UVA’s Morgan Hill Talks 50 Free Win, First Time(s) Under 22 (Video)

2019 ACC WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIPS

Reported by Robert Gibbs.

50 FREE FINAL

  1. Morgan Hill (Virginia) – 21.68
  2. Ky-Lee Perry (NC State) – 21.69
  3. Kylee Alons (NC State) – 21.81

It was something of an upset here, as NC State’s Ky-Lee Perry looked to be the favorite after putting up a 21.59 this morning, the fastest time by 0.31s. But tonight, Perry couldn’t quite match that time, and UVA’s Morgan Hill dropped a quarter second off her prelims time of 21.93 (also her previous personal best time), touching just ahead of Perry, 21.68 to 21.69.

While that may have been a small blow to NC State, the Wolfpack still big points in this event: freshman Kylee Alons finished 3rd in 21.81, and sophomore Sirena Rowe took 7th in 22.20.
