Pool records fall in win over Carnegie Mellon

Ksenia Golovkina set new Gregory Pool records in the 100 and 200 breaststroke on Saturday. The previous 200 record had stood since 2001.
Ksenia Golovkina set new Gregory Pool records in the 100 and 200 breaststroke on Saturday. The previous 200 record had stood since 2001.

Denison senior Ksenia Golovkina (Newton, Mass./Newton South) set two Gregory Pool records in the 100 and 200 breaststroke, highlighting nine DU victories which resulted in a 149-123 win over No. 14 Carnegie Mellon on Saturday afternoon.

Golovkina, who was swimming the final home meet of her career, set her first pool record in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:04.49.  She broke her own record in the event, topping her former Gregory Pool best time of 1:05.07 set in 2010.  Later in the meet she posted a time of 2:21.42 in the 200 breaststroke which shattered a 10-year old pool record held by seven-time All-American and 2001 alum, Katie Sprague, by more than two seconds.  Both times were strong NCAA provisional qualifying times for the 13-time All-American, Golovkina.

In other action, Golovkina was also a part of the wining 200 medley relay team along with Maddie Armitage (Columbus, Ohio/Upper Arlington), Morgan Nuess (Kettering, Ohio/Dayton Christian) and Alyssa Swanson (Aurora, Colo./Regis Jesuit).  That group posted a solid 'B' cut time of 1:45.93 in the event.

Swanson would also go on to post wins in the 100 free and 200 free.  In the 100 free her 52.26 marked her second-fastest time of the season.  It was only topped by her 'A' cut, 51.18 performance at the Miami Invitational in December.  In the 200 freestyle Swanson checked in at 1:52.85.

Other multiple winners included Nuess who picked up a win in the 50 freestyle to go along with her 200 medley relay victory.  In the 50 free she touched in 24.22.

Laurel Brabson (Boonsboro, Md./Boonsboro) posted a season-best time of 2:07.46 in the 200 butterfly to reach an NCAA provisional time.  In the 200 backstroke Emily Schroeder (Fishers, Ind./Hamilton Southeastern) logged a time of 2:05.36 to win the even and in the 1000 freestyle, Hilary Callen (Oswego, N.Y./Oswego) took the top spot with a time of 10:20.06.

The victory marked the seventh dual meet win of the season for the No. 3 ranked Denison Big Red.  It also marked their third win of the season against a nationally ranked opponent (Nov. 6 vs. #2 Kenyon and Jan. 22 vs. #15 Grove City).  This is the final warm-up before the 2011 North Coast Athletic Conference Swimming & Diving Championship on Feb. 10-12 from Canton, Ohio.  Denison University will serve as the host of this year's conference championship from C.T. Branin Natatorium.  Visit the official homepage of the 2011 NCAC Swimming & Diving Championship for more information.
