2017 INDIANA SWIMMING LSC SENIOR CHAMPS
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.
