Junior Margaret Molloy brought her A-game this weekend as the College won its third consecutive Metropolitan Conference Championship. Molloy broke five school records as the Lions placed first ahead of The University of Bridgeport. She placed first and set school records in three individual events. Molloy started the weekend off with a bang as she placed first in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 4:59.75. She followed that up by breaking her old record in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:52.76. The last challenge was the 1650 freestyle and Molloy passed with a time of 17:14.13 — another school record. Her times in those victories were good enough to qualify her for the NCAA championships on March 17. Molloy also contributed in breaking two more school records in the 400 freestyle relay and the 400 medley races with times of 3:30.17 and 3:53.94.
