Hartwick women heading to ECAC tourney


Also Thursday, Miller won the 400 IM (4:07.81) and the 100 backstroke (50.90). Both set conference records and were “B” cut times for the NCAA Division III meet. Miller also successfully defended his 100 backstroke title.

On Saturday, Miller won the 200 back in a conference-record 1:51.62. That also was a “B” cut qualifier.

Roe finished second to Miller in the 100 back in 51.24, which was also a “B” cut time.  He was also part of the 800-yard freestyle relay with Walsh, Miller and sophomore Daniel Donaghy that placed second. Roe set a school record in the 50 free of 21.77. He finished seventh.

Vaughn finished seventh in the 100-yard breaststroke with a school record time of 59.66.

The men set nine individual school records and two relay marks over the four-day event that began Wednesday. Miller had a part in five of the records. Roe and Walsh were part of three.

O-State’s women finished fifth.

They broke six individual records and three relay records.

Sophomore Carly Cahill was part of five school records, including two individual marks. Cahill set individual records in the 200-yard freestyle and the 200-yard backstroke and was a member of all three record-setting relays.

Cahill’s mark in the 200 free of 1:57.52 was nearly two seconds faster than the mark set in 2005 by Sarah Millspaugh. Her time of 2:10.19 in the 200 back was over a second faster than the record set by Michelle Sano in 2009.

Cahill teamed with junior Chandler Shepard (Delhi), and freshmen Taylor Waldrop and Lauren Zentko to set school records in the 400 free relay (3:38.67) and the 800 free relay (8:01.86).

Cahill and Shepard teamed with senior Jacqueline Haight and junior Alexxa Poliachik in setting a school record in the 200 medley relay of 1:52.75.

Zentko broke her school record in the 1650 relay and earned one of Oneonta’s two medals during the championships. Zentko became the first O-State female to go sub-18 minutes in the event, finishing in 17:58.99. Her second school record came in the 500 free with a fourth-place time of 5:08.45.
