TribLive: Gateway sophomore Olivia Livingston set the pool at Bucknell on fire last year with a state-record time of 22.73 seconds in the AAA girls 50 free and a runner-up finish in the 100 free (49.53).
All eyes again will be on Livingston on Wednesday and Thursday as she attempts to defend her 50 free championship and goes for gold in the 100. She is seeded first in both.
Livingston's 50 free time at WPIALs — 22.71 — surpassed her WPIAL record set last year and is faster than her state-record swim from last March.
Her seed time in the 100 is 49.57, and she also is gunning for the state record of 49.01 set in 2012.
