Ohio State Women Break Big Ten 200 Medley Meet and Conference Record

The Ohio State women broke the Big Ten Meet and Conference record in the 200 medley relay as they touched in a time of 1:33.64 to kick off the 2022 Big Ten Championships. The relay finished ahead of Michigan who touched second in a time of 1:34.69.

The team consisted of Emily Crane, Hannah Bach, Katherine Zenick, and Teresa Ivan. They broke the record set in 2018 by Indiana that included Lilly King on the breaststroke leg.

Notably, Bach swam a faster breaststroke leg than King did in 2018. King’s fastest split ever was a 25.36 which she swam at the 2019 Big Ten Championships.

The relay also set a new Ohio State school record as the previous school record was a 1:34.46 from the 2021 Big Ten Championships.
