Men’s 50 Free as reported by Braden Keith
Redshirted West Virginia swimmer Tim Squires had a good prelims swim to lead the group into finals, but in that final, the big names came out and took control of the show. Anthony Ervin used his near-perfect stroke to win in 22.43. The powerful Josh Schneider took 2nd in 22.81, and former Auburn swimmer Adam Brown was 3rd in 23.01.
Ryan Murphy was 7th in 23.95 and Tyler McGill was 8th in 24.12: both swims quite a bit slower than they were in prelims. Murphy’s teammate Caeleb Dressel won the C-Final in 23.76.
