Broersma sets LWC swimming record at MSC Championships
By Brady Budke
Kingsport, TN - Maaike Broersma broke her own previous school record in the 100-yard backstroke today at the Mid-South Conference Women's Swimming Championships, as the Lindsey Wilson women's swimming team remains in third place moving into the final day of action tomorrow. LWC, who has earned 251 team points, remains behind Cumberlands (KY) (leader with 514 points) and Indiana Wesleyan (second place with 451 points).
The original school record Broersma had in the 100-yard backstroke was set on Oct. 30 this season against Asbury, which was tabbed at 57.49. Broersma successfully beat that record time in the preliminaries today, touching the wall in 57.04 to qualify for the A-final. However, in the A-final, Broersma swam an even faster mark of 56.33 to win the A-final race alongside breaking her preliminaries record. She earns first team all-conference honors and a pair of A-cut standards for her performance.
Also in the 100-yard backstroke, Annissa Koekemoer and Juliana Villa each qualified for the A-final, with Koekemoer finishing sixth and earning a provisional standard (1:00.98) while Villa was close behind in eighth alongside also earning a provisional standard (1:01.28).
In the 100-yard butterfly, Allie Rutherford successfully qualified for the A-final. She went on to finish third in the A-final with a time of 59.71. Rutherford earns a provisional standard alongside third team all-conference honors.
The 200-yard freestyle featured a trio of Lindsey Wilson swimmers. Carlene Taylor earned a spot in the A-final, while Savannah Schoeman and Hailey Russo corralled spots in the B-final. Taylor went on to grab fifth place and a provisional standard in the A-final with her time of 2:00.28. In the B-final, Schoeman finished in the top spot and earned a provisional standard with a time of 2:01.18, while Russo was fourth at 2:10.12.
Sarah Lawson was the lone LWC swimmer in the 100-yard breaststroke, where she qualified for the B-final in the event. In the B-final, she produced a time of 1:18.17 which collected her eighth place.
Both relay teams that competed today for the Blue Raiders notched third place finishes and third team all-conference honors. In the 200-yard medley relay, the quartet of Broersma, Koekemoer, Rutherford and Taylor touched the wall in a time of 1:51.37 and earned an A-cut. The 800-yard freestyle relay saw Schoeman, Koekemoer, Taylor and Broersma finish in 8:05.87 for another A-cut.
