Eighteen TNT swimmers competed at the Juanita Allington Memorial Senior Meet that took place over the past weekend of February, and six of them earned a second swim in one of three final heats. Fifteen year old Mallory Korenwinder maintained the largest number of finals, earning four second swims in the five that she entered, and also came home with the team’s highest place. Mallory swam 2:18.30 in the 200 breaststroke event for a 3rd place finish, and matched that place in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:04.04. Her 2:09.36 was enough for a 6th place finish in the championship heat, and finally, she swam 58.48 in the 100 fly to finish 15th in the consolation heat.
Chris Nolan, after returning from his meet in Osaka, Japan, came home with three second swims that included a 5th place finish in the 200 fly after swimming a 1:53.14 in the preliminary heats. He had two tenth place finishes that included the 100 fly resulting from his time of 51.64, and the 100 breaststroke where his time of 1:00.98 was just ahead of teammate Cody Nash of Selma who finished 12th in the consolation heat with his time of 1:01.84.
Our other multi-finalist was Owen Ansel with two bonus finals, his highest place winning the consolation heat with a 17th place finish in the 100 breaststroke resulting from his 1:02.38. His other final came after swimming 2:16.27 in the C-final in the 200 breaststroke, and finishing 19th there. Selma swimmer Noah Haworth came home with a final in the 100 fly after swimming 53.09 in the preliminary heats, while Khloe McCarthy competed in the consolation heat in the 200 IM after swimming 2:13.27 in the preliminary heats.
