I had a few folks ask a couple of weeks ago how former and future Boisean Breeja Larson had been doing since the Olympics in August, and I vowed to do a better job at keeping people in the loop. This is a very busy time in the college swimming season as conference championship meets are just finishing up and final preparations for the NCAA Championship meet in March are being made. For Breeja, her SEC conference championship meet was this past week at her home pool in College Station, TX. In the end she walked away with conference championships in the 100 breast, 200 breast, and the 400 medley relay, the 100 breast coming in NCAA and American record fashion and the 200 breast and 400 medley relay setting new SEC records. While these are great accomplishments (enough to garner the SEC Swimmer of the Year award, upsetting Olympic medalists Elizabeth Beisel and Allison Schmitt) the real challenge remains at NCAA's March 21st-23rd in Indianapolis. Here she will attempt to defend her NCAA crown in the 100 Breastroke, a race she hasn't lost in nearly 2 years, and take the crown in the 200 Breastroke, a race that she has finished 2nd and 3rd in the last two seasons, but since has set the American and NCAA record. Above is a link to a small writeup about Breeja's record setting 100 Breast at conference, and I will try to post some links come NCAA time on how to follow her action in Indy. The support for Breeja has been awesome and hopefully she'll have a few more pieces of hardware to bring home in a month's time.
