Sanders Swims to Third Victory
Stanford’s Summer Sanders, one of the new kids on the block in American women’s swimming, became a triple winner in the U.S. Open Swimming meet Sunday at Indianapolis by placing first in the 200-meter butterfly.
Sanders, an 18-year-old freshman from Roseville, Calif., who had swept the medley races the past two days, won the butterfly in 2 minutes 12.33 seconds.
She set the only meet record in the three-day event at the Indiana University Natatorium with a 2:15.01 clocking in the 200 medley on Friday--the third fastest time in the world for the event.
Sanders was the meet’s top scorer with 99 points, having placed third in the 100 butterfly and sixth in the 100 breaststroke.
