Coached by Ronnie, Mary Ashby and Talbot Jacobs competed for Orinda Aquatics at the 2014 Speedo Junior National (long course) held in Irvine, California. Ashby swam the 50 free ((27.30), 100 free (59.06), 100 back (1:05.64), and time trialed the 200 free where she earned a personal best 2:07.76. Jacobs finished this leg of his Orinda Aquatics "career" earning best times in the four events he swam: 200 free (1:54.17), 400 free (3:59.05 - 17th place and his first sub 4 minute), 100 back (59.72 TT) and the 200 back (2:08.13). In just a few weeks, Jacobs will continue his aquatic career swimming for Brown University. Way to go OA!
