University of Hawaii swimmer Tahna Lindquist of Kodiak made waves last season as a freshman when she qualified for the conference finals in three events and won bronze in the 200-yard backstroke.

Look for the sophomore to make an even bigger splash this year.

Lindquist is already knocking on the door of her personal best in the 100-yard backstroke, clocking a time of 56.88 seconds in the season opener in Arizona.

Her PR in the event is 56.26 at the MPSF Championships.

Lindquist, of Kodiak High fame, was an all-conference first-team pick in the 200 back and second team in the 100 back.

She is one of Hawaii’s best swimmers again this year and flexed her muscles in the season opener.

She earned top-3 events in all four events, highlighted by a second-place showing in the 200 back. She was also third in the 100 back, 200 IM and 200 medley relay.
