Audrey Lawson began her competition with her signature event today at the US Open in Federal Way, Washington. Lawson bettered her best time of 2:18.03(seeded 53rd) by going an amazing 2:13.88. qualifying 10th and breaking the team record.
This time would also rank Audrey in the
top 75 all time for 17-18 year olds in USA Swimming
history and puts her just out of the top 150 times in the
World. Check back later to see how she finishes at finals!!!
UPDATE: Tonight at finals Audrey swam a brilliant swim but just fell short of her prelim time by going a 2:14.02. This time gave her a 13th place finish. Audrey became the first Clipper female to score at the US Open.
Way to Go Audrey!!
Note: Audrey Lawson will be attending LSU in the fall. She will join fellow teammate Nick Kunkel in being a part of a LSU Top 15 recruiting classes in the country.
