SEATTLE – (Oct. 14) Seattle University women’s swimming dropped a 182-78 decision to Idaho in the 2017-18 season opener Saturday. Freshman Bryn Lasher won the 100 and 200 butterfly to lead the Redhawks at the Connolly Complex.
“You could tell it was our first meet of the season,” said Coach Craig Nisgor. “It was really good to see Bryn put up a top-10 time today. Overall, we had some good things, but we have a lot to clean up as we go along.”
Lasher won the 100 butterfly with a 57.61 performance. She led at the turn and touched the wall with the ninth-best time in program history.
In the 200 butterfly, Lasher logged a 2:09.64 to blow away the rest of the field. The native of Gresham, Oregon, led the whole way in her first collegiate race and won by nearly four seconds.
Madi Lydig recorded a 2:08.19 in the 200 backstroke, taking second place.
In the 200 medley relay, the team of Wong, Darian Himes, Lasher, and Treff combined for a 1:50.01 to finish second.
Seattle U heads to Loyola Marymount next weekend. It will face the Lions and Grand Canyon on Friday and Saturday in Los Angeles.
