If the first night of timed finals is any indication, this year’s NCSA Junior Nationals will be a historically fast meet. Matthew Hirschberger and Sierra Schmidt each put up top-20-ranked 1000 frees for under-18s all-time on opening night.
Stone Ridge freshman Phoebe Bacon was arguably the top swimmer of the meet as she took home to titles and set one meet record in the process.
Canada’s Mary-Sophie Harvey, who has had a great meet so far, is opting out of the 800 free on day 3.
One of the big name scratches for day 2 prelims is NC State’s Simonas Bilis, who was entered as the top seed in the 50 free.
