DCST National Results (Day 2)


Day 2 of the YMCA National Championships was highlighted by DCST’s Women’ 400 yard Freestyle Relay of Emily Launer, Katie Hallenbeck, Casey Jepsen and Emily Waller who set the DCST Team Record by a whopping 4.56 seconds with a time of 3:37.03. With this relay’s performance and considering Emily Waller’s 2.5 second time drop in her 200 yard Freestyle (1:54.47) and Casey Jepsen’s 3.70 time drop in the time trial 200 yard Freestyle (1:56.08), DCST is looking for bigger and better things on Wednesday (Day 3) of the National Championship Meet in the Women’s 800 yard Freestyle Relay. Casey Jepsen’s time in the 200 yard Freestyle qualified her for both the 2009 Summer and 2010 Winter National Championships.
Other highlights of the day included Grant Alef and David Gordon both swimming faster than the DCST Team Record in the Men’s 1000 yard Freestyle with times of 9:41.75 and 9:42.99 respectively. Chad Thompson’s 200 Freestyle time trial time of 1:49.00 and 1.83 second time dropped earned him the qualifying time for the Summer National Championship Meet.
