Kendall secured her 2nd victory of the meet with a quick 52.13 in the 100 fly. Arcila, on the other hand, brought home the 100 back gold with a dominant 52.64.

U.S. Olympic medalist Amanda Weir took on the 200 free on day 2, using her front half speed to lead from start to finish. Weir touched in 1:45.53 to take the gold, finishing nearly 3 seconds ahead of the field. Austin Swim Club’s Matthew Willenbring had a fast swim in the men’s version of that event. He was able to hold off a late charge from Missouri’s Nicholas Davis to win a tight race, touching in 1:35.26 to Davis’ 1:35.38.
