MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Harvard women's swimming and diving completed second-day action on Thursday at the Minnesota Invitational. Highlighting the day were a pair of performances that ranked among the top-10 all-time in Crimson history.
Junior Kennidy Quist was Harvard's top performer in the finals of the 50 free, posting a time of 23.02, to finish in 20th place. Her preliminary heat effort, however, was the ninth fastest by any Crimson swimmer in history, registering a time of 22.99.
First-year Felicia Pasadyn, meanwhile, turned in the fifth-best 200 individual medley time in program history, completing the finals in 1:59.56, to come in 11th place. Last time out at Columbia, Pasadyn recorded the eighth-fastest time in school history in both the 200 back and 400 IM.
After two days, Harvard is in sixth place with 73 points.
