Torri Huske Downs 17-18 100 Fly NAG with 56.69; Jumps to #4 American All-time

2021 TAC TITANS LONG COURSE PREMIER MEET

In the final of the women’s 100 meter butterfly at the TAC Titans Premier Invitational, 18-year-old Torri Huske took a huge bite out of the 17-18 National Age Group Record in the same race that 16-year-old Claire Curzan lowered the 15-16 mark.

Swimming side-by-side in lanes 4 and 5, Curzan and Huske were both out in 26.21 and came to the wall in 56.20 and 56.69, respectively, to become the #2 and #4 American performers in the event in history.

Huske’s previous best time, which she swam in November at U.S. Open Richmond, was 57.36. At the time, she was .02 off Regan Smith’s 17-18 record of 57.34 from 2020 Pro Swim Series Des Moines. Huske’s first foray into sub-57 territory took a huge .65 bite out the previous mark.

Huske moved past Swedes Louise Hansson and Sarah Sjostrom to the #4 spot in the world for the current LCM season, behind only Zhang Yufei, Curzan, and Emma McKeon.
