Starlit Aquatic Club swimmer Jenny Rapp continued to dominate the women's competition in the Olympian Invitational by placing first in three of four events in last night's second session at the Starlit Aquatic Club.
Rapp won the 200-meter butterfly, the 200-meter freestyle and the 400-meter individual medley and remained in first place with an individual score of 52 points.
Today's final session will feature the preliminaries at 9:30 a.m., the age-group competition at 1:20 p.m. and the finals and consolations at 7.
"I really didn't know how well I was going to do," Rapp said. "I didn't really expect to do this well. I wasn't looking forward to today because I had so many long events to swim in, but then I thought, 'So does everybody else.'"
Starlit Coach Holger Dietze said Rapp's performance was not totally unexpected.
"We've always been strong in the 100-meter breaststroke, 200-meter fly and 400-meter individual medley and Jenney Rapp is swimming just excellently."
In the men's competition, David Alleva of Starlit maintained a slim lead over second-place Charles Orth of the Foxcatcher swimming team from Pennsylvania. Alleva has 39 points, Orth 35.
Alleva finished first in the men's 200-meter butterfly and second in the 200-meter freestyle and the 400-meter individual medley.
