Carmel Swim Club 15-year-old Alex Shackell won the women’s 100 fly tonight at the Speedo Sectionals meet in Indianapolis, swimming a 58.88. The swim marks a personal best for Shackell by 0.36 seconds, undercutting the 59.24 she swam in prelims, which was also a personal best. Entering the meet, Shackell’s best time sat at 59.61, a time which she swam at the 2021 Speedo Summer Championships East meet last August.

With the swim tonight, Shackell has now broken into the all-time top 10 rankings for 15-16 girls, and done so at just 15 years old. Her time comes in at #10, edging out now-Texas-Longhorn Olivia Bray by 0.01 seconds. Here is the updated all-time top 10 for 15-16 girls in the LCM 100 fly:

It’s important to note that Shackell has a fall birthday, so she will remain 15 through the meets at the end of the summer. She’s now just 1.01 seconds away from becoming the fastest 15-year-old all-time in the event. On that same note, while Shackell is well off Claire Curzan‘s NAG of 56.20 currently, she has nearly two years to work on getting down to that lofty mark.
