John Paschall, Reporter

Northwestern freestyler Jordan Wilimovsky capped off a record-setting sophomore campaign with a strong performance at the NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, on Saturday.

Wilimovsky finished fourth overall in the 1,650-yard freestyle event with a time of 14:44.36, more than 14 seconds faster than his time in the same event at last year’s national meet. Michigan’s Connor Jaeger won the event.

Wilimovsky, the only NU swimmer competing at the meet, also competed in the 500-yard freestyle event but finished 51st overall and did not score any points for NU.

The Cats finished 29th overall with 15 points, all of them coming from Wilimovsky’s 1650 swim.
