HOUSTON – Seattle University women’s swimming concluded action at the 2019 Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Championships Saturday at the CRWC Natatorium. The 400 freestyle relay recorded an all-time top-10 time at SU, along with three Redhawks in individual events.
“We really got it going the last couple sessions,” said Coach Craig Nisgor. “To be able to finish with the relay having the race they did is pretty exciting to see.”
In the final race of the meet, the 400 freestyle relay teamed up to swim a 3:27.37 Saturday. Julia Gorman, Jayna Van Stone, Sarah Carr, and Allison Plamondon combined to claim the second spot on the all-time list at Seattle U. Gorman's leadoff time of 51.69 seconds is good for fourth on the program's 100 freestyle list.
In the 100 freestyle prelims, Plamondon touched in 51.91 seconds, taking the fifth spot on the Redhawks' all-time rankings.
