On her previous five attempts Sarah had achieved times, in seconds, of 86, 94, 97, 88 and 96, for swimming 50 meters. After her sixth try she brought her median time down to 92 seconds. What was her time, in seconds, for her sixth attempt?

Times: 86, 88, 94, 96, 97

94 is the median

92*2=184

184-94=90

90 is her sixth time.
