Mark of a champion

Swimmer Mark Andrew wins fourth straight Ivy title in 400-yard individual medley.

Mark Andrew holds up four fingers after winning four straight 200 IM at Ivy Championships.

Senior swimmer Mark Andrew won his fourth consecutive conference championship in the 400-yard individual medley (IM) this past weekend at Brown’s Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

Andrew set the pool record with a time of 3:41.00. It was also his new personal record and a record for the Ivy Championships.

He is only the second Ivy League swimmer to win the 400 IM four times in a row.

From Middletown, Ohio, Andrew also won an Ivy League Championship in the 200 breast, finishing with a time of 1:54.38, a new Penn record.

Not finished, he was part of the first-place 400 free relay team with seniors Thomas Dillinger and Mark Blinstrub, and sophomore Sean Lee. They set a program record time of 2:52.26.

The Quakers finished third at the Ivy Championships with 1120.5 points, behind first-place Harvard (1432.5) and second-place Princeton (1209.5). Penn swimmers and divers set 10 different program records.
