Olympians take ti­tles

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Olympic gold medal­ists Simone Manuel and Caeleb Dres­sel won 50-me­ter freestyle ti­tles on the fi­nal night of the U.S. Na­tional Cham­pi­onships at In­di­anapo­lis. Manuel took the women’s crown in 24.27 sec­onds, and Dres­sel went 21.53 in the men’s event. Both are No. 3 in the world this year. Each event win­ner qual­i­fies for the na­tional team that will com­pete next month in the world cham­pi­onships. The 200 in­di­vid­ual med­ley was the most emo­tional event. Two-time NCAA champ Ella Eastin did not qual­ify af­ter fin­ish­ing be­hind Melanie Mar­galis and Madisyn Cox in the women’s race. Eastin also lost a chance to make the team with a dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion in the 400 IM. Abrahm DeVine re­bounded from his dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion in the 400 IM to qual­ify af­ter fin­ish­ing sec­ond to Chase Kal­isz in the 200 IM.
