Veronica Medon finished off her weekend in style with great swims in both the 50 fly and the 200 back.  Caitlin Quon led the way in the 200 breaststroke. and Allison Maxwell led the way in the 200 fly. Both Kelsey Richels and Cassie Walth had good performances in the 100 freestyle. 

"Overall just a really solid weekend of swimming. We still have a lot of work to do but again a nice time to see where we are at this point and begin to look at where focus needs to go moving forward."

Medon's impressive weekend concluded with a third place in the 200 backstroke (58.94) and a fourth place showing in the 50 butterfly (25.74).  Erin Grabanski took time off her preliminary showing and finished seventh in the 50 backstroke (27.93).
