2017 ARENA PRO SWIM SERIES – SANTA CLARA

The 2017 Arena Pro Swim Series is shaping up to be the closest finish we’ve had in years for the overall men’s point title, with Chase Kalisz and Josh Prenot holding dead even in their tie atop the men’s standings.

Both men went with lighter event loads in Santa Clara, winning one event apiece for 5 total points each. That leaves them tied at 43 for the series lead with just one stop remaining: U.S. Nationals, which will count for double points.

With Nationals less than a month away, a number of top tour swimmers went with sparser event entries – that also included Katie Ledeckywho also won just one scoring event. (Ledecky also won the 1500 free, but non-Olympic events don’t count for series points). She now sits a single point behind Melanie Margalis for the women’s series lead.

TOP SANTA CLARA POINT-GETTERS

Jay Litherland exploded in Santa Clara, winning three races and taking second in another to lead all swimmers with 18 points. That included a brutal 400 IM/200 free double on day 2 in which Litherland won both events.

For the women, Madisyn Cox had a big weekend, winning three races to lead all female swimmers by 5 points.
