Augusta Lewis Finishes 7th in 200 Fly, Earns All-America Honors Again

GREENSBORO, N.C. - A day after winning the national title in the 400 IM, Augusta Lewis made it onto the All-America podium for the sixth straight time (in her fourth different event), taking seventh place in the 200-yard butterfly on Friday at the Greensboro Aquatics Center.

A year ago, Lewis finished second, third and fourth in her three races, a runner-up in the 400 IM, a third-place finish in the 200 IM, and fourth in the 200-yard breaststroke. This year, she began the nationals on Wednesday with a fifth-place finish in the 200 IM, and then came through with a big swim on Friday to win the 400 IM after placing seventh in prelims. 

Instead of swimming the 200-yard breaststroke again this year, she opted for the 200-yard butterfly as her third event, and added All-America distinction yet again. She qualified for the finals with a 2:02.82 in prelims and trimmed .15 off that time in the evening session with a 2:02.67 to take seventh. 

Emma Ng Pack earned honorable mention All-America for the Athenas in the one-meter dive, ending in 12th place with a 386.55. Jameson Mitchum also captured honorable mention All-America honors on Friday in the 100-yard backstroke, finishing in 14th place with a 56.24. She still has her strongest event tomorrow when she will try to repeat as All-American in the 200-yard backstroke. 

Honorable mention All-America honors also went to the 800-yard freestyle relay team of Sun Young Byun, Katy Shaw, Lewis and Ella Blake, which came in 15th place with a 7:36.61. 

As a result of several scoring events on Saturday, CMS stands in 14th place in the team standings heading into the final day. In addition to Mitchum's 200-yard backstroke tomorrow, the Athenas will also have Kelly Prawira in the 200-yard breaststroke, which she qualified for as a top-20 finisher during the regular season. The 400-yard freestyle relay team will then cap off the meet.
