After tying for top seed this morning, Tim Phillips and Michael Andrew were just 5 hundredths apart tonight. Both were slightly faster than their prelims swims. Andrew was out with the early lead in 24.49 to Phillips’ 24.65, but Phillips was a nail faster on the back half to win it in 52.88. Pace Clark, a 2017 U.S. World Championships team member, dropped nearly a second from his prelims time to move from 8th to 3rd. Clark held off Kaan Ayar (53.63) by a nail into the finish.
