Daniel Roy of King Aquatic Club lowered the meet record in the men’s 200m breast, while three other swimmers – Alexander Zettle, Zoie Hartman and Carson Foster – added to their win totals on night four of the Speedo Junior National Championships at the Nassau County Aquatic Center.
In the women’s 200m free, the fastest time of the night came out of the B final from Magnolia Aquatic Club’s Lucie Nordmann (2:00.01), but North Baltimore’s Easop Lee will be credited with the win after swimming a 2:00.08 to win the A final. Meanwhile, Alexander Zettle of Lakeside Aquatic Club picked up his second win of the meet with a 1:49.13 in the men’s race, the only sub-1:50 swim of the meet.
Crow Canyon’s Zoie Hartman swept the breaststroke events this week, taking home the 200m breast title tonight in 2:28.09. King Aquatic Club’s Daniel Roy did the same on the men’s side and added a meet record to his resume in the men’s 200m breast with a 2:11.25. Penn Charter Aquatics’ Reece Whitley set the previous record of 2:12.17 back in 2015.
