The 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series in Atlanta may be missing a few big amateur names that are competing at college championships and getting ready for the NCAA’s in a couple weeks. But that didn’t stop the pro swimmers in the United States or a select few international stars to make appearances at the 1996 Olympic pool.

Texas’ Jack Conger posted a 51.00 in the 100 fly final on Thursday night in Atlanta as that is a very quick time for early March. Conger was the only swimmer under 52 seconds as the Texas pro swimmers have indicated they are rested for this meet.

Queens swimmer Marius Kusch has got to be happy hearing about the Division II psych sheets being released today as he finished in second at 52.22 and Texas’ Tripp Cooper was third at 52.40.

Michael Andrew (52.57), Pace Clark (53.52), Josiah Binnema (53.60), Paul Le (54.00) and Tom Shields (54.58) also competed in the championship final.
