Lara Jackson come back?

Posted by Carly Rose Jackson on March 22, 2011

My ever reliable Google Alert sent me these gems today:

“Arizona’s Margo Geer jumped into the top 15 all time in the sprint free with an 11th-ranked effort of 21.79. That swim puts her in contention for Arizona’s fifth win in the event at NCAAs with previous wins coming from Diane Johnson (1982), Ashley Tappin (1995) and Lara Jackson (2008, 2009)” available from Swimming World Magazine.

“Only Lara Jackson (21.27), Vanderpool-Wallace and Natalie Coughlin (21.46) have been faster.” also from Swimming World Magazine.

and my favorite:

“Auburn sprinting sensation Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace , an Olympian from the Bahamas, won the 50-yard free, with her time of 21.38 coming within .11 of the U.S. Open record set by Arizona’s Lara Jackson in 2009.” from the Austin-American Statesman.

That’s right 2011 swimming ladies, Lara’s still the woman to beat in the 50-free.
