HOUSTON – Seattle University women’s swimming saw five Redhawks post all-time top-10 efforts at the 2019 Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Championships Friday. Julia Gorman, Maddie Rapp, Emma McGill, Sarah Carr, and Allison Plamondon all broke into the program’s top 10 at the CRWC Natatorium.
“We had some people execute great race strategy today,” said Coach Craig Nisgor. “We talked about getting lifetime bests and we saw some of those here. People improved and used their strategies to help them get where they want to be.”
In the 200 freestyle finals, Gorman touched in 1:52.60, good for the fifth-best time in SU history. Carr swam a 1:54.27 in the same event, pulling into 10th on the all-time list.
Rapp's 56.94 in the 100 butterfly finals stands seventh in program history.
In the 100 breaststroke prelims, McGill finished in 1:06.87, the ninth-fastest showing in school history.
Plamondon notched the 10th-best 100 backstroke time in SU annals, swimming a 58.50 in the finals Friday.
Marissa Chan also established a new personal best in the 100 backstroke.
On Saturday, the meet wraps up. The 1650 freestyle, 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, and 200 butterfly, and 400 freestyle relay are slated for Saturday.
