Myers Tops Tight 100 Fly Field on Day 2 of Nashville Futures

2017 FUTURES — NASHVILLE

The 2017 Futures Championshps in Nashville, Tennessee continued today with the 200 free, 100 breast, 100 fly, and 400 IM. Gator Swim Club’s Julian Hill had one of the highlight performances of the evening, as he dropped a chunk of time to win the 200 free. Hill established the early lead with a 55.08 at the 100 and never relinquished his lead. He dropped over a second with his winning time of 1:53.09.

Sarasota’s Brett Riley broke 4:30 for the first time in his career to come out on top in the 400 IM. Riley, who came into the meet with a lifetime best of 4:31.61, knocked 2 seconds off his time tonight. He trailed Tampa Bay’s Joseph Licht (4:32.69) at the halfway mark, but made a huge move on the breaststroke leg to pull ahead. Riley extended his lead on the freestyle leg, touching in 4:29.62 for gold.

On the women’s side, a close battle in the 100 fly saw the top 4 finish within half a second of each other. Pine Crest’s Alexandra Meszaros was the only woman to split sub-29 at the halfway point, establishing the early lead with a 28.97 at the turn. She wasn’t able to hold off the late charge, however, as Highlander’s Andie Myers used her closing speed to win it in 1:02.25 and East Coast Aquatic Club’s Madison Cummings (1:02.45) chased her down for silver. Meszaros was able to hold on for 3rd in 1:02.53, followed by Cummings’ teammate Eriana Temperino (1:02.76).
