NCAA Div 1 Women: University of Richmond Wins Home Opener

RICHMOND, Virg., November 2. SOPHOMORE Brooke Boncher (West Newbury, Mass.) broke the school record in the 200 fly by three seconds with a time of 2:02.80, to lead the University of Richmond women's swimming team past Georgia Southern 172-94, today, at the Robins Center Natatorium. The win improves the Spiders record to 1-1, while GSU falls to 1-1 on the season.

Freshman Michelle Coombs (Newburg, N.Y.) was a tri-winner as she took first place in the 200 backstroke (2:06.59), the 200 freestyle (1:53.33), and contributed in the 200 medley relay (1:51.22) to open the afternoon's wins.

The Spiders won all but one event, 200 freestyle relay, and had strong contributions from the whole roster, including six first-place finishes by freshmen.

Other multi-finishers were sophomores Boncher, who won both the 100 and 200 butterflies with her time in the 100 butterfly as a NCAA "B" qualifying time and Laura MacHaffie (Concord, Mass.) who took both the one and three meter diving crowns with 204.90 and 225.38 marks, respectively.
