2016 NASA cup

This is the second year that TNT has participated in the NASA Junior National Cup in Clearwater, Florida, and it is the second year that Sierra Jett of Selma earned second swims. Last year Sierra swam the 50 fly, 50 free and 100 free in finals, and this year she repeated the experience in the 50 fly and 50 free, then made it back in the 100 butterfly event. She was the top finisher in the consolation heat of the 50 meter butterfly (28.53) after swimming to a 12th place finish in the short course 50 free (23.82). Her other finals included a 13th place in the 100 fly (56.60 prelim yards and 1:05.02 final meter), and a 14th place finish in the 50 free (23.82 prelim yards and 27.35 final meter).

Aubrey Holbert of Selma made her first trip to the meet, and earned a second swim in the 200 butterfly event on the last day of the meet with her yard time of 2:15.19 in the preliminary heats placing her as third alternate. Two seeds in the bonus heat, and one alternate scratched, pushing her into the heat. The preliminary swim was her highest place of 27th.
