NORFOLK, Va. — Ten event wins and a number of improved performances marked the Davidson swimming and diving teams’ visit to Old Dominion Saturday.
While the Monarchs posted the team wins, Davidson coach John Young was encouraged by what he saw from the Wildcats.
“We’d prefer the impact on our record be different, but I really felt good about the racing today,” he said. “A number of folks were on the wrong side of touch finishes, but with season-best swims. We’ll always take season-best swims.”
For the Davidson women, Siena Senn continued her strong season with wins in the 200- and 500-yard freestyles. Senn swam the 200 in 1:53.99 and the 500 in 5:04.25. Senior Isabella McElrath won the 100 butterfly (59.25), and Sarah Helen Shepherd won the 200 individual medley in 2:06.29, just ahead of teammate Abby Francis (2:06.71).
“Siena stayed hot, racing away in the 200 and 500 and staking the freestyle relay to a lead as its opening leg,” said Young. “Sarah Helen again swam well. Julia Goodhead and Abby continue to hold down their races. Abby was solid in her 200 IM debut, following Sarah Helen in a powerful 1-2 finish.”
Daniel Valmassei swept the diving events to lead the Davidson men, posting 307.72 points in the 3-meter competition and 292.65 points in the 1-meter.
Crossan Cooper led a 1-2-3 Davidson finish in the 1,000 free (9:55.85), as Jared Herr and Tommy Cromie followed, and Walter Dauksher won the 200 free in 1:41.90. Kevin Andrews and Owen Corkery swam out front in the backstroke events. Andrews won the 100 in 51.87, and Corkery took the 200 in 1:53.27.
“Deep team performances in the 1,000, the 200, and the 100 backstroke set the tone early,” said Young. “And the men did a great job nullifying ODU’s butterflier by taking the scoring spots behind him in both the 100 and 200. Owen’s 200 backstroke was again impressive; he does a remarkable job closing that race.”
Multiple Wildcats will compete in the TYR Pro Series event next weekend in Greensboro.
