Senior Swimmer Evonne Stehr attended the USA swimming Jr Nationals in Iowa City, Iowa. Evonne swam three out of four Best Times, achieving Three Team Records and significantly improved in her overall ranking at the Meet. Evonne’s Open Team Record of 1:51.03 in the Women’s 200 Free makes her the fastest 200 Freestyler in SWAT History.
This was Evonne’s first Junior National experience, she represented herself and SWAT well.
