Day 2 Meet Recap:
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (2/19/10)-- Cobber divers Amy Glubzinski and Lauren Trudeau reestablished the fact that Concordia is Diving University in the MIAC as the two finished first and second in the 3-meter event at the MIAC Championship Meet on Friday.
As a team, Concordia scored 112 team points on Friday and climbed into seventh place - only 18 points behind sixth place heading into the final day of competition.
Glubzinski and Trudeau were part of Pat Anderson's crew that had three athletes finish in the top 8 and a remarkable seven divers finish in the top 17. The 1-2 finish marks the third consecutive conference diving event that Glubzinski and Trudeau have posted a top 3 finish.
Aleina Weisz headlined the swimming events for Concordia on the second day of the championship meet. Weisz smahed her own school record in the 100-yard backstroke and finished in 12th place in the finals - the highest finish for a CC swimmer on Friday. Weisz raced to a 1:02.20 in the prelims in the afternoon which bettered her two-year-old record by over one full second. She then did that over a half second better in the finals when she recorded a new school record time of 1:01.82.
The other top individual swimmer on the day was Katie Coleman. A day after finishing 10th in the 500-yard freestyle, Coleman swam a 2:00.25 in the 200-yard freestyle and finished 14th. Her time in the finals was only .40 of a second off the school record set back in 2007.
For the second day a Cobber relay team made a huge splash by recording a season-best time. On Thursday the 200-yard freestyle team set a new school record and on Friday the 200-yard medley relay team of Weisz, Stacie Fossum, Whitney Walters and Amanda Suchanek swam a 1:57.05 and finished eighth. It was the fastest time by any CC 200-yard medley relay team in the last five years and was less than two seconds off the school record time of 1:55.16 set back in 2001.
Concordia will try and get into the top 6 in the final day of the conference meet on Saturday at the University of Minnesota.
