COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State swimmers, both current and past, posted impressive times this weekend at the annual Mike Peppe-John Bruce Memorial Invitational at the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion. In total, the Buckeyes won 10 events and set six meet records.

Sam Cherverton, a Class of 2011 graduate and Canadian National Team member, clocked a 4:11.57 in the 400 freestyle, nearly six and a half seconds faster than the previous meet record of 4:17.57 set by Alex Norris in 2013. Not to be outdone, Norris finished second with a time of 4:15.78, also breaking her own record. Cheverton (first, 1:59.98) and Norris (second, 2:01.48) went 1-2 in the 200 freestyle in meet-record times.

Aliena Schmidtke had a strong showing on Saturday, winning the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly. Her freestyle time clocked in at 57.15 and her butterfly was a meet and school record 59.59 (third fastest in Germany).  

In the 1500 freestyle, three Buckeyes occupied the top three spots – Lindsey Clary (first, 16:53.17), Sara Craft (second, 17:51.52) and Erin Dunseith (third, 18:00.13). Clary’s time was a meet record.
