Tennessee’s 2019 100 fly state champion, Spencer Jyawook has announced his intention to swim for the Saint Leo University Lions’ class of 2024.
With that swim, Worden came in just under the 2020 Olympic Trials cut of 2:14.59.
According to the SWIMS database, it’s the 4th fastest time by a 13-year-old all-time.
After posting a lifetime best 200 free on the first day of the NAC Summer Sizzler, former Texas Longhorn Sam Stewart scratched the rest of the meet.
Stewart won the men’s 200 free with a 1:51.60, shedding .29 seconds off his personal best.
Alex Walsh was one of 3 state record breakers for Harpeth Hall on day 1 of the Tennessee State Championship meet, but that wasn’t enough to hold a points lead over a deep Baylor School team.
