    INDIANAPOLIS -- Freshman Jordan Wilimovsky (Malibu, Calif./Malibu) broke his own school record in the 1,650 freestyle Saturday at the 2013 NCAA Championships, becoming the first Wildcat in program history to swim a sub 15:00 time when he touched in 14:58.80.

    Wilimovsky's time broke his own school record of 15:03.07, which he established at the Big Ten Championships meet in early March. Before that swim, the Northwestern 1,650 freestyle record had not been touched since 2004. Wilimovsky finished 24th overall in the field.

    "Jordan had a great swim today," head coach Jarod Schroeder said. "Last year it only took 15:00.00 to score at the meet so we were hoping it would have been enough. His effort was still a great step forward."

    Junior Chase Stephens (Madison, Wis./Edgewood) also competed Saturday morning, taking to the pool in the 100 freestyle. He touched in a time of 44.22 to place 43rd overall. Stephens also swam in the 50 free on Thursday at the NCAA Championships to give him two events of experience at the national meet entering his senior season.
