    Christy Wicke is the only swimmer in team history and among a select few in Big Ten history to have captured four consecutive conference championships in a single event (100 butterfly). She finished her career as the most dominant 100 butterflyer in Northwestern history. Her best time in the 100 fly (54.19), set in 1995, stood for 13 years as one of Northwestern's oldest school records until it was broken by Katie Braun in 2008. She also held the school record in the 100 breast for several years after establishing her mark in 1992 and was a member of school record efforts in the 200 and 400 medley relay events.

    During her career, Wicke earned at least one All-America honor in each of her four seasons, compiling nine in total to lead Northwestern to three-straight 11th-place national finishes from 1993-95. She also was named a CSCAA Academic All-American, a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and a four-time All-Big Ten selection.

    Wicke finished her competitive swimming career at the 1996 Olympic Team Trials.
