She then tied the 200 fly record set in 1982 by Margaret Tretbar also from Wichita with a 2:01.80. In her final event of the evening, she went a solid 1:51.62. The men were lead again by 17 year-old JJ Helms from Conroe Area Team Swimmers from Conroe, TX. He won the 50 free with a 21.80, then went 1:53.98 in the 200 fly. He finished the night just missing the pool record in the 200 free with a time 1:40.97.
