WOMEN’S 100 Breaststroke – Reported by SwimSwam – 2014 Arena Grand Prix

Hello outside smoke. Jessica Hardy was all by herself in this race in lane one and was more than pleased with the result. “For this time of the year, I’m more than grateful to be able to get under 1:07″. What’s even more important than the time for Hardy is that even though training at this point in the season is tiring, she’s having fun. Micah Lawrence was the top seed going into tonight and came out with a second place finish with a great time, touching in at a 1:07.58, also bettering her time from Mesa like Hardy. There was a tie for third with Katie Meili and Emily McClellan, both touching at 1:08.77s. Molly Hannis had great first half speed but faded to fifth with a time of 1:09.15. Lilly King wasn’t able to better her impressive time from this morning but garnered a sixth place finish in a 1:09.93. Emma Reaney and Laura Sogar closed out the final, sticking close to their morning times with a 1:10.52 and 1:10.56, respectively.
