SEATTLE – (Jan. 6) Seattle University women’s swimming cruised to a 173-81 win over Whitworth Saturday afternoon. Madi Lydig, Paige Treff and Darian Himes both won a pair of individual races on senior day at the Connolly Complex.

“This senior class has brought a tremendous amount to the program,” said Coach Craig Nisgor. “They’ve been a part of school records and numerous top times. It’s not just what they bring to the pool or the classroom, it’s about who they are and the leadership they provide.”

Prior to the meet, the Redhawks honored their three seniors-Treff, Maddie Dickman, and Madi Lydig. Each senior took a turn in the spotlight Saturday.
