In his final race in Knoxville, Steven Stumph finished first in the 200 breaststroke setting a new Junior National Championship Meet record with his time of 1:55.88. This was also a personal best for Steven. Congratulations!
Per USA Swimming, Steven's swim was one of the Top 10 Swims of Jr Nationals:
"9. Steven Stumph’s 200
Anytime you see a high schooler taking out a 200 breaststroke in :55 seconds, you know you’re going to have a spectacular race. Stumph absolutely crushed the field in this event by nearly three seconds, en route to an incredible 1:55.88. To put this into context, Stumph would be nearly cracking the NCAA Top 10 performances this year with that swim, and he’s just a high schooler. The Orinda Aquatics swimmer is USC-bound, where you know he’ll improve under head coach and breaststroking guru Dave Salo."
