Kylie Masse, one of the best backstrokers in the world, muscled out a strong 200 back swim on Saturday night at the 2018 US Winter Nationals in Greensboro. Masse, who represents Canada internationally, made a strong impression this weekend as this was her second win of the meet this weekend.

Masse swam a 2:09.92 to win the 200 back final. She tied up the last 15 meters and held off a hard charging Hali Flickinger (2:10.77). Flickinger ran down Ali Galyer (2:11.02) and Phoebe Bacon (2:11.13) to steal second place. She will also have the 200 fly later on in this session.

Mabel Zavaros (2:12.25) and Bridgette Alexander (2:12.58) also competed hard in placing fifth and sixth.

Kennedy Goss (2:14.10) and Sophie Lindner (2:15.35) finished seventh and eighth.
