Sweet Briar swimming fans and friends turned out Saturday afternoon to honor seniors Claire Zak and Sarah Cahoone for their wonderful SBC careers. Following the ceremony, Sweet Briar took on the Wasps from Emory & Henry College. The Vixens fell in that competition by a score of 120-62. In other action at Prothro Natatorium, Hampden-Sydney defeated the Emory & Henry men's team 139-39.
The Vixens had many strong individual moments in the meet. First-year Theresa Carriveau finished second in the 800 freestyle with a time of 11:51.19. Fellow first-year Lauren Graham collected a pair of top three finishes, placing second in the 50 freestyle (31.57) and third in the 100 freestyle (1:18.32).
In the most exciting finish of the day, Sarah Ahson won the 100 backstroke (1:17.28) just edged Emory & Henry's Sarah Helfert (1:17.58).
