Multiple Huskers Set Lifetime Bests in Thursday Prelims

By NU Athletic Communications

Columbus- In the preliminary session of the second day of the Big Ten Championships, multiple Huskers set career bests and found their way onto the Husker all-time records. 

Freshman Autumn Haebig continues her impressive campaign with her 13th place finish in the 500-yard freestyle (4:43.60), which qualifies as a B seed in the finals. Team captain Kaylyn Flatt came in at 4:50.14, which sits at #8 on the all-time records list, followed by Rachel Powers at 4:52.60, which will claim the 14th spot on the list.

In the 200-yard individual medley, Tori Beeler (1:59.52) and Anna McDonald (1:59.91) both posted C-seed times for the finals coming in at 18th and 22nd, respectively. McDonald's performance sits at #3 on the all-time list. 

In the 50-yard freestyle, Lindsay Helferich finished at 23.04, which is a #9 all-time record for the Huskers. 

"We had a strong morning with many lifetime bests, and many others close to a lifetime best," head coach Pablo Morales said of the productive morning for the Huskers. "We have three scoring swims tonight and a 400-yard medley relay, hoping to follow last night's good relays."

The qualifying Huskers will compete in the finals tonight.
