Seven TNT swimmers competed at the Cal Invitational hosted and run by the Cal Berkley Mens swim team over the January 19-20 weekend. This approved meet that serves as a fundraiser for the defending NCAA Cal mens team offered a trials and finals formatted meet with the top 16 swimmers being considered finalist for each event. All seven TNT swimmers finished in the top-16 in at least one event at the meet.
Top 16 finalists were led by our top finisher, Chris Nolan, who swam to three championship finishes including a 3rd place finish in both the 200 fly (1:55.65) and 200 IM (2:00.77), a 6th place finish in the 400 IM (4:16.73) and a 7th place finish in the 100 breast (1:02.82). Only two other TNT swimmers finished in the top-8, and these included Matlyn Morris who swam to a 4th place finish in the 100 back (1:01.05) as well as a 6th place finish in the 200 back (2:18.30), along with Khloe McCarthy who finished 5th in the 100 back with a time of 2:13.37.
Our consolation swims included Owen Ansel (200 free 11th & 100 free 12th), Josh Avila (200 IM 11th and 14th in both the 200 breast and 100 breast), Katelyn Herrera (400 IM 14th), Conor Martin (100 fly 11th & 100 breast 16th), and Khloe McCarthy (200 IM 12th, and 13th in both the 200 breast and 100 breast).
