There was a 5-way tie for 24th place in prelims of the girls 50 free at the 2022 US Junior Nationals, resulting in a 5-person swim-off.
This morning’s prelims session will be a short one, featuring just the 200 IM and 50 free.
The stakes were high, but that didn’t stop all 5 of these young swimmers from delivering great performances.
Of the five swimmers who will race in a swim-off this afternoon in Irvine, Julia Wozniak is the only one who swam a best time in prelims.
Lakeside Aquatic Club’s 14-year-old Cooper Lucas was smashing record left and right. He took down a trio of records set by World Junior Champion Sean Grieshop
14 year old Ana Herceg was one of Nitro’s top scorers, winning all 5 of her individual events, and breaking 3 individual meet records and a relay meet record.
