Kelsi Worrell: “Nothing was easy about that” (Video)

Reported by Chelsea Howard.


Coming off of a fifth place finish in the 100 freestyle just an hour or so earlier, Kelsi Worrell swam to her first individual win at Mesa in the 100 Fly. Worrell won finals with a 58.60 adding just 0.18 from this morning, but it was enough to fend off Louise Hansson who finished in a 58.80. Hansson also pulled off double events as she finished sixth in the 100 freestyle.

The top five swimmers were all under a minute with Kendyl Stewart in third (59.52), Amanda Kendall in fourth (59.60) and Lauren Case in fifth (59.80).

Mallory Comerford was another who swam doubles with the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly. While she finished second in the 100 freestyle, she tied for sixth in the 100 butterfly with Aliena Schmidtke in a time of 1:00.18.

  1. Worrell, 58.60
