Indiana postgrad Zane Grothe, the American Record holder in the short course 500 free, will compete in this morning’s 400 free prelims.
After swimming a best time in the 100 free (48.80) this morning on the back end of his double, Texas postgrad Jack Conger will focus exclusively on the 100 fly tonight. Conger was within a few tenths of teammate Joseph Schooling’s Pool Record in this morning’s prelims.
Conger is now the 5th fastest American ever in this event. With his time tonight, he moves one spot ahead of Olympian Tom Shields.
Zane Grothe, Andrew Wilson, and Jack Conger took a scoring win apiece to give SandenoSquad the edge in tonight’s Atlanta Pro Swim competition.
Sarah Sjostrom is set to make her 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series debut in Atlanta this morning, swimming her signature 100 fly. She’ll take on American star Kelsi Worrell.

Guess which sports head coach David Durden and his swimmers Tom Shields, Jacob Pebley, Josh Prenot, and Ryan Murphy would choose if they were winter athletes?
Today’s top-flight prelims scratches mostly tell us things we already know, as Tom Shields is out for health concerns; Mallory Comerford and Leah Smith are both home training; and Pace Clark, Elise Haan, and Quah Zheng Wen all are holding to yesterday’s scratches.
Shields is recovering from a tonsillectomy and deviated septum surgery.
Olympic champion Ryan Murphy is one of several stars competing tonight. Murphy is the top seed in the 200 back.
USA Swimming tweeted out the four starting SwimSquad rosters during this morning’s prelims sessions, with a couple of key changes from our predictions earlier this week. That includes #4 overall pick Leah Smith not starting for Team Sandeno.
Team Natalie Coughlin has some tough choices to make before Austin, including whether to start #7 overall pick Melanie Margalis as an IMer, breaststroker or in the flex spot.
