Ohio State also won three of the five relays, setting Big Ten championship records in the 200-yard medley (1:33.64) and 400-yard medley (3:26.35) relays while also winning the title and setting a school record in the 800-yard medley relay (6:58.17).
Eight total Buckeyes earned first-team All-Big Ten honors: Bach, Emily Crane, Fulmer, Paige Hall, Teresa Ivan, Romano, Katherine Trace and Katherine Zenick. All eight of those Buckeyes were on at least one of the winning relay teams.
The Ohio State women’s swimming and diving team has now won eight overall Big Ten titles in program history. It’s the sixth Big Ten title for Ohio State head coach Bill Dorenkott, who previously won three titles at Penn State before winning each of the last three titles with the Buckeyes.
