Northwestern sophomore Calypso Sheridan broke the Northwestern school record tonight in Evanston, clocking a 1:54.11 to take the 200 back with an NCAA ‘B’ cut. She took almost a full second off of the old mark, a 1:55.09 done by Melissa Postoll in 2017, and she also set a new pool record. Sheridan now holds school records in both backstrokes, the 200 breast, and the 200 IM. Junior Krystal Lara was 2nd in 1:56.16, her first time under 1:57.

Sheridan also won the 100 IM, hitting a 55.89 to win easily there.

NU freshman Tara Vovk set a new pool record in the 200 breast, taking down Sheridan’s mark with a 2:10.67, which is the third-best time in NU history. Sophomore Rachel Tseng won the 1650 by over ten seconds, posting a 16:35.55.

Malorie Han, a junior for the Wildcats, added a win of her own in the 100 free at 49.53. She’s now broken both the 23.0 and 50.0 barriers for the first time this weekend. Han was also 48.78 on NU’s winning 400 free relay, their only sub-50 split there.

William and Mary’s Maria Oceguara was the sole non-Northwestern victor, going 2:00.49 in the 200 fly.
