USC junior Louise Hansson swam the fastest time ever in the 100 fly on Friday night at the 2019 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Austin, Texas. Hansson broke her own NCAA and US Open Record with a 49.26, lowering her 49.34 she set at Pac-12’s earlier in the meet.

Hansson won the stacked final that included the first, third and fourth fastest performers all-time in the event. Michigan freshman Maggie MacNeil (49.66) was slightly off her best time of 49.59 as she finished second in the final.

Cal senior Katie McLaughlin had a huge swim for the Golden Bears as she moved up to third in the final with a 49.97, breaking 50 seconds for the first time. McLaughlin moved up to fifth all-time in the event with that swim, picking up big points for Cal. Freshman Izzy Ivey (50.82) also swam in the final for sixth place.

Tennessee’s Erika Brown (50.38), Auburn’s Aly Tetzloff (50.61), Virginia’s Morgan Hill (50.84) and Louisville’s Grace Oglesby (51.10) also swam in the A-Final.

Hansson successfully defended her NCAA title in the event as USC now has two wins in the event all-time, both from Hansson. She joins Louisville’s Kelsi Worrell, Georgia’s Mary Descenza, Cal’s Natalie Coughlin, Stanford’s Misty Hyman, Stanford’s Jenny Thompson and Arizona’s Chrissy Ahmann-Leighton as repeat winners in the event.
