Katie Drabot dropped a season-best time Sunday morning in the prelims of the women’s 200 fly in Santa Clara, clocking 2:08.15 to qualify first by over three seconds.
That swim stands up as her third-fastest ever, only trailing two 2:07s from the 2018 Summer Nationals, and elevates her from 16th (2:08.57 in Bloomington) up to 12th in the world this year.
In her other two events here, the 100 free and 100 fly, Drabot only swam the prelims, so we’ll have to wait and see if she’ll contest the final tonight.
Cassidy Bayer qualified second in a time of 2:11.60, and Ella Eastin was notably fifth in 2:13.53.
After dropping the top time in the world last night in the 400 free, Katie Ledecky followed up with another strong swim in the prelims of the 200, taking the top spot in 1:56.65. She currently ranks second in the world this year with a season-best of 1:55.32.
Katie McLaughlin registered her second-fastest swim ever to take second in 1:57.22.
Ledecky also competed in the 200 IM, posting the third-fastest time in 2:14.53 behind Allie Raab (2:13.83) and Alicia Wilson (2:13.94). Raab’s swim was a new best time by over a second, while Ledecky was just off her best of 2:14.36 from 2016.
- Jack Levant made a return to action on Sunday after pulling out of NCAAs back in March due to medical complications, qualifying second for the final in both the men’s 200 fly (2:05.05) and 200 free (1:54.33). Alex Liang (2:02.28) and Colby Mefford (1:53.96) hold the top spots.
- In addition to the 200 IM, Raab put together a season-best to qualify first in the women’s 100 breast in 1:09.06, leading Zoe Bartel (1:10.73).
- Carl Poppe put up the top time in the men’s 100 breast in 1:02.48, just off his PB of 1:02.30.
- Abrahm DeVine cruised to the top seed in the men’s 200 IM in a time of 2:01.14.
- Keaton Blovad topped the women’s 50 back in 28.77, and Christopher Staka achieved a new best in the men’s event in 25.06.
