Last night Ellen Williamson took to the water in the consolation finals of the 100 backstroke. Ellen swam to a personal best time of 1:02.58 and finishing 19th overall. This time breaks her previous team record and just fell short of the LSC record 17-18 record by .04. Ellen's time ranks her 135th in the World Rankings and qualifies her for the USA National Junior Team*, for her 2nd straight year and this year joining her brother Max.
Today both swimmers are off and will be back in action again tomorrow with Max swimming the 200 IM and Ellen will be swimming the 200 backstroke.
