Headed into the fourth day of prelims, the Long Island duo of Kristen Romano and Margaret Aroesty are set up to dominate yet another day. Romano is seeded first in the 100 butterfly and fourth in the 100 backstroke, while Aroesty is the top seed in the 200 breaststroke. Greater Tampa’s Morgan Tankersley is seeded three seconds ahead of the rest of the field in the 500 freestyle, and she will look to pick up her second freestyle win of the weekend. The women will compete in the 100 backstroke, 500 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, and 100 butterfly.
On the men’s side, Jack Dolan of Rockwood holds the top seed in two back-to-back events, the 100 backstroke and 100 freestyle. Penn Charter’s Reece Whitley is currently seeded first in the 200 breaststroke, and he will shoot to sweep the breaststroke events. Likewise, after winning the 50 butterfly, Kingfish’s Camden Murphy will tackle the 100 of that stroke. The men will compete in the 100 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, 100 butterfly, and 800 freestyle relay.
