The first full day of racing at the Richmond PSS gets underway this morning with heats of the 200 free, 100 breast, 100 fly, and 400 IM.
Nelson has had some phenomenal swims recently, most notably his epic battles with fellow North Carolina-native Sam Hoover in the 400 IM and 200 IM.
The combined results of the multi-site 18 & Under Winter Championships have been finalized, capping a virtual win for North Carolina’s TAC Titans.
The rankings aren’t final, as meet results are still trickling into the database. But the qualifying period has closed on the virtual Junior Championships.
The qualifying period is halfway through, and Arlington Aquatic Club’s Torri Huske leads four events in USA Swimming’s current Winter Juniors result ranks.
Both boys hit lifetime bests, as Nelson entered the meet with a best of 1:47.17, and Hoover 1:47.00.
The swim elevates Rainey to 15th in the all-time 15-16 rankings in the event.
Sam Hoover was down by more than 3 seconds at the halfway point of the meet behind Baylor Nelson, but fought back to grab the win.
SwimMAC held their third sanctioned swim meet post-quarantine over the weekend. Tim Connery, the #4 recruit in his class, finished the meet with 3 event wins.
