Tonight’s TYR Derby Pro meet will feature eight women and eight men racing shoot-out style.


Eight women and eight men will square off in a 50 free long course. The field will get smaller through three rounds until a winner is crowned. Here’s a full breakdown of the rounds:

  1. PRELIMS – eight men and eight women will race a 50 free, with the slowest two getting eliminated.
  2. SEMIFINALS – six men and six women will race a 50 free, with the slowest two getting eliminated.
  3. FINALS – four men and four women will race a 50 free for the TYR Derby titles on the men’s and women’s sides

  1. Margo Geer – 25.20
  2. Madison Kennedy – 25.38
  3. Amy Bilquist – 25.51
  4. Mallory Comerford – 25.52

Geer was the most consistent racer, winning all three rounds. She was 25.20 in the final, as all four women had their slowest swims in the final. Geer bags the $4,000 grand prize.

Kennedy only gained two hundredths from her semi swim, though, and she snuck ahead of Bilquist and Comerford for 2nd. Kennedy takes home $3,000, Bilquist $2,000 in her first meet post-college, and Comerford takes $1,000.



  1. Bruno Fratus – 22.16
  2. Michael Chadwick – 22.41
  3. Ali Khalafalla – 22.49
  4. Shinri Shioura – 22.52
  5. Ryan Held – 22.55

Fratus, like Geer, was consistent through the three rounds. He won the grand prize of $4,000 with a time of 22.16 in the final.

Michael Chadwick was 22.41 to take 2nd, with Khalafalla (22.49), Shioura (22.52), and Held (22.55) bunched up. Held, unfortunately, won’t win any prize money.
