The 2013-14 women’s swimming & diving season got underway this afternoon as the Big Red hosted Division I Toledo at the Trumbull Aquatics Center.  Despite some impressive performances by a number of Denison newcomers, the Rockets prevailed 264-150.

First-year freestyler Carolyn Kane made her presence known by winning three events on the day.  She took first in the 50 free in 24.04.  She edged teammate, Ashley Yearwood in the 100 free with a time of 52.44 and she took first in the 200 free, touching in 1:56.90.

Another rookie, Campbell Costley, won the 500 free in 5:05.67 and won an earlier 200 freestyle event with a time of 1:54.48.  Costley also took second in the 1000 freestyle in 10:36.34.

Sophomore Krysta Garbarino posted second-place finishes in the 200 butterfly (2:09.71), the 100 fly (59.21), and the 50 fly (27.22).  Senior Natalie Lugg finished second in the 200 breaststroke in 2:28.78.  She was third in the 100 breaststroke in 1:07.71 and was the runner-up in the 50-yard breaststroke, touching in 31.00.

In diving action, first-year Morgan Christman finished fourth in the 3-meter and 1-meter boards.  In the 3-meter she totaled a score of 155.48 in her six dives.  In the 1-meter competition she posted a score of 180.68.  Classmate, Carrie Bookheimer followed in fifth-place in both events.

Denison will return to action next Saturday (Oct. 19) when the swimmers compete at the Kenyon Relays.  The divers will stay home and compete at Denison Diving Relays beginning at noon.  The Denison Sports Network will provide live video coverage of the diving from the Trumbull Aquatics Center.
