Justin Lynch after his meet record in the 100 Fly at Juniors (video)

Garrett McCaffrey caught up with 16-year-old Justin Lynch of the Terrapins after his victory in the 100 Fly. They discuss his summer so far, his goals going into his fly races, and how he continues on his steep rate of improvement.

Full recap of the Men’s 100m Butterfly, as reported by Amanda Smith:
We saw the meet record go down twice in the morning session, both by Justin Lynch of the Terrapins Swim Team and Santo Condorelli from Bolles.

Only one of those swimmers was able to repeat that performance in finals, as it was Justin Lynch who was a 52.91 to re-break his own Meet Record, though that was still shy of his 52.75 National Age Group Record.

It was Caeleb Dressel who wound up 2nd in 53.31, four-tenths faster than his lifetime best, followed by his teammate Condorelli in 3rd in 53.32. Condorelli wound up with the second-fastest time overall on the day (remember that prelims, A, B, or C finals can be used for selections for Junior Worlds), but he is too old for selection. SwimMAC’s Matthew Josa still has the fastest time for selection, but Dressel now moves into third in the pecking-order for Dubai in this event (he’s already got a spot locked up in the 100 free on the team).
Senior Aaron Whitaker from Indiana took 3rd in this race in 54.48, followed by Gunnar Bentz (53.44), Andrew Seliskar (53.49), and William Glass (53.71). Kyle Gornay of the Redlands Swim Team won the B Final in 54.09.

14-year old Michael Andrew was a 54.99 in prelims, and wound up 13th overall in finals in 55.29.

Harty, with his first place swim, catapulted Greenwood Memorial from 0 points to 20, going from unranked to 32nd in one swim (currently there are 83 scoring teams on the men’s side).

Harty 56.05. Green 56.16. Pohlman sneaks in for third in 56.71. Stuart fourth in 56.75. Monster underwater coming off of the 50 for Harty – he was barely behind Stuart but came up half a body length past him off his turn.

1:01.94 for Vissering. New MR and 15-16 NAG record! Bentz was in dead last at the turn with the only 30 second split in the field but somehow managed to come back to second with a 32.28. 28.97 / 32.97 for Vissering. Congratulations! Still could be more records to fall with the men’s 100 back.
