16-year-old Charlotte Hook swam a personal best on Sunday night at the TAC Titans Invite with the Marlins of Raleigh as she swam a 1:53.49 in the 200 butterfly, dropping from her 1:53.70 last year. Hook now ranks third all-time in the 15-16 age group with her swim, bumping herself up from fifth past teammate Claire Curzan.

Curzan was also in action on Sunday night, merely 24 hours after breaking the 50 second barrier in the 100 butterfly, with a 47.76 in the 100 freestyle. Curzan was slightly slower than her 47.23 she swam earlier this summer.

Charlotte Hook is one of the top recruits in the class of 2022 as she will start her junior year with the TAC Titans in Raleigh, North Carolina. Curzan is also one of the top recruits in the class of 2022 as they enter the world of COVID recruiting in their penultimate years of high school.

Other top swims on the night came from Braeden Haughey in the 200 backstroke (1:45.78) and Jorge Murillo in the 200 breaststroke (1:57.80) as the TAC Titans won every single event over the Marlins of Raleigh except for the boys 200 butterfly, which was won by Ryan Silver (1:49.32).

Brooke Zettel took a win in the 200 backstroke (1:59.09) as the only breaker of the 2:00 barrier, and Mitchell Stroud won the 100 freestyle (45.33).

17-year-old Lance Norris also had a solid time in the 1650 with a 15:05.89 along with 2021 Olympian Ashley Twichell (15:47.96).
