WOMEN’S 100 Butterfly
Canada’s Audrey Lacroix held onto her top seed, rushing into a 100 fly title with a 59.62. Lacroix was extremely patient with her swim. One lane over, SwimMAC’s sprint freestyle power Ariana Vanderpool-Wallace raced out to a lead of more than one second at the 50 mark, and Lacroix actually sat third at that point.
But the Canadian roared back in 30.87, the fastest second-half split by more than a second, and finished with more than a second’s lead on Vanderpool-Wallace. The Bahamian Olympian was 1:00.71 for second place.
Britain’s Lauren Quigley put up a 1:00.89 to take the final prize money-earning position. Following her was 15-year-old Courtney Harnish, swimming in her second A final of the night. Harnish went 1:01.54, beating Canadian 16-year-old Emma Ball (1:01.62).
Another 16-year-old, Kelsey Drake, was sixth in 1:02.27 with Great Britain’s 15-year-old Amelia Clynes behind her (1:02.48). Closing out the field was Club Seminole veteran Svetlana Khaklova in 1:02.85.
