An impressive weekend was ahead of the John Carroll University swimming and diving team in its trip to Lexington, Kentucky on Saturday, Dec. 6. The Transylvania Invitational proved rewarding, as the women secured a second place finish.
The opening event, the 200 medley relay, set up the Blue Streaks for a record-setting performance. The team of freshmen Carly Adams and Anne Crowley, junior Lindsey Fano and senior Tori Watson finished with a time of 1:48.30 – a full two seconds ahead of the rest of the field. This finish set a school record for the second time this year after the quartet had a time of 1:48.55 earlier in the season.
Fano went on to nab two more important spots in the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke. A 2:13.36 finish in the 200 IM was good for second place in the event, with Adams scoring first at 2:11.03.
“Everybody was improving, reaching personal bests and listening to [head] coach [Mark Fino]. But there is still a lot of work to be done this season,” said Fano.
Fano went on to win the 100 breast at 1:06.78 and was a part of the 800 free relay winning squad to finish the night with a time of 8:07.79.
