Christian swimmings for Lake Travis High School and Longhorn Aquatics. She recently vied at the Texas UIL 6A State Swimming and Diving Championships where she placed fourth in the 100 back with 55.25, precisely off her lifetime best from TXLA’s Jingle Bell Splash in December. She too swam on all three communicates, leading off the 10 th-place 200 potpourrus relay( 26.08 backstroke) and second-place 200 free communicate( 24.15 ), and swimming a leg( 51.74) on the runner-up 400 free relay.

A Winter Juniors or faster qualifier in the 100/200 back and 200/400 IM, Christian participated at 2021 Winter Juniors-West in the 50 free, 200 back, and 200 IM. She placed ninth in the back( 1:56.31) and 16 th in the IM( 2:01.24) and left the meet with PBs in all three events.

Most of her other SCY lifetime bests come from the Jingle Bell Splash in December and the New Year’s Classic in January. Those include 100/200/ 500 free, 100 back, 100 breast, 200 fly, and 400 IM.

Alabama’s Rhyan White triumphed both backstroke contests( 50.18/ 1:50.22 ). Christian’s best 200 back duration would have been on the cusp of the B/ C finals; it made 53.67 to make it back in the 100 back. Her IM eras are very close to what it took to score at SECs this year: it took 1:59.48/ 4:18.02 to get second swims.
