BALTIMORE (November 30, 2018) – Senior KaSandra Kaplan (Detroit), sophomore DeAngela Fobbs (Upper Marlboro, Md.), and freshmen Madison Freeland (Glenside, Pa.) and India Jackson (Philadelphia) etched themselves into the Howard University record books as they set a new school mark in the women’s 400 medley relay, posting a 3:58.09 time, at the H2ounds Invitational session one.
“This is a great achievement,” said Howard Men’s & Women’s Swimming & Diving head coach Nicholas Askew. “I know the hard work those four put in during practice and it showed today.”
The previous mark was established at the 2017 Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) Championships.
Other notable performances from session one included sophomore Kegan Ford (Port-of-Spain, Trinidad & Tobago) registering the school’s fifth-fastest time in the 50 Free (21.23) while men’s 400 medley relay squad of Ford, seniors Alexander Barnes (Rockledge, Fla.) and Farion Cooper II (Nassau, Bahamas) and newcomer Miguel Davis, Jr. (Prince George’s County, Md.) produced the third-best mark in the program’s history (3:29.20).
Currently, both squads sit fourth overall in the event. Loyola (Md.) leads after session one.
