Hosting the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles, the Miami (FL) women cruised to a big win on Friday.

The meet was quick, with no 100’s of stroke. Miami was out to a quick start, winning the 400 medley relay (3:49.21) and then taking the next two individual events, the 1000 free and 200 free.

Claire McGinnis controlled the distance free races for Miami, first going 10:35.05 in the 1000 free and then 5:06.24 in the 500 free. The 200 free went to Miami’s Sydney Knapp, who was 1:51.82 to win by a whopping six-plus seconds. Knapp would return to claim the 100 free, going 52.11 there.

Miami wouldn’t be given the entire freestyle sweep, though, as FGCU’s Wiktoria Czarnecka foiled things with a tie for the 50 free win. She, along with Miami’s Zorry Mason, hit the wall in matching 23.95s. Later, Mason would win the 200 back, going 2:03.44.

Miami freshmen Isabel Traba and Andrea Todorovic chipped in one win, each. Traba was 2:01.43 to claim the 200 fly, and Todorovic was 2:06.81 to win the 200 IM.

For FGCU, there was one true win, a 2:18.21 for Petra Halmai in the 200 breast. The Hurricanes finished things off with a win in the 200 free relay (1:36.88) by over a full second and won the meet.
