Final Results

On the road at Williamsburg for a 6 team invitational Monday night. VSU took 2nd place in the meeting with Williamsburg, Keokuk, Grinnell, Centerville, and Oskaloosa - just 25 points behind Williamsburg, but 125 points ahead of 3rd place Grinnell.

Williamsburg is a very competitive team for us - we're pretty evenly matched in school and team size, so it's always a challenge meeting up with them. Last night, they showed their depth. VSU one 10 of the 11 events, including all three relays. But Williamsburg was never far behind, and usually posted multiple swimmers in scoring positions. We were short 4 of our varsity swimmers due to illness - and we really missed their presence. We had to leave some slots open in the more challenging events that our newcomers aren't ready to take on quite yet. In those events, Williamsburg outscored us beyond what we could make up for in other events. They fought hard for the win last night - we'll just have to come back healthy when we rematch in October.

Senior captains Geordyn Webster and Clarissa Carolan continue to be solid performers for us - each winning their individual and relay events with room to spare. Justyce Dominick also continued to dominate the distance events - handily winning both the 200 and 500 Free by eight and seven seconds respectively. Molly Clark swam her fastest 100 Free of the season, cutting over a second off her previous best and touching out the second place swimmer by .17 seconds to take first place in a competitive field. Lauren Moore added second place points in the 100 Backstroke again, the event in which her teammate Clarissa Carolan took first place. And Maren Redlinger added speed to the 50 Freestyle, an event that saw her cut more than half a second, and aided two relays to first place finishes.

The girls swam a very competitive meet, lots of times were improved across the board. Every single swim scored points last night - that's an impressive feat in a 6-team invitational. VSU heads to Linn-Mar for a double dual with Tipton on Saturday Sept 19.
