The Indiana Hoosiers got the Big Ten Championships started just narrowly missing the NCAA and American Records in the 200 medley relay. Ali Rockett (23.63), Lilly King (25.84), Christie Jensen (22.67) and Grace Haskett (22.02) won the Big Ten title with a 1:34.16. That swim narrowly missed Cal’s record from last year of 1:34.10 and Stanford’s American Record from 2016 of 1:34.15.

Stanford’s American Record of 1:34.15 was set at Pac-12’s in 2016 with Ally Howe (23.62), Sarah Haase (26.20), Janet Hu (22.82) and Lia Neal (21.51). The NCAA record was set at NCAA’s last year of 1:34.10 by Cal who had two international swimmers on the relay. Kathleen Baker (23.62), Abbey Weitzeil (26.67), Noemie Thomas (22.70) and Farida Osman (21.11) swam for Cal last year and will hang on to the record for another day.

Minnesota (1:35.06) and Ohio State (1:35.51) finished second and third. Michigan was disqualified in the race, and that puts a damper on their title defense.

UPDATE:

Ohio State was originally third in the race but coaches and officials had a meeting this morning in Columbus about a possible missed disqualification. Upon further review, Ohio State’s breaststroker Hanna Gresser had a -0.09 reaction time, which was worse than Michigan’s Daria Pyshnenko’s -0.06 early takeover.

The results and team scores have been updated to reflect the change.
