COLUMBUS, Ohio - Samantha Feulner won three individual freestyle events and Jimmy Brooks recorded a new team season-best time in the 100 butterfly, highlighting the weekend of competition for the Purdue swimmers at the Ohio State Winter Invitational Saturday and Sunday.
Feulner captured the 100 free Saturday and the 50 and 200 Sunday, posting personal season-best times in all three events.
Brooks' preliminary time of 48.72 in the 100 fly was nearly half of a second better than Zach Johnson's team-best time (49.15) set at the Ohio State Invitational in December. Brooks settled for fourth place in the final after posting the top time in the prelims.
Joe Wulf continued to improve with each meet since the start of second semester. His times in the 100 (56.24, 2nd) and 200 breaststroke (2:02.87) were personal season bests and ranked among the top five fastest for the Boilers this season.
For the women, Alex Carmack and Megan Roach each won an event and finished second in another. Carmack captured the 100 breaststroke and took second to Roach in the 200 breast. Roach was second in the 200 individual medley, an event won by Sarah Dunleavy.
Other highlights included Julia Comodeca's victory in the 200 backstroke, Sebastien Aube's win in the B final of the 500 free and a pair Purdue seasonal top five times from Jacob Robinson in the 100 (5th) and 200 back (4th).
The Big Ten Championships are up next for both the Purdue men and women. The University of Iowa will serve as the host of both meets this season, with the women's championships set for Feb. 15-18 and the men's championships slated for 22-25.
