Butterflyers Jack Conger and Katie McLaughlin locked in trips to the 2019 World Championships as a part of Team USA, the result of day 3 of the Pan Pacific Championships.
Neither bettered their times from U.S. Nationals, but neither had to. Conger took silver behind Caeleb Dressel, and McLaughlin won the B final while second American Mallory Comerford failed to beat her time from Nationals.
There were no changes to the Worlds, World University Games or Pan Ams rosters tonight, with the frontrunners all holding their positions, though only four of the twelve improved their finals times from Nationals. Grant Shoults is officially in as the second 400 freestyler, Abrahm Devine as the second 200 IMer and Melanie Margalis also the second 200 IMer on the women’s side.

Full projected 2019 Rosters
As we did during Nationals, we’ll continue tracking projected rosters. Be aware that we’re updating these rosters as the meet progresses, so nothing here is official or finalized until the end of the meet. The italicized names are in line for spots based on Nationals results. As athletes lock in their roster spots, we’ll remove the italics from their names and events. Events in (parentheses) remain unofficial, pending Pan Pacs results.

The Worlds teams are coming together, with just four events each for men and women to be finalized tomorrow:
