Swimming in his home pool, Jack Conger out-raced Michael Andrew in the 50 fly the third time around on Saturday night in Austin at the TYR Pro Swim Series. Conger won the final race of the night with a 23.37 ahead of Andrew’s 23.43. Conger descended from a 23.90 to a 23.59. Both swimmers were tied after the semi-finals and the final was expected to be pretty much a shootout. Pun intended.
Conger held off Andrew to give him his second loss of the night after the latter lost to Nathan Adrian in the 50 free final. Both swimmers scored points for Kaitlin Sandeno‘s swim squad.
