Just as she did on night one at the CeraVe Invite, North Baltimore’s Easop Lee put together two wins among a night of tight racing Saturday at the CeraVe Invite in Piscataway, N.J.
Lee took first in the women’s 50 free, finishing in 26.81 before finishing second in the 100 back in 1:04.58. But then in the 400 free final, Lee was in third place with 50 meters to go before exploding off the final wall to finish with the win in 4:19.37. She just barely held off Long Island’s Maggie Aroesty, who finished second in 4:19.44. Badger’s Nathalie Eid, who won the 800 free Friday night, took third in 4:20.08.
North Baltimore’s Billy Cadigan added a win in the men’s 400 IM after winning the 200 free Friday. He touched in 4:32.63, just ahead of Long Island’s Jason Louser (4:33.95) and Bluefish’s Harry Homans (4:34.16). In the men’s 100 back, Delaware’s Jake Johnson won the 100 back in 58.28, adding to his 100 fly victory from Friday, and Eastern Express’ Connor Doyle finished just behind in 58.57.
In the women’s 100 back, the Suburban Seahawks’ Alex Sumner put up a time of 1:03.06 to take the win after earlier in the meet winning the 200 IM. Long Island’s CJ Arena also won his second event of the meet, adding the 400 free title (4:08.66) to his 800 from Friday night.
Badger’s Carly Cummings won the women’s 400 IM in 4:50.86, pulling ahead on the breaststroke leg after Sumner had an early lead. North Baltimore’s Will Pelton won the men’s 50 free in 26.81.
Buoyed by Johnson’s quick butterfly leg, Delaware won the men’s 400 medley relay in 3:59.46. The Delaware women also picked up a relay win, holding off the Suburban Seahawks, 4:24.04 to 4:24.31.
