 What you need to know:


Ivy Martin – the B1G record holder – has done it again!

200 free relay prelims Wisconsin_TBX_8518

Martin swam a season best time of :21.61 while placing second in the 50 yard freestyle. Although the Badgers did not have the performance in the 200 free relay that they had hopped for, Martin had an incredible last 50 free.

But the real secret behind this badger’s success, is her consistency.


In 2012…

  • Martin swam a :22.60 in prelims and in finals to take third at B1G’s.

In 2013…

  • NCAAs: 22:10 at prelims, 22.03 in finals to take sixth
  • B1G Championships: 21.84 at prelims, 21.86 to take first
  • Named Big Ten Swimmer of the Championship

In 2014…

  • NCAAs: 21.92 at prelims, 21.79 to take fourth
  • B1G Championship: 21.58 at prelims, :21.68  to take first
  • Named Big Ten Swimmer of the Championship

In 2015….

  • NCAAs: 21.57 at prelims,:21.61 at finals to take second
  • B1G Championship: 21.69 in prelims, :21.65 in finals to take first
  • Named Big Ten Swimmer of the Championship

Unfortunately, this was Martin’s senior year and she swam her fastest time at B1G Champs. in 2014.


Quick Hits:

  • Penn State’s Carolyn Fittin swam a :21.50 on her relay leg in the consolation final of the 200 free relay
  • Minnesota sophomore diver Yu Zhou took third

  • 21st place: Purdue
  • 22nd place: Illinois

Mistake: Ivy’s fastest time actually came from her prelim swim 21.57 not Big 10’s in 2014!

Ivy Martin went her best time, in 2015, at NCAAs, in prelims this morning. 21.57, as you reported. Nothing unfortunate about that at all!!!!
