Louisville’s Kelsi Worrell popped her pool record from prelims with a sub-58 time in the women’s 100-meter fly at the 2015 Arena Pro Swim Series Minneapolis.

Worrell clinched the title with a time of 57.91, breaking her preliminary record of 58.03.  That swim, in turn, downed the long-standing pool record of 58.15 set by Jenny Thompson way back in 1999.

Worrell’s time fell just half-a-second shy of her third-ranked 57.24 from the Pan American Games this summer.  Only Sarah Sjostrom (55.64) and Jeanette Ottesen (57.04) have been faster this year.

California’s Dana Vollmer, the former world record holder in this event prior to taking a sabbatical to have a child, proved she’s back in shape with a scorching 58.07 to move to 19th in the world.

California’s Noemie Thomas hit the wall third in a time of 58.23 with Trojan’s Kendyl Stewart earning fourth in 58.44.

SESI’s Daynara De Paula (58.84), Mason Makos’ Amanda Kendall (58.93), SoFlo’s Claire Donahue (59.14) and California’s Farida Osman (59.14) also put up times in the A final.

Schroeder Y’s Hannah Saiz took the B final in 59.61 with California’s Katie McLaughlin joining her under 1:00 with a 59.88.
