Women's Swimming Falls to Dickinson in Heartbreaker, 105-100
CARLISLE, Pa. - For the second week in a row, the Swarthmore women's swim team battled valiantly before falling by the slimmest of margins, taking a 105-100 loss to the Dickinson Red Devils on Saturday in the team's final tune-up before Conference Championships.
The Garnet's "A" 400 medley relay team started things off on the right foot, as seniors Rosalie Lawrence (pictured) and Naomi Glassman teamed up with sophomores Margaret Regan and Erin Lowe for a first-place finish (4:13.42). After getting swept out of the 1000 freestyle, freshman Supriya Davis put Swarthmore back in the win column with a fast 200 freestyle (1:56.97).
Freshman Kate Wiseman followed her teammate's success with a win in her signature 50 freestyle (24.91), and later took the 100 (54.15). Lowe (2:16.97) and Glassman (2:18.65) touched 1-2 in the 200 butterfly, and Regan won the 200 breaststroke (2:32.01). Davis earned a close second in the 500 freestyle (5:17.04), and sophomore Rebecca Teng took second in both the 200 IM (2:18.92) and the 200 backstroke (2:19.19).
Swarthmore finished strong with a win in the 400 freestyle relay (Wiseman, Teng, Glassman, Davis; 3:43.06), outtouching the Dickinson "A" team by 3-10ths of a second.
Centennial Conference Championships will take place at Gettysburg on February 17-19.
