Multiple Falcons had multiple victories, including Talisa Lemke, who swept the diving events for the fourth time this season. Daisy Platts collected a pair of freestyle victories and Lauren Sullivan won two backstroke events. The Orange and Brown won both relays, with Platts and Anna Eriksson swimming a leg on each winning team.

Both diving events, the 100-yard backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly, the 200-yard medley relay and butterfly, and the 500-yard freestyle all saw Falcons take the top three spots. Gillian BoalMeghan BurnardAnna ErikssonTaylor HarrisKellie HouseKylie MossetJulianna Petrak, and Michaela Ruddock each added multiple top three finishes for the Falcons.

Coach’s Quote
“I’m happy with the outcome. It’s always nice to win in front of a home crowd. We were a little rusty, but we’ve been training super hard. It was tough to come back to Bowling Green from Miami, so we had to shake some rust and cobwebs off. Davenport is a good program, and I’m happy with the form and team spirit we showed today. We will prepare for the dual against Miami tomorrow, where we get another chance to perform in front of a home crowd.”

Up Next
The Falcons will be right back in the pool tomorrow afternoon against MAC opponent Miami. The dual will begin at 1:00 p.m. On Friday, Jan. 24, BGSU will make the trip to Ypsilanti for a MAC dual against Eastern Michigan. That meet will also begin at 1:00 p.m.
