Tonight, it was the 100 free, and it was Moesch’s best race of the meet. She entered the meet with a personal best of 49.73 from 2019, then swam a 48.39 in prelims to post the top time. In finals, she clocked a 47.90, meaning she not only broke 49 for the first time today, she broke 48 as well.

Great swims. I saw her 200 and her turns could use some help. I assume she will be even better LCM but If she can improve these even a bit she could snag a NAG.
