Women's Swimming and Diving - Sat, Nov. 23, 2013
 

After coming off a loss at Grinnell, the women came out ready to swim fast against conference rivals Principia College tonight in Elsah, IL.

"We came into the meet with high expectations," said head coach Eric Bugby. "Since day one, we laid the ground plan for how to attack each race, how to prepare, and how to succeed.  It began to come together today."

The women's top performer was junior Maria Behrens who posted lifetime best times in the 100 yard backstroke and 100 yard freestyle.  "After a tough meet at Grinnell, where Maria added some time, she took a huge step forward today," said Bugby.  "Now we actually start our sprint training and Maria will only continue to improve."

Sophomore Nicole Frantz was the Scarlet Hawks' top freestyler on the day.  Frantz swum a season best time in the 1000 yard freestyle going out in her 1650 yard freestyle with a time of 10:50.45.  She also dropped over 20 seconds off her previous season best time in the 500 yard freestyle with a time of 5:36.84.  "It was Nicole's first mile of the season and she was aggressive from the start.  Her 500 and 1000 splits were right where they should be for this time of the year.  I'm definitely please with her progress this year and am looking forward to conference where she is gunning for the team record in the mile."

Freshmen Emily Fusilero had another great day improving on her 200 yard breaststroke and 50 yard freestyle season best times.  She cracked the 28 second barrier in the 50 and placed third overall.  "Emily is learning how to swim her 200's.  She has always been a very good middle-distance swimmer, but the strategy and energy conservation needed work.  She showed a more cerebral approach today," added Bugby.  "Our women's team is small, but they continue to impress with their practice and meet performances."

The Scarlet Hawks take on Illinois foe Knox College in a sprint meet on December 14 at Ecko Pool in Chicago at 2pm.
