TOLEDO, Ohio, October 22. THE University of Michigan women's swimming and diving team earned its first dual-meet win of the season, taking first place in 10 of the meet's 16 events in a 182.5-112.5 win at Toledo on Friday (Oct. 22) at the UT Student Recreation Center Pool.
The Wolverines were in control from the very beginning, starting with the continued surge from sophomore Adrienne Bicek (Downers Grove, Ill./Downers Grove North) in the 1,000-yard freestyle. She won the race in 10 minutes flat, finishing close to eight seconds faster than the next swimmer to touch the wall and 13 seconds faster than Jacy Dyer, last season's MAC Swimmer of the Year.
Senior Natasha Moodie (Miramar, Fla./Miramar) and junior Caitlin Dauw (St. Charles, Ill./St. Charles East) each won multiple events against the Rockets. Moodie won the 50- and 100-yard freestyles, while Dauw took first in both butterfly races. They also swam on both relay teams.
Other Wolverines that scored event wins of their own were junior Liz Johnson (Milford, Mich./Milford) in the 100-yard backstroke (57.09), sophomore Mattie Kukors (Auburn, Wash./Mountainview) in the 200-yard backstroke (2:01.83) and junior Kristyne Cole (Ann Arbor, Mich./Pioneer) in the 500-yard freestyle (4:58.84).
Over in the diving well, junior Amanda Lohman (Pittsburgh, Pa./Upper St. Clair) won the three-meter diving competition (293.48) and had the highest score on the one-meter board (307.13), despite being exhibitioned.
The Wolverines remain out on the road next weekend, as they visit Bloomington, Ind., for a two-day double-dual meet with Big Ten rival Indiana and Texas. The two sessions on Friday (Oct. 29) begin at noon and 6 p.m., with action concluding on Saturday (Oct. 30) at 10 a.m.
