Wednesday Results

The first night of the Summit League Championships is in the books and Omaha has come up with two 3rd place finishes and one shiny new school record.

Omaha got the championship off to a solid start by setting a new school record in the 200 yard medley relay. The team of Cami Hansberry, Maddie Hutt, Jenna Foiles, Anna Haxby broke the old record of 1:45.61 by over a full second with a time of 1:44.23.

Later in the 800 yard medley relay Omaha got 3rd again as the team of Whitney Korgan, Erin Wright, Natalie Renshaw, Mattea Fosbender swam a 7:37.06.

On Thursday Omaha will have two divers at 3 meters, two relay teams in the 200 yard freestyle, and twenty individual swimmers competing in three events. Swimming preliminaries will begin at 10 AM CT, diving preliminaries begin at 12 PM CT, and all of the finals begin at 5 PM CT.

Here’s the updated projections now that we know actual totals from Wednesday. No movement amongst the projected order of finish to this point.

Here’s how Omaha did on Wednesday…
Wednesday:
200 Yard Medley Relay – 1:41.56/1:43.20/1:44.23 – School Record = 1:45.61
Projected Points: 32
3rd – 1:44.23 – Omaha ‘A’ – Cami Hansberry, Maddie Hutt, Jenna Foiles, Anna Haxby – NEW SCHOOL RECORD
11th– 1:52.09 – Omaha ‘B’ – Tasha Posthuma, Jordane Linhart, Katie Maier, Morgan Cullison

800 Yard Freestyle Relay – 7:24.35/7:32.98/7:37.06 – School Record = 7:31.21
Points: 32
3rd – 7:37.06 – Omaha ‘A’ – Whitney Korgan, Erin Wright, Natalie Renshaw, Mattea Fosbender
6th – 7:43.26 – Omaha ‘B’ – Ashley Kneifl, Hannah Johnson, Christen Young, Lexi Bergeron

And here’s who’s listed as competing on Thursday…

BTW – In individual events the top eight from the preliminaries will race for 1st through 8th in the evening while 9th through 16th will race for 9th through 16th. You can’t move up from the second group to the first so those preliminaries are very important and can’t just be breezed through for the top swimmers. Along with that 9th is worth two points less than 8th and 10th is a full four points less than 8th. Since 9th is often faster than 8th during the finals you can see just how much making the cut for the main final means.
