Nine-year-old Julianna made finals in her first USS Swimming meet, the T2 Naples Open as she achieved a National Motivational “B” time in the 50-yard Freestyle (10th) with a time of 38.20. Julianna also swam the 100-yard Free (12th), 50-yard Backstroke (16th), 50-yard Breaststroke (17th) and 50-yard Butterfly (9th). Well done, Julianna!
