The Toyota U.S. Open meet at the Greensboro Aquatic Center featured record-setting times by some of North Carolina’s top swimmers. Because of the COVID-19 situation, the U.S. Open was held in multiple locations around the country and times compared to rank swimmers by order of finish. Click here for a complete list of combined results.
Elite club swimmers, along with college and professional swimmers, competed in the meets. NCS club swimmers set several NCS long course records over the course of the three-day timed final meet.
Claire Curzan (TAC Titans) set a new 15-16 women’s national age group record in the 100 fly with a time of 51.61. Her time was the fastest time recorded in any of the meet locations! Her times in the 50 free and 100 free also set new NCS records. The 100 free time was also a 15-18 NCS record and her 100 fly time was both a new 15-18 NCS record and an NCS Open record.
Braeden Haughey (TAC Titans) and Sam Hoover (NCAC) also set new NCS long course records at the U.S. Open. Haughey set his 15-16 men’s record in the 200 back while Hoover broke the 15-18 men’s 100 free record, dipping below 50 seconds with a time of 49.71.
Sam Marsteiner (WAVE) also added four NCS 11-12 records at an October long course meet held at the Triangle Aquatic Center. Marsteiner set new records in the 200 free, the 800 free, the 1500 free, and the 200 back!
