Sycamores swimming and diving will face off with Rose-Hulman and Bellarmine on Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. inside the Rose-Hulman Natatorium.
The Sycamores are coming off a weekend of rest following their huge win over Xavier and Olivet-Nazarene during their first home meet on Oct. 14.
This meet was a turnaround for ISU as they fell by a large margin to Xavier only two weeks prior. Indiana State came out quick right from the start earning multiple personal bests and even setting a couple of school records throughout the day.
Cierra Campbell and Elisabeth Peskin absolutely dominated the pool. Campbell placed first with a 10:44.08 and Peskin swam strong as well.
Martina Marks then finished first in the 200 freestyle with a 1:54.99, then Kendall Hansen rattled off a win and an ISU school record in the 100 yard backstroke with a 57.67.
Jacquie Price pulled away with a first place finish in the 200 butterfly with a 2:08.23, followed by Alex Malmborg finishing second in the 50 freestyle.
Blanca Saez-Illobre posted a good win in the 200 breastroke with a 2:22.20 and later another first place finish in the 200 IM.
Laura Fulton set two new school records in both the one meter and three meter dives while Mckenzie Plummer competed in the three meter dive for the first time in her career.
Indiana State will now travel up the road to take on Rose-Hulman and Bellarmine inside the Rose-Hulman Natatorium at 6 p.m.
The Sycamores defeated Rose-Hulman during the 2016 season and the Fightin’ Engineers went on to finish fifth at the CCIW Championships.
Rose also sent one student-athlete to the NCAA D-III Championships and placed seventh and eighth place in respective events.
The Bellarmine Knights have only competed in one meet so far this season after finishing eighth at the 2016-2017 GLVC swimming and diving championships.
