EMORY BUILDS LEAD
Emory continues to top the field after the second day of competition
at the NCAA Division III women's swimming and diving championships being
hosted by Hope College at the Holland Aquatic Center. Through Friday's
competition Emory, which is bidding for its first team championship, has
293.5 points followed by four-time defending champion Kenyon with 215.
Rounding out the top ten are Denison 192.5, Williams 187.5, Amherst 181,
Washington, Mo. 144.5, Carleton 135, Colby 115, Johns Hopkins 106 and
Middlebury 106. A total of 47 schools have scored.
Jill Boo of Denison won the 100 yard butterfly (:56.69) for the third
year in-a-row. A Denison swimmer has now won the 100 butterfly each of
the last five years.
Calvin sophomore Becky Weima spoiled the bid of Carleton's Marie Marsman
to win the 200 freestyle for a third consecutive year. In fact, Marsman
was defeated in the 200 free by a Division III opponent for the first
time in her collegiate career. Weima was timed in 1:50.29.
Williams' junior Lindsay Payne won the 100 breaststroke for the third
time in her career (1:02.88). In the prelims she set a Division III meet
record of 1:02.75.
Washington & Jefferson freshman Kaitlyn Orstein won her second gold
capturing the 400-yard individual medley (4:27.01). She earlier won the
200 individual medley.
Aquatic Center records were established in every swimming event for
the second consecutive day, bringing to 12 the number of pool records.
Kenyon's bid for a fourth straight title in both the 200 Medley Relay
and 800 Freestyle Relay was foiled first by Williams in the medley (1:46.00)
and then by Emory in the marathon free (4:15.63)
