Mallory Korenwinder and Christopher Nolan were our only qualifies for Santa Clara International this year at a meet where the qualifying criteria had been adjusted to reflect the summer Junior National time standard. The swim meet offered D-finals (places 28th – 36th) for the first time, and both swimmers advanced to that heat in four combined events. Mallory had three second swims beginning in the 200 breaststroke where her time of 2:42.78 placed 35th, and set a new team record by swimming under Lauren Davis’s time of 2:45.55 established at long course Sectionals last summer. Mallory’s time currently stands as the 17th fastest nationally among girls of age 15. Mallory placed 32nd in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:15.34, and this time improved her own team record that she set the previous weekend in Clovis. The time stands as the 15th fastest nationally. Her final top 36 swim came in the 32nd place finish in the 400 IM, with a time of 5:18.27. Christopher Nolan became the heat winner of the D-finals in the 200 fly event with his time of 2:05.84.
