Easily taking the top time in the women’s 50 free this morning on Day 2 of the SEC Championships was Tennessee junior Erika Brown. She clocked a time of 21.33, setting a new meet record and going over three tenths quicker than anyone else.
Brown’s time cleared the old meet record by just a hundredth, erasing the 21.34 meet record set in 2011 by former Auburn swimmer Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace. She also broke the pool record, a 21.54 done by former Georgia Bulldog Olivia Smoliga in 2014, and moves up to #7 all-time in this event. Her old best time of 21.39 from this meet last year ranked her #8 all-time and she jumps ahead of Vanderpool-Wallace.
