The final event of the morning was the men’s 50 fly. The two big names in the field ended up tying for the top seed with Michael Andrew and Caeleb Dressel swimming a 23.33 to share the top spot. Both swimmers have a chance to clinch a spot on the 2019 World Championship team that will travel next summer to Gwangju, South Korea. The winner of the 50 stroke events automatically qualifies for the 2019 World Championships.

Andrew and Dressel are seeded ahead of Tucson Ford’s Chatham Dobbs (23.73) and Texas’ John Shebat (23.86). Giles Smith (23.88), Jack Saunderson (23.89), Matthew Josa (23.90) and Tate Jackson (23.95) will also swim in the top eight tonight.
