After claiming the lead over the nine-team field in day one of the State University of New York at Fredonia Invite on Friday, Dec. 4, the John Carroll University women’s swimming and diving team held on over the final two days, earning first place as a team over the three day competition, finishing with 697 total points.
The Blue Streaks bested Allegheny College (614 points), Oberlin College (611), Wheeling Jesuit University (589) and the hosts, the SUNY Fredonia (387) to win.
A strong day one for JCU gave the Blue Streaks all the momentum they needed to continue their dominance over the last two days of the event.
On day two, sophomore Carly Adams earned a victory in the 200 backstroke with a time 2:07.81, while junior Margaret Zagrobelny placed sixth in the same event with a time of 2:17.40.
That first place finish by Adams, along with other solid performances throughout day two, helped JCU head into day three with victory on their minds.
The Blue Streaks did not let up on day three though, as seniors Lindsey Fano, Ann Murhpy, junior Amanda Casamatta and Adams earned first place in the 200 Medley Relay at the start of the day.
Adams then placed first in the 400 IM later in the day, and Fano earned a victory in the 200 Breast to seal the victory for JCU.
With the win, the Blue Streaks now have four victories on the season.
