Published: February 8, 2013.
The Lewis University women's swimming team sits in seventh of 10 teams with 101 points after the second day of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Swimming Championships at the C.T. Branin Natatorium on Thursday (Feb. 7).
Senior Angela Cusack (Willow Springs, Ill./Lyons Township) and sophomore Cindy Jezuit (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton North) teamed up with freshmen Kinsey Coble (Lafayette, Ind./Jefferson) and Mackenzie Kummer (Addison, Ill./Addison Trail) in the 200-yard freestyle relay to post a time of 1:36.84, good for fourth place. The relay team set a NCAA B cut time and broke the school record time of 1:37.28 set by Cusack, Coble, Jezuit and Hannah Yancey (Orange Park, Fla./Daytona State College) on Nov. 30, 2012.
“The relay was a nice job of putting four solid swims together,” Lewis head women's swimming coach Roger Karns said. “They had good, tight exchanges and all four women posted really solid splits.
“It is the way coaches like to see relays swam.”
The third day of the GLIAC Swimming Championships start with preliminaries at 10:30 AM on Friday (Feb. 8) at C.T. Branin Natatorium. Finals begin at 5:30 PM.
