For the second straight day, Seward’s Lydia Jacoby found the podium Friday at the 2023 USA Swimming National Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Jacoby finished the 100-meter breaststroke final with a time of 1 minute, 5.16 seconds to earn a silver medal, a day after finishing second in the 50-meter breaststroke.
Once again, Jacoby finished behind Lilly King, who is the world-record holder in the event. King swam a 1:04.75 to edge past Jacoby, who was swimming for the Seward Tsunami Swim Club.
Jacoby, 19, is the defending Olympic champion in the event and won the 100-yard breaststroke at the NCAA championships as a freshman at the University of Texas earlier this year.
