Indiana’s Lilly King moved to seventh all time in the 200-yard breast at the 2016 Big Ten Women’s Championships, while teammate Miranda Tucker (2:06.52) finished second for the Hoosiers.

King clocked a sizzling time of 2:05.58.  It downed the meet record of 2:05.98 from Minnesota’s Haley Spencer in 2013, and eclipsed Tucker’s prelims pool mark of 2:07.63.

More importantly, King’s time jumped her to seventh all time.  Only Emma Reaney (2:04.06), Breeja Larson (2:04.48), Kierra Smith (2:04.56), Rebecca Soni (2:04.75), Caitlin Leverenz (2:04.76) and Laura Sogar (2:05.04) have finished faster.

Purdue’s Emily Fogle raced her way into third in 2:08.07, while Michigan’s Emily Kopas (2:09.48) and Carolyn McCann (2:12.22) collected some important team points with fifth and seventh-place efforts.

Michigan remained in the lead, 1217-1069.5, against Indiana.  Ohio State (778), Minnesota (757.5) and Purdue (617.5) held steady in the top five.
