Centre Makes a Splash in the 200-Yard Medley Relay

Centre College swept the women's and men's 200-yard medley relay less than 24 hours after sweeping the 400-yard medley realy. It was only the second time in the hostory of the SCAC swimming and diving championships that one school was able to sweep both the 200 and 400-yard medley relays. DePauw was the first back in 2007.

The men's relay team composed of Aaron Edwards, Brad Erickson, Hunter Owen and Jimmy Tatgenhorst swam the event in a record time of 1:33.54 - a record that had stood since Trinity swam a 1:34.69 in 2001. It was the first time in school history that Centre won the 200-yard medley relay. The men of Danville had a chance to talk about their record setting swim after the race.

For the women it was Collen Maggard, Caitlin Rhodes, Lis Starr and Meredith Angel who continued the dominant relay performance that Centre has displayed the entire meet. The Colonels swam the 200-yard medley in a record time of 1:46.17. Like the men, this was the first-ever Centre team to finish first in the event. Centre, who had finished second in this event the past two years, had the chance to talk about the race after receiving their first place medals.
