400 IM update

The Badgers will have a pair of swimmers in the consolation final of the 400-yard individual medley.

Senior Maddalena won her heat with the fastest time of the morning to that point, dropping 10 seconds off her seed time with a finish in 4:19.74.

The time ended up placing Maddalena 11th overall, giving her a spot in the consolation final.

She grabbed the lead during the breaststroke leg and had the top spot at the wall with 100 yards to go. She then extended her advantage over the final freestyle leg.

Maddalena's personal-best mark in the race is 4:16.53.

Senior Libby Brooks went 4:20.40 to finish sixth in her heat, and the time stacked up 15th overall. Her lifetime best in the event is 4:14.04.

Redshirt freshman Monika Stitski just missed a chance at scoring, finishing 17th in 4:21.31 to end up in tonight's  "C" final.
