Just 15, Elizabeth Pelton of the North Baltimore Aquatic Club scored a world championship team spot with her surprising second-place finish in a stacked 200 individual medley field as NBAC’s Katie Hoff–who was once that 15-year-old sensation–didn’t make the team in the 400 free, an event in which she holds the American record.
