PUGET SOUND, Wash. — Seattle U women’s swimming dominated its season opener on Saturday taking first-overall at the Logger Relays. The Redhawks, which won seven of nine events, amassed 201 points on the day, 55 points better than the next closest squad.
“It was a great start to the season and I thought the team came together really well,” said head coach Craig Nisgor. “It was the first meet out, but they trained hard, looked good and as a result made somethings happen. We had some great performances that included personal-bests and school records so I’m really happy this happened so early.”
Despite a second-place finish in the 1000-yard Freestyle, Alexa Hoeper notched a time of 10:30.06, good for fifth-best in school-history. Freshman Danika Himes meanwhile went 1:04.81, good for fifth-best in program-history as she led off the 3x100-yard Breaststroke.
The 3x100 Butterfly Relay team of Lasher, Maddie Rapp, Isabella Guadimos took top-billing as they finished with a time of 2:45.77. Tessa Oliver, Sherlyn Devadason and Caitlin Caruso meanwhile touched second at 3:00.84.
Plamondon, Dixon, Lasher and Margaux Thompson went 1:38.37 as they teamed up to win the 200-yard Freestyle Relay, while Julia Gorman, Devadason, Chan and Jennifer Wong checked in at fourth with a time of 1:41.86.
Seattle U also claimed full points in the 3x100 Breaststroke Relay and 3x100 Medley Relay as it went 3:24.35 and 3:02.44, respectively. In the 3x200 Freestyle and 400 Freestyle Relay events, the Redhawks finished second notching times of 5:53.60 and 3:36.25 respectively.
Seattle U will return to action Friday, Oct. 18 when it hosts Loyola Marymount and Western Athletic Conference foe, Grand Canyon, at the Redhawk Center.
