  2. Lindsey Clary, Ohio State, 4:06.10

In a race that featured last year’s NCAA 2nd and 6th place finsihers, it was 16 year-old Emma Muzzy of the Virginia Gators who took this race out fast, jumping out to a lead at the 50, and holding it through at least the 175.  Minnesota’s Brooke Zeiger took the lead at the 200 mark.  Zeiger built her lead throughout the breaststroke leg, splitting 1:08.27 as she lookedstrong all the way.  That gave her a two second lead over OSU’s Lindsay Clary and Muzzy, and Zeiger easily maintained that lead throughout the final leg, touching in 4:02.71.   Clary finished 1-2, followed by another Buckeye, Meg Bailey.
