Powers Set To Compete At YMCA Nationals

Jordan Powers will be competing at the YMCA Nationals in Greensboro, N.C., from April 3-6 after delivering a national qualifying time of 22.22 – a personal best – during the Senior Boys (15-18) Division 50 freestyle event of the YMCA Pennsylvania State Championships at Penn State University this past weekend.

Powers, who earlier this month competed at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association state swimming championships at Webster-Schroeder High School, also placed 10th in the 100 freestyle when he hit the wall in 48.85, also a personal best.

Powers has posted eight new Jamestown Jets swimming records this season.

While Powers was the lone Jet to reach the nationals, a number of other teammates had similarly strong showings during the State Championships.

Prep Girls (11-12) competitor Allie Stockwell was ninth in the 100 backstroke behind a personal-best time of 1:07.33 while Megan Seeley, also in the Prep Girls division, was 13th in the 200 freestyle with a personal-best time of 2:09.06.

Brennan Roehmholdt of the Cadet Boys division (10 and under) was 22nd in the 50 backstroke when he finished in 37.78.
