Women’s 200 Free

NCAA Record: 1:44.82 – Kendra Stern, Amherst (2011)
2016 Champion: 1:48.88 – Julia Wawer, Emory

The Eagles took full advantage of their three swimmers in tonight’s A final with first, second and fifth place finishes. Cindy Cheng took top honors in 1:46.82 followed by Fiona Muir in 1:47.78. Both women went out fast and had no problem securing the win as the race went on.

Kenyon duo Hannah Orbach-Mandel and Abby Wilson each raced to top finishes as Orbach-Mandel took third in 1:48.83 and Wilson touched fourth in 1:48.89. It was a great last 50 for Orbach-Mandel to give her the edge; her 27.60 split was the fastest of anyone in the field.

Kenyon’s Delaney Ambrosen cracked the 1:50 barrier tonight by racing to a 1:49.88 claiming the consolation final. Chicago’s Alison Wall also dipped under for the first time finishing next in 1:49.97. In an attempt to make a move on the final 75, Wall slightly ran out of room to catch Ambrosen.
