GREENSBORO, North Carolina, December 13. NEWBURGH’s Lillia King talks about her future as a 100-yard breaststroker after putting up the fastest 15-16 100-yard breast of all time.
Atlantis’ Lindsey Horejsi downed the hallowed 15-16 U.S. National Age Group record of Megan Quann (now Jendrick) in the 100-yard breast during prelims of the USA Swimming Winter Junior Nationals, and King went right over the top in finals.
Horejsi clocked a 59.75 this morning to beat Quann’s previous 2000 record of 59.80 that stood since these girls were three years old. Tonight, King dropped a quick 59.67 to take the record into another stratosphere. She split it 27.69, 31.98. Horejsi took second in 1:00.21, as she couldn’t duplicate her earlier effort, while Walnut Creek’s Heidi Poppe took third in 1:00.64.
