Fukuoka, Japan - Stanford's Shelly Ripple finished sixth in the finals of the women's 100 meter butterfly on Saturday at the FINA World Swimming Championships. Ripple recorded a time of 59.67 in the finals. She had also placed eighth in both the semifinals (59:96) and the heats (1:00.12) on Friday.
