Swimming participates in MAC championship

The Mid-American Conference Swimming Championships started Thursday, and will continue throughout Saturday.

The day started with preliminaries in the 50 and 500 freestyle, as well as the 200 individual medley and ended with championships and consolations.

In the 100 freestyle, freshman Victoria Griffin has the fastest time in the MAC with 49.87 seconds, also setting that as the new school record. She also sits in the top 10 in the 50 freestyle and the 200 freestyle.

In five different relays, the Falcons landed spots in the top five, including second in both the 200 and 400 freestyle relay.

Joelle Scheps is in the top 10 in the MAC for the 200 freestyle, 100 butterfly and 200 IM. She remains undefeated in the 200 IM in dual meets.

To add to the lineup, Daniela Carrillo holds the third fastest time in the MAC in the 200 breaststroke and swam the fifth fastest time in the 100 breaststroke. Last year, she represented the Falcons in the NCAA Championships in these two events.

This year’s NCAA Championships will begin on March 20 in Minnesota.
