Craig Swims Fastest 100 Breast in U.S. in 2014



July 21, 2014


It was a big weekend for Tennessee Aquatics at the 2014 Speedo Championship Series event in Greensboro, N.C.

The squad collected six victories -- headlined by Brad Craig's fastest 100-meter breaststroke time by an American this year -- and 14 top-eight finishes.

Craig, a former SEC champ for the Vols, won the 100 breaststroke on Saturday in 1 minute, 0.88 seconds, marking the fastest time by an American in the world in 2014. He followed that up with a victory in the 200 breaststroke in 2:16.14.

Rising senior Molly Hannis swept the women's breaststroke events, winning the 100 in 1:09.47 and the 200 in 2:31.29.

Swimming in her home state, Faith Johnson collected two victories as well. The rising junior won the 50 freestyle in 25.74 and the 100 freestyle in 55.73.

Rising juniors Mary Griffith and Trevor Leland each posted three top-eight finishes. Griffith was second in the 200 freestyle (2:02.47) and 400 freestyle (4:15.43) and eighth in the 100 freestyle (58.06). Leland was one of the top distance swimmers of the weekend, placing third in the 1650 freestyle (16:12.53), fourth in the 800 freestyle (8:24.61) and sixth in the 400 freestyle (4:04.07).

Tennessee's next major event of the summer will be the Phillips 66 National Championships, which run Aug. 6-10 in Irvine, Calif.
