Armstrong, representing Canton City Schools, won the event in 54.97 (26.41/28.56). Andrew set the previous meet record in 2015 in 54.99.
Heading into August, Armstrong’s lifetime best in the 100 back was 56.40, from late July. At the 2019 U.S. National Championships just last week, he dropped over a second, going 55.33. He was 55.14 in his first swim Friday.
Armstrong, a West Virginia commit who won the 100 free earlier in the meet, was also slated out of prelims Friday to swim in C-final of the 200 free but scratched out to focus as the top seed in the 100 back. He was seeded 82nd heading into the meet in the 200 with a 1:55.62 and dropped 2.36 seconds.
