Amanda Kendall Swims Her Fastest 100 Free Since 2011


A second night saw a second meet record for one of the newest members of the Indiana post-grad group, Ashley Neidigh. After breaking the Meet Record in the 800 free by 3 seconds on Thursday, she swam a 4:47.49 in the 400 IM, which broke the old Meet Record set in 2015 at 4:48.40. That was just a few-tenths short of her best time done at Worlds Trials a few weeks ago.

Her fellow Indiana post-grad Amanda Kendall won the 100 free in 55.40 after a 55.14 in prelims. That prelims swim is the best time of her career outside of the 2011 Pan American Games (54.75, 54.82) where she won gold.

Other Day 2 Winners:

  • Purdue’s Hudson Bursch won the men’s 400 IM in 4:30.72 – his new best time. He hadn’t gone a LCM best time in this event since 2015.
  • Tabahn Afrik won the men’s 100 free in 50.23, ahead of Carmel 17-year old Drew Kibler (50.65).

Wasn’t Amanda just at Canyons?

Yes. But her coach (Coley Stickels) just made the move to Indiana and she went with him.
