The Akron women hosted Eastern Michigan at home on Saturday, putting together a solid win.
On senior day, senior Jackie Pash finished on top in two events, as did sophomore Andrea Fischer. Pash first took the 200 free, going 1:51.76 to win easily. Then, in the 200 IM, she was 2:05.42 for the win there. Pash also swam the 200 back, going 2:03.50 to take fourth.
Fischer, meanwhile, swept the breaststrokes, going 1:04.81 in the 100 and 2:19.52 in the 200.
Sarah Watson was a third double-winner for the Zips. She swam two very different freestyle races, showcasing her versatility with a 23.64 in the 50 free and then a 4:59.90 in the 500 free. She was almost caught at the end of the 500 by EMU’s Alyssa Shugarman, who split a 28 on the final 50 but ultimately came up just short (5:00.16).
Casey Gavigan led the way for the EMU Eagles, winning both backstroke races. She was 54.98 in the 100, coming back from behind and almost negative-splitting her race, and then she went 1:59.25 in the 200, also coming from behind to grab that win.
The Zips also dominated the relays, going 1-2 in the 200 medley and winning the 400 free relay by almost five seconds with a 50.68 third leg from Nogaj.
