Curry cruised through prelims by posting a 1:51.16 before putting up a dominating time of 1:48.75 in finals.

Curry also posted a best time of 55.11 in the 100 butterfly prelims before scratching the event during finals. This marked a 1.6 second drop for Curry, bringing her under 56 seconds for the first time. 

Although she did not drop in the 50 freestyle, Curry managed to match her best time, winning the event in a time of 23.15. 

Emory University swimmer Nicholas Goudie also had a big showing in the 50 freestyle. After winning the individual event in a best time of 20.03, Goudie led-off Dynamo’s 200 freestyle relay in a split of 19.90 to get under the :20 second mark for the first time. 

Goudie hit another best time leading-off Dynamo’s 400 medley relay, where he split a 49.48 on the backstroke leg. This marked his first time under 50-seconds, cutting over 2 seconds off of his best.

should of mentioned some of the younger swimmers: 13-14 year olds had some great swims, many breaking barriers in events such as the 1 back, 2 free, 5 free, and 2 back!!

No mention of Raunak Khosla breaking Phelps’ 200 IM pool record from 2003? Or UGA commit Arie Voloschin’s 53 100 breast, breaking a 25 year old pool record?
