LOS ANGELES – (Oct. 20) Seattle University women’s swimming dropped a tri-meet Friday afternoon, falling to Grand Canyon, 138-57, and at Loyola Marymount, 103-99. Bryn Lasher won the 100 butterfly to lead the Redhawks at LMU.
“We had some good stuff today,” said Coach Craig Nisgor. “Bryn Lasher keeps winning. She looks good and keeps getting faster. Emily’s swim in the 400 IM was really nice. We were beat on touches a few times today, so if we had won some of those, it’s a completely different meet. We’ll get up and go again tomorrow and keep getting stronger.”
For the second straight weekend, Lasher won the 100 butterfly. On Friday, she touched in 57.47 to claim victory by over a second and record the eighth-best time in program history. Last weekend, the Gresham, Oregon, native won in 57.61 seconds.
Paige Treff finished second in the 50 freestyle, swimming a 24.75 in the event.
Jayna Van Stone took third in the 1650 freestyle with an 18:32.00 effort. Freshman Emily Bakewell notched a 4:43.38 in the 400 IM, placing third for the Redhawks. In the 500 freestyle, Madi Lydig’s time of 5:18.57 took third, with Bakewell in fourth with a 5:23.01 showing.
Seattle U competes at LMU again tomorrow, facing the Lions and GCU. The meet is slated for a 9:30 a.m. start.
