The 3rd day of the PV Long Course Championships featured the 200 fly, 100 back, and 400 free. 15-year-old Torri Huske swam a 2:15.61 200 fly, dropping 2.38 seconds from her previous best time of 2:17.99. Probably the most incredible thing about her race is that she split 35.00 on her last 3 50’s. Huske went out in 30.61, then posted 35.00 for the next 3 50’s.
15-year-old Paige McKenna won the women’s 400 free, posting a 4:17.59. That time marked McKenna’s first sub-4:20 performance ever, and marked a nearly 6 second time drop fro her previous best of 4:23.07. McKenna took the race out aggressively, hitting the 200 mark at 2:05.39 (1:01.37/1:04.02). She then followed it up with a 1:06.11 on the 3rd 100 and 1:06.09 on the 4th 100. 13-year-old Erin Gemmell, the daughter of Bruce Gemmell, came in 3rd in the 400 free after winning the 200 the day before. Gemmell posted a 4:21.88, dropping 6.46 seconds from her previous best time of 4:28.34. Gemmell nearly even-split the race, posting a 2:10.19 on the first 200, and 2:11.69 on the 2nd 200.
Hugh Robey, 18, took the men’s 200 fly with a 2:03.35. Robey was out fast, touching the 100 wall in 57.18 (27.32/29.86), but fell off a bit coming home, posting a 1:06.17 (32.87/33.30) on the last 100. That time comes in under his previous best time of 2:04.09. Robey was almost run down by runner-up Alex Colson, 17, who finished in 2:03.73. Robey was out in 58.87 (27.50/31.37), and back in 1:04.86 (32.93/31.93).
