Carlson's previous best time in the 100 breast was 1:07.71 in the Southwest Conference Championships in Grand Junction on Feb. 8. Carlson's winning time at the state swim meet was 1:07.09.
Carlson had been near the top five in most of her competitions throughout the season in the 500 yard freestyle with her best time of the season coming at the Southwest Conference Championships. That time was 5:37.58 and Carlson's time in state competition this year was a personal best 5:36.85 and a 10th place finish.
