Women’s Recap

The Northwestern women swept the pool Saturday evening, and ended the session with double the score of the 2nd-place Michigan State University.  The Wildcats got things rocking with a pool record in the 200 medley; each NU women had the fastest split in the field en route to a 1:37.69 victory.  The Wildcats bookended the session with a 7:17.69 win in the 800 free, led by Malorie Han‘s 1:48.36 split.

Calypso Sheridan also broke a pool record with a 4:08.76 in the 400 IM, as she won by nearly 12 seconds.  Sheridan’s time was good for a NCAA B cut.  She’d get another one in the 100 breast, as she (1:01.34), Sophie Angus (1:01.84) and champion Tara Vovk (1:00.87) all finished at or under the NCAA B mark of 1:01.84.

Men’s Scores Through Day 2

The Northwestern men almost matched the Wildcat women’s performance, winning all but one event.

Like the women, the Wildcat men won both the 200 medley relay (1:28.79) and the 800 free relay, with Liam Gately‘s 1:38.05 split leading the field on the latter.

Gately also earned a win in the individual 200 free, taking it in 1:36.95.  That event was also noticeable for the appearance of former USC star and USA National Teamer Reed Malone, who took 3rd in 1:39.43.  Malone hasn’t had any swims in the USA Swimming database since the 2017 NCAA championships.

St. Louis University’s Grant Streid ruined what might have otherwise been a Northwestern sweep, taking the 100 fly in 48.97, just touching out Michigan State’s Michael Schwers by 0.08s.

Other event winners (all Northwestern):

  • Jeffrey Durmer, 400 IM, 3:53.34
