Day 2 of YMCA Nationals was again highlighted by a new national record. This time it was Countryside’s Emily Slabe in the 100 backstroke.
Another Middle Tyger podium finish came from 16-year old Katrina Konopka, on her second swim of the finals session, with a 22.46.
Courtney Weaver was successful in winning her 10th career YMCA National Championship, and even though she couldn’t match her record-breaking prelims swim of 52.51, Weaver still had a comfortable margin of victory with a 52.87 for the title.
Courtney Weaver put up a lifetime-best 52.51 to nab the top seed in the girls 100 fly, starting off YMCA Nationals with a bang.
