Simply AMAZINGger!!

She did it again.

When records fall, it is always a special thing to watch. When records are completely obliterated, the feat is nothing short of amazing.

And that, in a nutshell, is Alicia Aemisegger ('10, Princeton). Aemisegger electrified the home crowd with as dominating of a performance as any in the history of the Women's swimming competition. Not only did Aemisigger annihilate the Meet record by almost 15 seconds, she also destroyed her own Ivy and Pool record of 9:47.14 by unloading a blistering 9:37.55.

It should also be noted that fellow freshman, Alexandra Clarke (Harvard, '10) also bested the meet record with her swim. Unfortunately for her, on this night, nobody was going to catch Aemisigger. She was simply amazing.
