Tulane Splits Double Duals With Nevada and Louisiana-Monroe

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana, November 23. FACING its toughest opponent of the season, the young Tulane Green Wave women’s swimming team turned in an outstanding performance before falling to the Nevada Wolfpack, 70-52, in one half of a double-dual meet at the Reily Student Recreation Center Natatorium Sunday. The Green Wave defeated Louisiana-Monroe 95-27 in the other half of the meet to improve to 6-2 in scored events this season. Tulane is 5-1 in dual meet action this year, its first season since reviving the program after 13 years.

We swam very, very well, said Head Coach Daniella Irle. The most important thing for me was our team wasn_t intimidated by (Nevada). Nevada is a very good team and I could not be happier. For our 13 freshmen to step up against that level of team and to hold their own is amazing.

Tulane was led by the duo of Linda McEachrane and Leslie Christian, who each won two events on the day. McEachrane picked up wins in the 50 Freestyle with a time of 24.06 and in the 100 Freestyle in a time of 52.97 seconds. She also swam the anchor leg on Tulane_s 200 Medley Relay team and led off the 400 Freestyle Relay as Tulane was second in both events.

Those four swims put Linda among the best in the nation, Irle said. She can swim with anyone in the country with times like that.

While McEachrane dominated the sprint freestyle events, Leslie Christian took both distance freestyle competitions with wins in the 1,000 and 500 Freestyle races. Christian posted her all-time best times of 10:25.08 in the 1,000 and swam the 500 in 5:04.89.

Tulane’s Taylor Emerson had a pair of second-place finishes, in the 200 Butterfly and 200 Individual Medley in a breakout meet, according to Irle. In all, Green Wave swimmers took seven second-place finishes in addition to the four wins.
