She and Michigan’s Siobhan Haughey went head-to-head, flipping just a hundredth apart (22.93 to 22.94) at the 100. Comerford had the back half speed to get it done, though, touching in 47.00 to Haughey’s 47.22.
While she typically swims the freestyle leg, Comerford took over the fly leg of the 400 medley relay this time, posting a 50.73 to give the Cardinals a huge lead.
Haughey’s 55.24 in the 100 IM tops Kathleen Baker’s 56.52 from the Queen of the Pool meet by over a second.
All-American Siobhan Haughey had an impressive showing to start the season. She won both the 200 free (1:45.7) and 100 free (48.5) by nearly 5 seconds.
Siobhan Haughey will be one of Michigan’s biggest scoring threats this season, with the potential to become a triple A finalist at NCAAs.

After setting the American Record this morning, Stanford is the favorite to win the 200 free relay, but Cal was just 5 tenths back without star sprinter Abbey Weitzeil and freshman sprint standout Maddie Murphy, who will both likely be on the finals relay.
Weitzeil was a part of Cal’s 800 free relay at Pac-12s, but they swapped her out for Kristen Vredeveld at NCAAs. This could be because she’s more valuable on the other relays, but it’s noteworthy because of her health issues following the 200 free at Pac-12s.
