USC’s Louise Hansson swam a 49.94 in the 100 fly to win the title, while Stanford’s Brooke Forde turned in the top 400 IM time in the NCAA this season.

Cal’s Abbey Weitzeil declared false started the 200 free and did not compete in the session. Sources said she hyper-extended her arm on the finish of the 50 free earlier in the meet. The same thing happened to Weitzeil at the NCAA Championships last year.
