BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Competing for the third straight weekend at the John S. Hillman Memorial Aquatics Center, Jayssie Haynes won three individual events and was a part of CSU Bakersfield’s winning relay team to lead the women’s swimming and diving team to a 185-109 victory over Pepperdine on Friday.

The Roadrunners won 13 of the 16 events contested this afternoon to earn the dominating victory in the squad’s second dual of the season.

“Today was a fun day,” said CSUB Director of Swimming Chris Hansen.  “We got to swim some off events and some fun events.  We have nothing now until UNLV at the end of the month, which will allow us to have a mini three-week training camp and then rest for a few days.  The UNLV Invite is big for Autumn (D’Arcy) and Jayssie to see what we have to do to get them to NCAAs.”

Haynes won the 200-yard butterfly (2:07.30), the 500 freestyle (5:03.75) and the 200 individual medley (2:10.31).  The junior also teamed up with Tatum Collatz, Autumn D’Arcy and Abigail Abshire to win the 400 medley relay (3:53.70).

Autumn D’Arcy, the reigning Western Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week, continued an impressive freshman campaign on Friday, winning the 200 free in 1:53.88 and the 200 backstroke in 2:08.43.  Her sister Summer D’Arcy also touched the wall in first in the 200 breaststroke (2:28.33).

Junior Maddie Cosgrove won a pair of events in the dual against the Waves, completing the 100 free in 52.48 and 100 fly in 58.86.  Senior Sabrina Zavala also aided the effort with her first victory of the season.  Zavala won the 1,000 free in 10:30.04.

A trio of freshmen also picked up victories on the day.  Tabea Mose earned her first career victory in the 100 back (58.45) as did Jocelyn McLaughlin in 1-meter diving (222.60).  Abshire finished first in the 50 free in 24.44.

The Roadrunners will compete against next weekend when the divers head to USC for the Trojan Diving Invite.
