Warren Posts Another School Record

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (2/16/18)---Concordia freshman Amy Warren finished off the second day at the MIAC Championship Meet the same way she began the conference meet by breaking her own school record in an individual medley race.

Warren and junior Ciara White earned team points by competing in the B final race on Friday night and helped the Cobbers stay in ninth place as a team after Day 2 at the conference meet.

On Thursday in the first prelim session Warren broke her own school record in the 200-yard individual medley by racing to a 2:17.13. That time was almost a full second faster than her previous school record of 2:18.03 which she set earlier in the season. Warren's time didn't get her into the B final race as she finished 20th in the event. It was the highest finish for CC athlete on Day 1 of the meet.    

Warren did her Thursday record feat one better by breaking her record in the 400-yard individual medley in the morning prelim session and then bettering that time in the B final at night. Warren clocked a 4:50.59 in the prelims which qualified her in the No.10 spot in the event. She was 5.56 seconds away from qualifying for the championship flight in the race.

Warren then came out and touched the wall in 4:46.96 in the B final to finish in 12th place and earned valuable team points. Warren's time in the final was almost 4-seconds faster than her prelim tim and all told she took off 9 seconds from her top time during the season.

White was the other Cobber team-point award winner for the first two days. She qualified for the B final in the 100-yard breaststroke after swimming a 1:09.79 and qualifying in the No.14 spot in the 100-yard breaststroke.

White improved on her prelim time in the B final but stayed in 14th place. She clocked a season-best 1:09.32 in the finals.

The top Cobber relay team on Day 2 was the quartet of Allison Marcus, White, Ann Marie O'Connell and Lydia Larson who swam a 1:58.53 in the 200-yard medley relay and finished in eighth place. Their time was a season best by almost four full seconds.
WHAT'S NEXT: Concordia will finish off the 2018 conference championship meet on Saturday, Feb. 17 when they compete in the prelims at 10:30 a.m. and then the finals at 6:30 p.m.
