Women 200 Breaststroke – 2013 Big 12 Swimming and Diving Championships – as reported by Catherine Wagner
Texas Longhorn Laura Sogar was absolutely dominant in her final event of the meet, finishing first in 2:05.25. She faded slightly on the final 50, but with a little more rest should definitely be able to dip under 2:05. Her time would have won the SEC Championships last weekend against a very tough field, so Sogar has a lot to be pleased with from her swim. This is going to be a great race at NCAA’s with the likes of Sogar, Caitlin Leverenz, Breeja Larson, Annie Zhu, Micah Lawrence… and the list goes on. Gretchen Jaques and Skylar Smith, both of Texas, were second and third in times of 2:11.47 and 2:12.75.
