning the women’s 100 free was Quicksilver Swimming’s Ella Mazurek, 17, who posted a 56.63. She was right ahead of Brea Aquatics 22-year-old Kenisha Liu, who swam a 56.67. 15-year-old Bailey Hartman of Crow Canyon County Club Sharks rounded out the top 3, swimming a 56.84.

Stanford swimmers were in control of the men’s 100 free. Leon MacAlister, a rising junior, posted a 50.10 to win the event, with fellow junior Luke Maurer taking 2nd in 50.66. Michael Lincoln, a Brown swimmer, took 3rd in 50.95, while Stanford’s Jonathan Affeld came in 4th with a 51.41.

Lakeridge Swim Club’s Luke Hobson, 18, won the men’s 800 free in 8:19.97. The swim was 3 seconds off his personal best. Ana Adame, an 18-year-old out of Canyons Aquatic Club, took the women’s 200 breast in 2:32.96, marking a new personal best by over 3 seconds.

Terrapins 18-year-old Adrian Dulay clocked a 2:18.32 to win the men’s 200 breast, establishing a new personal best by 4.41 seconds. Scarlet Aquatics 20-year-old Ashlyn Fiorilli posted a 2:15.26 to win the women’s 200 fly, while Stanford’s Rick Mihm took the men’s 200 fly in 2:02.76.

Does anyone know why there’s a Fullerton Sectional and Roseville Sectional? Isn’t there usually just one CA/NV Sectional meet?
