Carrier and Cook of Southwestern and DePauw Sail to 200-Yard Freestyle Titles

Jessie Carrier of Southwestern took the 200-yard freestyle tonight with a swim of 1:55.87. Carrier, a senior from Victoria, Texas, is the first swimmer from Southwestern to win this event. A very happy Carrier had a chance to talk about her swim after the race.

John Cook took off the blocks in lane six and finished the 200-yard freestyle in first place. The DePauw junior continued to show out - setting yet another SCAC record in a time of 1:39.45. The previous record of 1:41.22 had stood since 2001. Cook, who won the 200-yard free his freshman year, finished second a year ago but tonight became just the second two-time winner of the event. A native of Leawood, Kansas, Cook made it a goal to swim the 200-yard free in under 1:40 and had the chance to talk about race.
