The penultimate night of finals of the 2019 Speedo Junior Nationals will feature six events with the 200 free, 200 breast and 100 back taking place on Friday night in Palo Alto, California. This meet is showcasing some of the best young talent in the United States, although a lot of the best 18 and under swimmers have stayed home to prepare for the World Junior Championships at the end of the month.

Heat sheets are available below.

Although a lot of the swimmers aren’t going to World Juniors, a lot of champions from the 2018 Juniors ended up making the World Juniors a year later including Erin GemmellJake Magahey and Anna Keating so this meet could be a stepping stone for future talent.

Finals will start at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
