IRVINE, California, August 1. TONIGHT’S winners at the USA Swimming junior nationals could be some familiar names that have already collected gold medals in Irvine, based on their seeds in the heat sheets.
Among the top seeds in tonight’s finals, Sierra Schmidt (800 free) and Townley Haas (100 free) are the only previous winners at the meet so far. Veronica Burchill won the women’s 200 fly B final and was third in the 100 free, so she’s looking for her first trip to the top step on the medal podium. Alex Valente will be looking for a 100 fly victory in his first championship final of the meet.
Finals begins at 6 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time!
