The Lead:  Junior Katie Conners tied the school’s all-time record in the 50-yard freestyle, while the 400-yard medley relay team set a record with a mark of 3:57.86, as the Holy Cross women’s swimming and diving team continued its action at the second day of competition at the Patriot League Championship on Thursday.
