Bolstered by its freshmen and sophomore class, the Northeastern swimming and diving team returned to Boston with two victories in hand. The Huskies downed host LIU Brooklyn 247-55 and outscored Wagner 178.5-136.5. Of the 347.5 total individual points scored by Northeastern during the two-day meet, underclassmen were responsible for 154.5 in addition to eight contributors on 25 relay finishes.
Miriam Schaefer led all Husky competitors with 44 individual points, notching four first place finishes and two second place finishes. Rachel Smith and Mackenzie Hagist also tallied their first individual points this season, Smith placing fifth against both teams in the 200 freestyle and Hagist claiming third on both diving boards. With the addition of Smith and Hagist to the score sheet, all 29 athletes on the 2016-17 roster have tallied points this season for Northeastern.
Major contributors from the upperclassmen included captain Delaney Lanker who won the 200 butterfly in 2:08.77 and Kerry Treusdell who took first in the 200 freestyle, clocking 1:56.32. Lanker tallied 21 individual points while Treusdell raked in 38 points in the meet.
Next weekend, Northeastern will divide and conquer as the diving squad travels to James Madison for the Dukes’ diving invitational. The swimmers will remain close to home, competing in a non-scored meet at Harvard. The Huskies finish their dual meet season 8-3 overall and 2-2 in the CAA.
