Digest (June 12): Timonium's Meyers, Bel Air's Shattuck win in World Para Swimming World Series

Becca Meyers of Timonium won two events Sunday night at the World Para Swimming World Series in Indianapolis as the United States claimed 17 individual wins on the final day of competition. Meyers, who won the S13 100-meter freestyle in 1 minute, 3.53 seconds, was one of seven U.S. women who won their respective classes in the 100 freestyle. She secured her second victory of the night in the S13 100 butterfly. Tallying five wins over the weekend, Zachary Shattuck of Mount Airy capped off a standout performance with first-place finishes in the S6 100 freestyle and 50 butterfly. "This weekend was fun to see everyone and reconnect with people," Shattuck said. "It was good to get back in the pool after taking a little break. I had a best time in my 100-meter breast and that was kind of a shock, but it was a cool feeling to know where I'm at and knowing I can still swim that time. As I pick up my training, I have a lot of possibilities the next month and a half." The next and final stop of the World Para Swimming World Series tour will be July 6-9 in Berlin. The U.S. Paralympics Swimming World Championships Trials will take place July 21-23 in Colorado Springs, followed by the World Para Swimming World Championships set for Sept.30-Oct. 6 in Mexico City.
