The 2017 Futures Championships have four meets going on this weekend, and action got underway Thursday with the distance events and the 4×200 free relays.
At the Nashville championship, Tennessee Aquatics jumped out to a sizeable combined points lead on day 1 as they swept both the men’s and women’s relays.
The women’s 4×200 saw them come in just over two seconds clear of Dynamo Swim Club, posting a time of 8:29.29. They were led by Carissa Armijo, who opened in a time of 2:05.61.
Dynamo, who finished in 8:31.52, had their fastest split come from Calista Murray (2:05.92) on the 2nd leg.
Tennessee went on to win the men’s event in 7:43.49, with SwimMac (7:45.80) 2nd and the Marlins of Raleigh (7:46.70) 3rd. Alexander Hines (1:54.90) and Benjamin Fenwick (1:55.04) had the fastest splits for the top two teams respectively, both on the lead-off leg.
Individually, Elise Bauer of the Central Florida Marlins won the women’s 800, and Cole Forbes of Area Tallahassee won the men’s mile.
Bauer (8:53.49) edged out Madison Murtagh (8:54.95) of Fast Lane Aquatics, while Forbes (15:53.63) was the only one sub-16:00 for the men. SwimMac’s Jamison Rzepecki (16:01.08) won a close race for silver.
