Several current and former Cardinal swimmers were in action this weekend in the Toyota US Open Swimming Championship including Mallory Comerford, Gabi Albiero, and Morgen Friesen.
This is an odd event this year, as it was changed, as have some many sports events this year, to accommodate Covid-19. In this case, the event was altered to be a multi-location event, with swimmers competing in nine different sites around the country and the ultimate results being aggregated across all sites based on times.
This means that, while Comerford touched the wall first in her location with a 55.21 in the 100M Freestyle, ultimately she ended up in 4th place in the competition behind a 54.04 finish by Victoria Huske that was swam, I believe, in Richmond, VA.
Several other Cardinals had good finishes in that race. Casey Fanz touched the wall 2nd in Indiana, for a 10th overall, Christiana Regenauer and Gabi Albiero touch 6th and 7th, for final standings of 26th and 27th.
In other races, Alena Kraus touched 2nd in the 200M Butterfly for a 8th overall, followed by Tristen Ulett 4th for an overall 14th, and Albiero 6th for an overall 23rd. Morgan Friesen touched 6th in the 200M Breaststroke for 26th overall.
