Day 2 of Junior Nationals was another succesful day in the
Clippers Championship season. The day was highlighted by 5
individual swims at finals and two scoring relays.
Krissie Brandenburg - Finished a strong 21st in the 100 Freestyle and followed it up later in the night with a 13th place finish in the 200 backstroke and the 11th fastest time in the meet.
Caitlyn Forman - Finished an impressive 200 backstroke in 9th place with the 7th fastest time overall in the meet.
Ellen Williamson - Climbed onto the podium tonight as she finished in an Ohio LSC Record Breaking swim with a 4th place finish. Ellen also swam the 200 fly in prelims with a qualifying time that placed her 17th but opted out of the swim with the 800 free relay right after the fly at finals.
Shane Coltharp - Put together a good 200 backstroke this morning with a 26th place finish. Tonight at finals he pulled away from the field to win his heat with a 12 meter streamline on his last turn.
To finish off the night our 800 free relays took to the pool with very very special swims. The girls relay of Ellen Williamson, Molly Hinken, Mary Bank and Krissie Brandenburg smashed the team record by 7 seconds and finished 10th overall. The boys relay of Shane Coltharp, Cole Garriott, Conner Downard and Rob Walsh muscled their way into a 16th place finish and the 2nd fastest relay in Clippers history.
Stay tuned for more results....
