Leading the way for the Cornhuskers was Genevieve Jorgenson who won four individual events. Jorgenson won the 500 free in a 4:45.16, about a second and a half off of her best time which she set at midseasons.

Jorgenson’s largest win came in the 1650 free as she won by almost 30 seconds touching in a 16:21.87, about eight seconds off her time from NCAAs last season.

Jorgenson was in a tight battle with teammate Sarah Barton in the 200 backstroke. Jorgenson touched in a 1:58.17, about two tenths ahead of Barton who swam a 1:57.39. Barton and Jorgenson battled it out once again in the 400 IM as Jorgenson touched in a 4:20.94 and Barton touched in a 4:22.10.

Barton picked up her own win as she won the 100 back in a 54.84. She also helped the team’s 200 and 400 medley relays to wins. The 200 medley relay consisted of Barton, Jojo Randby, Beatrix Tanko, and Emily Haimes. They won in a final time of a 1:41.52. Barton, Randby, Tanko, and Anna Vlachou combined for the win in the 400 medley relay, touching in a 3:39.59, winning by over four seconds.

Randby picked up two individual wins as well, winning the 50 free in a 23.65 and the 100 breast in a 1:01.62. Randby led a 1-2-3 finish in the 50 free as Emily Halmes (23.66) and Caitlin Carnes (24.17) were 2nd and 3rd.
