INDIANAPOLIS -- Rising junior breaststroker Molly Hannis continued to impress on the national scene Friday, reaching her third A final at the U.S. World Championship Trials.
Hannis saved her best for last, placing fourth in the 100-meter breaststroke in a time of 1 minute, 7.48 seconds to finish her stay at the five-day meet. She took sixth in the 50 breaststroke and eighth in the 200 breaststroke earlier in the two days before.
It has been a strong year thus far for Hannis. She swam the breaststroke leg of the Lady Vols' NCAA winning 200- and 400-yard medley relays and also earned All-America honors in the 100 and 200 breaststroke. She set school records in both those individual events during the year, holding the SEC record for a time.
In other races at the World Championship Trials, former Vol and SEC champ Brad Craig had another good evening in the 200 breaststroke himself, winning the consolation race and taking ninth overall in 1:02.18.
The meet concludes Saturday.
100 Breast: 4. Molly Hannis, 1:07.48
100 Breast: 9. Brad Craig, 1:02.18
