Senior Women Lead Northwestern Over No. 8 Michigan, 168-132

EVANSTON, IL, January 28. NO. 23 Northwestern out-touched No. 8 Michigan in the first event and never looked back, upsetting the Wolverines, 168-132, at the Norris Aquatics Center on Senior Day, reports the home school.

"These seniors are a group that have been through a lot," NU Head Coach Jimmy Tierney said. "Everyone has fought back from injury and have come a long way. They are all special people and to go out like this at home is great for them."

A strong butterfly split by senior Christy Olin was enough to hold off a late Michigan charge in the 400-medley relay. Olin and junior Katie Paglini, senior Brielle Bovee and freshman Andrea Hupman's time of 3:47.64 gave Northwestern a lead they would not relinquish all day.

Coming off a strong performance against Illinois, Bovee showed no signs of tiring. She picked up a second straight Wildcat season top time and personal best in the 100-yard breaststroke with a 1:03.62 first place finish. Bovee also took first in the 200-yard breaststroke.

Olin combined with freshmen Katie Braun and Katie Welnhofer to record a 1-2-3 sweep in the 200-yard butterfly. Braun and Olin then went on to capture first and second in the 100-yard butterfly.

"This was a total team effort, top to bottom," Tierney said. "All week we talked about honoring our seniors. Against Michigan, we knew that would mean raising our level of competition."

Sophomore Leanne Dumais faced stiff competition in the 1-meter diving, taking first by only .15, but remained dominant in the 3-meter, winning the event by over 26 points.

The win is NU's third this season over a ranked opponent. The Wildcats will next be in action when they face Iowa and Ohio State at Iowa, before competing in
the Big Ten Championships.
