Iowa women's swimming sets pool records


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa women’s swimming and diving team downed the Michigan State Spartans, 182-117, on Oct. 19. In their regular-season opener the Hawkeyes won 12 events while also breaking a McCaffree Pool record.

Freshman Olivia Kabacinski placed first in two events — the 200 free and the 50 free (23.23 seconds). Kabacinski’s time was 0.6 seconds faster than the previous pool record (23.29), which had stood at McCaffree Pool for 50 years.

Iowa’s depth proved to be the key against the Spartans. Heather Arseth, Karolina Wartalowicz, Ashley Horodyski, and Kabacinski claimed a victory in the 200-medley relay (1:46:26).

Arseth ended the night with two more victories, the 100 back (57.71) and 100 free (51.61). Wartalowicz contributed as well, claiming first place in the 100 breast (1:05.79) and 200 breast (2:23.09).

Sophomore Becky Stoughton claimed the title in the 1,000 with a time of 9:58:55.

Junior Lindsay Seemann also added a pair of victories. The Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, native placed first in both the 200 back (2:02.69) and 400 individual medley (4:26.15). Although the Hawkeyes dominated the Spartans, Michigan State was able to clam event titles in the butterfly.
