crimson make big statement in 1000; clarke takes title


The Harvard Crimson entered the 1000y Freestyle race with a comfortable lead over Princeton, despite the Tigers chipping away at the deficit from Day 1 with a huge win in the 200 Medley Relay. In just over 10 minutes and three seconds, the Crimson looked to be on cruise control.

Capitalizing on the absence of defending champion Alicia Aemisegger in one of her signature events, the Crimson took a massive 112 points in one race.

Led by distance swimming extraordinaire, junior Alexandra Clarke, the Crimson took the top-3 places, and a fifth place in the event. Clarke took top honors after swimming a lightning quick 9:43.09. But her teammates were not far off of her pace. Sophomore Christine Kaufman and junior Katie Faulkner also went under the 10 minute mark at 9:51.29 and 9:58.52, respectively. 

Not to be outdone, freshman Kristi Korsberg dropped 13 seconds off of her preliminary time to finish fifth for the Crimson.

Add those numbers up and the Crimson look to be in control.
