The fast times from the Texas versus NC State dual meet just keep coming. Olympic gold medalist Lydia Jacoby got in on the action, clocking 57.45 for the win in the 100 yard breaststroke.

Top 17-18 U.S. Performers, Women’s 100 Breast:

  1. Lydia Jacoby, Texas — 57.45 (2023)
  2. Kaitlyn Dobler, USC — 57.71 (2021)

  4. Zoie Hartman, Georgia — 58.27 (2019)
  5. Alexis Wenger, UVA — 58.31 (2019)

Jacoby has made massive strides in the yards pool during her first season with the Texas Longhorns. While she was the #3 recruit for the high school girls’ class of 2022, there was lots of talk about how her yards performances were not up to par with what she had accomplished in the long course pool.

Jacoby silenced the those critiques at the Minnesota Invite and with this swim, further shows what she’s capable of in the yards pool. Before arriving in Austin, her lifetime best in 58.87. With championship season still to come, she has cut 1.42 seconds off that mark. She’s also moved into NCAA ‘A’ final contention–57.45 would have qualified second for finals and ultimately finished seventh.

Compared to her previous NAG, Jacoby improved on both her 50s, going out in 27.02 compared to 27.07 then coming home faster than her previous self as well.

This swim moves her up from third in the NCAA this season to second, passing her Longhorn teammate Anna ElendtKaitlyn Dobler leads the NCAA in 56.94 and is the only person under 57 seconds so far this season.

It was Elendt who was actually out first at the halfway mark, as she split a speedy 26.93 on her first 50. The German Olympian also had an excellent race, getting under 58 seconds to take second in 57.54. That’s just off the 57.48 she swam at the Minnesota Invite. Together, Jacoby and Elendt are a powerful pair that should rake in major points for Texas in this event come championship season.

Reminds me of reading a letter to the editor in Swimmer World back when they updated the age group from 15-17 to 15-18. The letter writer complained that 18 year olds would have the unfair advantage of a year of college swimming. Nevermind the unfairness to people like me who would have lost the ability to compete halfway through their senior year. It all seems like ancient history now.
