Fordham sophomore Amelia Bullock, competing for Fairport Area Swimming, took part in the U.S. Open Championship from August 2-6, which featured former Olympians, as well as swimmers from the ACC, SEC, BIG TEN, PAC 12, and BIG 12.
Bullock was entered in the 100 breaststroke and 100 butterfly LCM (long course meters) events, and posted a time trial time of 1:17.72 in the 100 breaststroke LCM, while placing 61st overall in the 100 butterfly LCM in 1:03.85.
One week later, Bullock was back at it at the Speedo Junior Nationals, this time competing in the 100 and 200 butterfly LCM, as well as the 200 IM LCM.  After posting a time of 2:28.78 in the 200 IM LCM, she improved her time in the 100 butterfly LCM, placing 42nd in 1:02.62, while taking 57th in the 200 butterfly LCM in 2:26.78.
