INDIANAPOLIS (March 17) – Blaise Wittenauer-Lee of Seattle University women’s swimming finished 32nd in the 100 breaststroke at the NCAA Championships Friday. She swam a 1:00.71 in her heat.
“She had a solid swim,” said Coach Craig Nisgor. “Good start, but just a few things to clean up in the back half. She’s in the right mindset and she’ll have one more shot at it tomorrow.”
The senior was just .19 seconds off her WAC-record time of 1:00.52, which she set at last month’s WAC Championships. Her Friday effort was the second-fastest time Wittenauer-Lee has posted in the race in her SU career.
Wittenauer-Lee will close action at the meet on Saturday. She’ll compete in the 200 breaststroke prelims, looking to qualify for the finals held later in the day.
