While the three middle lanes looked more as if they were doing synchronized swimming than racing butterfly, in the end experience won out as 2012 Olympic champion Dana Vollmer of California Aquatics accelerated over the last 20 meters for the victory. Vollmer touched in 57.95, with Claire Donahue of South Florida (58.37) and Kendyl Stewart(58.45) just behind. Vollmer’s time ranks third in the world so far this season.
