Women's Swimming and Diving team defeats Siena and Sacred Heart

Looking back on this weekend’s duel meet for the Fairfield women’s swimming and diving team, the words “complete smash victory” come to mind.

With a final score of 93-47 against Siena and 99-39 over Sacred Heart, the girls had a spectacular showing.

Senior Brittany Hunter, recently honored as the MAAC Swimmer of the Week, led the team with first place finishes in all three of her individual events. A time of 9:34.00 secured her the 800m freestyle, 4:37.39 took the 400m freestyle and 2:31.24 the 200m individual medley.

Close behind Hunter were Jennifer Masi ’07, Liz Lawlor ’08 and Sarah Dent ’08 all earned two victories each.

Masi grabbed the 50m freestyle and the 100m free, while Lawlor nabbed both the 100m and 200m breaststroke and Dent came out on top for the 200m freestyle and the 200m backstroke.

Erin Carrather ’08 also took first place in the 100m backstroke.

The women’s diving team also dominated the meet, just as they have been consistently doing for the whole season.

Katharine Yee ’08 once again led the team, taking first place in both the 1-meter and the 3-meter events.

In the 1-meter, Hillary Urbancic ’10 followed Yee closely and secured the second place spot with a score less than 30 points behind. Liz Freskakis ’09 showed similarly well with a 132.23 in the 3-meter and a third place finish.

Both the men’s and the women’s teams are now finished for the fall semester, but will return to the Recplex in January.
