Hawkeye women break two school records at Big Ten meet


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa’s women’s swimming and diving team started off the Big Ten meet in style, smashing school records in the 200-medley and the 800-freestyle relays.

The 200-medley record was set in the final by the team of sophomore Heather Arseth, juniors Karolina Wartalowicz and Abbey Tuchscherer, and freshman Olivia Kabacinski. The quartet swam to the wall in 1:40.97 for 10th place and a season-best time.

In the 800-freestyle releay, the women touched the end wall in 7:14.99, beating the old school mark, previously set in 2004, by four seconds. The 800 was swam by sophomore Becky Stoughton, Kabacinski, and juniors Emily Hovren and Lindsay Seemann recorded their own season high in the eighth-place finish.

The Iowa women will returned to the pool at the University Aquatic Center on the Minnesota campus for two more days, each beginning at 11 a.m. with the preliminaries races. The finals of each event will take place at 6:30 p.m. each day.

After two days of competition, Iowa is in 10th place with 58 points. Minnesota leads with 303.5, Indiana (211.5) is second, and Penn State (175) is third.
