April 30, 2012
CHICAGO - Former UIC women's swimmers Hannika Schleebs and Julia Shallcross teamed up to help produce a United States Masters Swimming Record in the 200 medley relay at the Illinois Masters State Meet held at the UIC Natatorium.
Along with Katie Braun from Northwestern, and Kelly McNichols, a Georgia alum, the foursome was aiming to beat 1:48.84, the national record. They emerged as the new record holder, touching the wall in 1:47.44.
Schleebs wrapped up her eligibility with the Flames this past winter, while Shallcross graduated in 2011.
Chicago Masters Swim Club offers athletes 18 and older of all abilities the opportunity to improve their swimming fitness and technique. The Club is coached by current UIC men's and women's swimming mentor Paul Moniak.
