Complete Results

200 Back

In the 200 back, sophomore Liz Glenn (Greenwood Village, Colo.) was the second athlete out of prelims and finished second in the finals as well, breaking the two minute barrier for the first time this season with her 1:59.31 performance.  Freshman Noelle Klockner (Marlboro, N.J.) swam her way onto the Tribe record board, timing 2:04.79 for 18th place overall and ranking ninth in school history.

100 Free
Megan Howard's (McLean, Va.) unbelievable week continued in the 100 free, where she swam a lifetime-best 50.78 to tie for the top seed coming out of prelims on Saturday morning.  That time ranks her third all-time at W&M, and she followed up with a fourth-place 51.17 in the finals.  Junior Sara Shaner (Clarendon Hills, Ill.) also reached the A-finals, placing sixth overall in 51.32 seconds.  Classmate Jen Bentley (Jamestown, N.Y.) tied for 12th overall out of the B-final, timing 52.38 seconds for 4.5 team points.

200 Breast

Freshman Lindsey Winston (Henrico, Va.) also put her name onto the top-10 lists, finishing sixth overall in 2:20.95.  She now ranks 10th in school history in the 200 breast.  Senior Emily Bart (Cherry Hill, N.J.) was eighth in the event, touching the wall in 2:22.16.

200 Fly
Freshmen also upheld the College's honor in the 200 fly, with Rachel Cortwright (Ridgewood, N.J.) taking 14th in 2:08.24, and classmate Jessie Ustjanauskas (West Hartford, Conn.) was 16th in 2:09.05.

1650 Free
In the mile, senior Caylyn Tate (Sterling, Va.) recorded both the third-fastest 1000 free in school history, and the second-fastest 1650 free as well.  She finished second overall in 16:51.29, behind only her school record from last spring's CAA meet, and her 1000-yard split of 10:12.01 was both the third-fastest of her career and third-fastest ever for W&M.  Freshman Hannah Vester (Cincinnati, Ohio) timed 17:27.23 for 12th place in the event, and senior Meghan Baker (New Rochelle, N.Y.) completed her 33 laps in 17:37.42 for 14th place.

400 Free Relay
The final event of the week was the 400 free relay, where the Tribe took second overall in 3:25.91, the 10th-fastest time in school history.  Megan Howard led-off the team, and was followed into the water by Sara Shaner, Jen Bentley, and sophomore Greta Schneider (Moorestown, N.J.).  W&M also got 22 points from the ninth-place team of Noelle Klockner, Sara Schad (North Yarmouth, Maine), Gabrielle Mizerak (Manassas, Va.), and Jessie Ustjanauskas.  The quartet combined for an aggregate time of 3:31.87.

William and Mary now has two weeks off for Thanksgiving, before wrapping up the fall season hosting Georgetown on Saturday, Dec. 1.
