Sharli Brady and Lilly Morgan are continuing to represent the Clippers to their finest at the Speedo Sectional Championships. Way to Go Girls
Sharli Brady and Lilly Morgan had a very successful day of swimming yesterday at the Speedo Sectional Championships in Indianapolis. This seasons meet is a long course meet so the girls went up without training any long course. That obviously did not phase them.
Lilly competed in the 100 backstroke where she went a lifetime best time of 1:12:07. This time placed her 67th and 3rd over all for 12 yr old girls.
Sharli competed in the 400 free where she went a lifetime best time of 4:38 and finished 39th overall. Later she competed in the 200 Butterfly where she finished a very impressive 9th place after qualifying 12th in the morning. She won the consolation heat with a time of 2:22.
Sharli is right back where she ended the day yesterday swimming fast times and qualifying for finals. This morning she competed in the 200 IM and blazed to a best time of 2:28.02. This qualified her 10th overall and she is the fastest 14&under in the meet in this event.
Update at NCAA’s
Cory Chitwood shook off the illness he experienced earlier in the week in very exciting fashion. After a good swim in the morning but not what he wanted, Cory qualified 10th in the 100 backstroke going a best time of 46.5. Frustrated by his place of 10th, He came back to finals on a mission. He wanted to throw up a time that would make the final heat work hard to beat and that is what he did. Cory blazed to an amazing time of :45.77, a time that would have seeded him #1 and it has now put him into the Top 20 all time NCAA performance in the 100 back(without a hi-tech suit!!). His time held up as the 2nd fastest overall in the meet.
