CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (February 22, 2014)—The Sacred Heart swim team continued to break program records in the final day of the Northeast Conference Championship at MIT.

Wagner captured its first NEC swimming title leading the pack with 844 points.

 

Early in the day, Crosby qualified for the finals in the 100 yard Freestyle with a program best time of 53.70. She one-upped herself later in the day, reaching the wall in just 53.65 for a thirteenth place finish in the final.
