Until the action at U.S. nationals starts up this Wednesday all we have to scratch the swim nerd itch is…
Burchill swam a new lifetime best in the 100 free on Sunday morning, which adds to previous best long course times already this year in the 50 free, 200 free, 400 free, and 100 fly.
Georgia postgrad Melanie Margalis swam the 100 breast this morning, qualifying for the B final at 13th. Margalis scratched the 200 IM, one of her signature events, later in the session. Tonight, she’s scratched out of the 100 breast.
Connery was 2:07.39 in prelims, which put the 14-year-old a a tie for 5th in the age group rankings. Tonight, he moves up to #2 behind only Michael Andrew.
