Saint Petersburg’s Melanie Margalis clipped SwimMAC’s Micah Lawrence for the women’s 100-meter breast title at the 2015 Arena Pro Swim Series Minneapolis.

Margalis edged Lawrence by the slimmest of margins, 1:07.44 to 1:07.45.  That put both on the outskirts of the top 20 times in the world this year, and a second back of Jessica Hardy’s pool record of 1:06.42 from 2011.

Louisville’s Andee Cottrell finished third overall in 1:08.14 with Breeja Larson taking fourth in 1:08.50.

Minnesota’s Rachel Munson (1:09.36), Penn State’s Melissa Rodriguez (1:09.63), Badger’s Emily McClellan (1:09.79) and Franko Jonker (1:09.80) also competed in the finale.

Emma Reaney, now back to Indiana after her time with SwimMAC, topped the B final in 1:09.64.  Toronto’s Martha McCabe (1:09.88) and T2’s Justine Bowker (1:09.91) placed second and third in the B final.
