SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- The Vixen Swimming team fell to ODAC-rival Washington and Lee on Friday evening by a score of 114-78 at Prothro Natatorium.
The Generals came out flying in the first race of the evening. In the 200m Medley relay, W&L set a new pool record by just over two seconds with a time of 2:06.61. In that same relay, first-year Stephanie Foster (Columbia, Md. / Long Reach) beat the previous pool record for the 50m Backstroke, during her opening leg of the race. Just two events later, Sarah Schaffer (Wheaton, Ill. / Wheaton Warrenville South) broke the venue record of 2:13.57 with her own time of 2:12.73. The Generals ended the meet the way they began it, setting a pool record in the 400m Freestyle Relay with a time of 2:12.73
The Vixens received strong swims from their upperclasswomen. Junior Marian Huber (Newport News, Va. / Menchville) finished the 200m Breaststroke with a time of 3:01.00. Senior Dani Humphrey (Vienna, Va. / James Madison) also performed well. Competing in the 100m Freestyle, Humphrey touched the wall in 1:05.33.
"It's always great to swim in a meet like the one we were in tonight," noted Head Coach Jason Gallaher. "We swam against a great team, and they were very impressive. We had some good swims, and it was a good opportunity for us to see where we are in several events."
Sweet Briar jumps back into action tomorrow in a home meet beginning at 12:00 p.m. The Vixens will take on Guilford College and Emory & Henry College at the meet at Prothro Natatorium.
