Meet Highlights

Columbia kicked off the 200 medley relay with a winning time of 1:46.31 from their B-relay. The A-relay was disqualified but would have had a top time of 1:42.92, which could have been a Dartmouth pool record (currently 1:43.83).

Dartmouth freshman Sarah Minnigh then took the 1000 free by nearly 12 seconds with a 10:26.43. Minnigh swept the distance events with her win in the 500 free (5:03.07). Minnigh teamed up with Ashley Post (5:05.89) to earn Dartmouth a 1-2 finish in the same event.

Shortly after, Columbia’s Mary Ashby set a new pool record in the 200 free with a 1:49.73, chipping the former record of 1:50.63. Ashby took her second win in the 100 free (50.12), just missing the pool record of 50.05.

In the 100 back, Columbia’s Mary Pruden nearly even split her race (28.10/28.70) to win with a final time of 56.80.

Dartmouth’s Mackenzie Stumpf moved from third at the first half of the 100 breast to first with her 33.86 final 50 split to finish with a 1:04.90. Stumpf also won the 200 breast with a comfortable 2:21.09 to sweep both breaststroke events for Dartmouth.

Columbia closed the meet out with a win in the 200 free relay with a 1:35.32, just missing another pool record (1:35.09).
