Richmond and Davidson Women Make Moves on Day 2 of 2021 A-10 Champs

2021 ATLANTIC-10 CHAMPIONSHIPS

The A-10 Championships continue tonight, with the women’s finals running at 3:30pm and the men’s at 7pm. Richmond and Davidson had big sessions.

The Davidson women picked up where they left off after claiming both relays last night, as Siena Senn defended her 2020 500 free title with a 4:49.00, touching ahead of Richmond freshman Alexa Connors (4:50.92).

In the 50 free, the Wildcats put up a big 1-2 finish, as Abby Francis got the touch at 23.19 ahead of Shelby Stanley (23.22).

The 200 IM saw a tie for the win, as Richmond’s Margaret Purcell and Duquesne’s Emma Brinton hit the wall at 2:00.17. Just behind in third was La Salle’s Sara Rizzetto at 2:00.42, her 28.11 final 50 nearly enough to take down both Purcell and Brinton, but not quite.

Davidson would extend their perfect relay streak, capping the night with a 1:31.95 win in the 200 free relay, claiming the victory by over a full second. Francis (22.68) and Stanley (22.63) were great on the middle legs, while 200 medley anchor Martha Tripsa anchored in 22.90 and Julia Goodhead was 23.74 leading off.

Are you sure the scores don’t reflect diving? The Live Results link suggests Davidson was ahead slightly after the 50 free and then fell behind after the relay even though they won. And the diving had already concluded.
