PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, February 22. BEFORE tonight’s finals session at the Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships, Emma Seiberlich of The Episcopal Academy talked to SwimmingWorld.TV about her goals for the 100 backstroke final.

Seiberlich, who won the event at Easterns last year as an eighth-grader, talks about the specific time goal she had in mind going into the meet, and what she learned from her prelim swim that she took with her into finals.

(Editor’s note: Seiberlich won the final with a 55.60, the same time she posted in prelims.)
