Reminiscent of last night’s 100 breast final, Lilly King reclaimed her spot at the top of the results sheet, dropping a 30.03 50 breast to post the fastest time in the world this year. Taking down the first seed, Annie Lazor (31.01), King made it look easy, crashing the pads nearly a second faster than the rest of the field. Olivia Calegan (31.31) turned in an impressive time of her own, gaining a decent advantage over Melissa Rodriguez (31.73). Bethany Galat was the fifth woman to go sub-32.00 with a 31.78. Emily Escobedo went 32.27 to beat Emily Weiss (32.53), while Kaylee Wheeler stayed with the pack to post a time of 32.67.
