Fr., Raleigh, N.C./St. David's School
Shishkoff took first in each of her four events, all in NCAA "B" cuts, as Northwestern fell to No. 16 Tennessee on Saturday. The freshman's best performance came as she broke the Norris Aquatics Center pool record by over five seconds in the 1,650-yard freestyle at 16:28.01. Shishkoff also finished first in the 500 free (4:48.78), 400 individual medley (4:22.95) and 200 free (1:49.43) before helping the Wildcats earn their first relay "B" cut of the year with a time of 1:33.34 in the 200 free. This is Shishkoff's first career honor and the first for the Wildcats this season.
