US World Junior Roster Updates: Torri Huske Adds 100 Fly to Budapest Line-Up


Only two more individual events were contested on night 3 of the US national championships, the 400 IM and 100 fly. More spots for priority 2 are beginning to open up as multi-event talents are adding more swims to their Budapest line-up.

Qualifiers (Priority 1)

  • These athletes should be locked in, provided they don’t decline their roster spots.

No new names were added on the boys’ side. Luca Urlando, despite finishing 8th in the A-final of the 100 fly, earned his third individual swim in Budapest along with the 200 free and 200 fly. Carson Foster‘s world junior record-breaking efforts also earned him a third swim along with the 200 free and 200 back.

Potential Qualifiers (Priority 2 & 3)

  • These athletes are in line for selection, but need enough athletes to double up in events to be officially added to the roster.

The priority 1 doubles qualifiers is now up to 5 names, slowly starting to increase the priority 2/3 boys’ chances of being selected to the World Junior roster. Jason Louser‘s 400 IM and Blake Manoff‘s 100 fly will now be added into the mix for the chance to join the roster.

The A-final of the 100 fly was a very tight race, with the top 6 finishers overall all under 58 seconds. 15-year-old Claire Curzan was also under the great Mary T. Meagher‘s 100 fly NAG, yet finished behind Huske for 5th place. Grace Sheble also just missed touching out Isabel Gormley for the top junior spot in the 400 IM.
