Rising Minnesota sophomore Tevyn Waddell had a great swim tonight in the 100 back, posting a 1:00.96 for a huge personal best. Waddell went a PR 1:02.11 at Worlds Trials a few weeks ago, a meet where she had a bunch of great performances, but it looks like she is continuing to roll this summer. She was 1:01.88 this morning for a PR, and took nearly a second off of that tonight. Jessica Unicomb was 2nd in 1:01.56– Unicomb broke Beata Nelson’s meet record with her morning 1:01.55, but tonight Waddell took it for herself.
For the men, Neil Wachtler of the Kansas City Blazers won a tight race with Badger Aquatics’ Justin Temprano in the 100 back. Wachtler, who swims collegiately for Denver, took the win at 56.44, over Temprano’s 56.58.
NASA’s Ella Tierney, a Texas Longhorn commit, dominated the women’s 200 free to kick off tonight’s finals session. She took over a second and a half off of her prelims swim to put up a 2:01.86, her first time under 2:02 and .24 drop from her old PR of 2:02.10. Wisconsin Aquatics’ Jessica Unicomb, who was 2:03.29 for the top prelims time, scratched the final.
Wisconsin Aquatics’ Joseph Milinovich got the job done in the men’s 400 IM (4:25.58), his time marking a lifetime best. Also getting a PR was Missouri State’s Phillip Willett, getting under 4:30 for the first time to take second at 4:29.01. Willett’s Missouri State teammate Josie Pearson dropped three quarters of a second for the win on the women’s side, going 4:53.85.
In the men’s 200 free, it was a 1-2 finish for Wisconsin Aquatics. Anthony Lyons dominated for the win at 1:50.98, with Griffin Back second at 1:52.62. Today, Back has improved about a second and a half from his seed time.
Minnesota took the women’s 400 free relay with three 56’s from their first three legs. Zoe Avestruz was out with a 56.70 to lead off, followed by Waddell (56.85) and Kaia Grobe (56.70) as Isabel Whited anchored in 57.96. Hawkeye Swim Club won the men’s 400 free relay in 3:26.19 to edge out Wyoming Aquatics (3:26.43).
