Lady Tigers Win Two COC Swim Titles

Metzger shaved a whopping 6.89 seconds off her previous best time in the event, finishing in 2:04.16. She had been seeded sixth going into the race.

McCrea was seeded fourth going into the 200-yard individual medley, but bettered her previous fastest time by nearly four seconds in winning a COC title in that event. McCrea finished in 2:17.47, about four seconds ahead of her nearest competitor.
