I'm not sure why the app is so sensitive to the split-screen view (which I think is what's happening), but there is no way to turn it off. (It happens on my iPad too.) Two other people have written me this week with similar comments. I'll be passing the feedback along to the team.
Thanks for taking the time to post.
What is the answer? This is extremely annoying!
Since iOS's split-screen view will always give you the option to open whichever app you opened last when you tap the right-side center of the screen, about the only thing you can do to keep it from ever happening is disable the feature (on the device go to Settings -> General > Multitasking > then toggle off Allow Multiple Apps).
You can also make it so Sketch isn't the app that opens there (another app will very likely just as consistently open in it's place). Here's how to do that:
When you're in another app, swipe to split-screen view.
When Sketch shows up, swipe down from the top of the screen to get a list of additional apps.
Choose another app (that's not Adobe Sketch).
Then close split-screen view.
Then restart your device.
When you open it again try swiping again to see if Sketch still opens.
After the restart, split-screen should work as it was intended... defaulting to the last app that was opened in split screen view.
Hope that helps.
Thank you Sue! I'll try it when I get home from work. Have a great weekend!

You too Andy.
One of those options should work great for you. For me... I turned off Allow Multiple Apps. I never use(d) it.
