After an upset this morning in prelims, Lilly King reclaimed her spot at the top of the results sheet with a stellar 1:05.68 100 breast, over two seconds faster than her swim this morning. Bumping Annie Lazor (1:06.03) to second, King was a mere second and a half off of her world record, which stirs excitement in the swim community about what is to come.

There was a three-way tie for third, as Bethany Galat, Emily Escobedo, and Madisyn Cox all clocked in at 1:07.59, slashing their seeds and beating King’s time from this morning. Allie Raab claimed sixth with a 1:09.51, edging out Melissa Rodriguez (1:09.57) and Noelle Peplowski (1:10.79) from the end lane. All eight woman were well under the 2020 Olympic Trials cut.
