princeton grabs first in hotly contested 200 medley


The 200 yard medley nearly fell a year ago when Columbia marched into DeNunzio pool and pulled off what seemed to be an upset at the time. Certainly not a fluke by any stretch of the imagination, but an upset all the same. Coach Diana Caskey put an upstart lineup into the race with speed to burn.

And they did just that, tearing up the Princeton pool and almost ripping away the meet record from the 2003 Tigers.

Falling just short (.05), the Lions were back for another shot. And when Hannah Galey touched the wall for the final time, the team looked up and saw that they were under the meet record of 1:42.55 with a blistering 1:42.06.

They also saw the ominous No. 2 next to the score. Indicating second-place.

Because although the quartet fired through the Nassau County Aquatic Center waters, the Tigers had done so just a little bit quicker.

To the tune of 1:41.62.

Princeton used strong swims from Megan Waters, Alicia Aemisegger and Courtney Kilkuts to set up the grand finale between Galey and Justina DiFazio. After a fairly quiet start to the 2009 Championships, DiFazio looked to both her experience and her success record to carry the Tigers home. In her eighth career relay championship, DiFazio protected the lead that she inherited after the Kilkuts leg and propelled the Tigers back into the team championship discussion.
