MINNEAPOLIS, Neb. (KOLN) - Nebraska senior Autumn Haebig captured the first Big Ten Conference swimming title in school history on Thursday night, when she raced to a school-record time of 1:44.39 in the 200 freestyle at the 2021 Big Ten Championships at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center.

Haebig, a 2020 CSCAA All-American from Grafton, Wis., won Nebraska’s first individual title since Lauren Bailey claimed the 1,650-yard Big 12 Conference title in 2007.

Haebig’s school-record time eclipsed her previous record of 1:44.94 set at last year’s conference meet.

Complete coverage of Nebraska’s day at the Big Ten Swimming Championships in Minneapolis and Diving Championships in West Lafayette, Ind., will follow shortly.
