Regan Smith started off the last morning of the 2019 TYR Pro Swim Series with the only sub-1:00 seed for the women’s 100 back, as she surged to a 59.46 finish to beat Isabelle Stadden’s mark of 1:00.61. Tonight, she decided she had more left in the tank, clocking in at 58.82, despite Stadden’s improvement to 1:00.26.

Lisa Bratton came up from behind, posting a 1:00.88 to seize third and out-touching Kylee Alons (1:00.96). Asia Seidt broke into the top five with a time of 1:01.81, just ahead of Kennedy Goss (1:01.81). Bridgette Alexander and Maggie Wanezek battled to the finish with times of 1:02.28 and 1:02.64, respectively.

Smith also lowered her own world junior record that stood at 58.83 from last summer’s US Nationals.
