Margo Geer added just a few one hundredths to her opening round swim to take over top spot in round two, putting up a time of 25.01. Kennedy added nearly four tenths to her initial swim, but still got through easily in 2nd with a 25.24. Lia Neal (25.32) and Farida Osman (25.39) rounded out the four finalists.
