Centre's Starr and DePauw's Baugh Race to Women's and Men's 200-Yard Individual Medley

It was the final time that Lis Starr would ever race for the 200-yard IM SCAC Championship and the senior took advantage of the big stage winning in a time of 2:06.36. It was the first time in the history of the SCAC championships that a women from Centre took first place in the 200-yard IM. Once again it was another SCAC Championships record that was broken as Starr swam past the field and into the record book breaking the previous record of four time 200-yard IM champion Katie Doogan of DePauw.

Starr who has finished second twice in this event earlier in her career talked about her race.

Sophomore Josh Baugh from Frankfort, Indiana won the men's 200-yard IM in SCAC Championships record time of 1:54.54. It was the first time since 2005 that a swimmer from DePauw took home this title. Baugh who was also apart of the record breaking 200-yard freestyle team now has two first place finishes on the evening.

Baugh discussed what this race meant to not only him but to his team as well, to listen, click here.
