Day 2 of the USA Swimming Futures Championships in Santa Clara saw a handful of young swimmers competing, and holding their own, against current college swimmers.

Fifteen-year-old Anicka Delgado of the Gators Swim Club opened things up with a win in the 200 free in a time of 2:04.30. She went out in a 28 and never looked back.

In the 400 IM and final women’s event of the night, fifteen-year-old Bianca Yongyuth’s (South Carolina Swim Club) strong breaststroke split (1:26.22) carried her to first place as she touched in 4:57.28.
