Louise Hansson Breaks Pac-12 Championship Record in 100 Yard Fly


USC junior Louise Hansson is well-on-her-way to a 3rd-straight Pac-12 Championship in the 100 fly after a 49.90 in prelims. That makes her the first swimmer to go sub-50 in the history of this meet, breaking her own 50.17 from last year’s meet.

The time ties as the 11th-fastest performance in history, matching the 49.90 that she swam at NCAAs last year. The Pac-12 record remains her matching 49.80s from the mid-season Texas Hall of Fame Invite in Austin in November and last year’s NCAA finals. That’s the same Austin pool that will host this year’s NCAA Championship meet.

If Hansson can go sub-50 seconds again in finals, she’ll tie Kelsi Dahlia for the most sub-50 swims in history (5).

  1. Kelsi Dahlia, 2016 NCAAs – 49.43

Funny that both Hansson and Brown tied one of their times from NC’s last year at their conference meet this year
