Madelyn Moore has dominated the 15-17 girls age group regionally in the 50 metre freestyle event. This is evidenced by her winning both the CARIFTA and CISC titles for the 2016-2017 season. In Hawaii she finished 18th in time of 27.08. Earlier in the meet she was 24th in the 200 metre backstroke in a time of 2:37.58 (split time 1:14.01). Madelyn had the following thoughts about the competition

“Junior Pan Pacs has been a great experience .I have been racing a lot faster swimmers but it has been fun”
