Among those who obtained new time standards were Kathryn George (Girl’s 13&14 100 Meter Breaststroke, 13&14 200 Meter Breaststroke, 15&16 200 Meter Breaststroke, and Senior 200 Meter Breaststroke); Brittany Zobl (Girls 13&14 100 Meter Freestyle and 200 Meter Backstroke); and Paige Scheriger (Girl’s 11&12 50 Meter Backstroke, Senior 100 Meter Breaststroke).
