Pretty wild that A Walsh owns exactly one NCAA record, and it’s in 200 fly (maybe her 10th best event when she committed)

Coincidentally, that’s one of the only events Kate Douglass didn’t swim…
I’m sure Alex is going to get her hands on one or two more come NCAAs

With how she swam at ACCs, if she hits her taper and swims the 400 IM at NCs I figure Eastin’s record is gone
