Worcester, Mass. – Day three of the New England Women's And Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women's swimming and diving championships concluded on Saturday night and another record fell for Clark University as they sit in eighth place with 264 points.
The 200-yard medley relay foursome of Liz Barker (Augusta, Maine), Natalie Omary (New York, N.Y.), Gaby Jijon-Nemalceff (Quito, Ecuador) and Kelsey Clary (Cambridge, Mass.) blazed their way to a school record time of 1:51.87, good for a seventh place finish in the championship final.
Jijon-Nemalceff, meanwhile, just missed out on breaking her own school record in the 200-yard freestyle, posting a seventh place finish with a 1:51.91, a time that was less than .80 off of her historic mark.
Lydia Berry (Kennebunk, Maine) recorded the third fastest time in school history in the 400-yard individual medley, touching the wall in the 4:48.28.
The Cougars will return to action on Sunday for the final day of competition.
