Tulane Swims To Pair Of Wins At North Texas

DENTON, Texas, November 16. THE Tulane University women's swim team continued its hot start to the resurgent program, defeating Arkansas-Little Rock, 82-12, and host North Texas, 73-38, Saturday afternoon at the North Texas Student Recreation Center.

The Green Wave, fielding a program for the first time since the 1989-90 season, won nine of the 11 events they participated in, including the 1650 free, 400 medley relay and 200 free relay. With the sweep of the UNT and UALR, Tulane improves to 5-1 overall on the year.

"We swam extremely well for the second consecutive meet," head coach Daniella Irle. "Our mile was awesome, our distance swimmers were on the ball, and our 400 individual medley was very good. This team may be comprised of an entire roster that has zero college experience, but they have shown the maturity of a much more veteran team. I can't say how pleased I am with each and every swimmer on this team."

Tulane was led by Linda McEachrane and Monica Jones as the freshman duo combined to help the Green Wave win five events. McEachrane won individual crowns in the 50 and 100 free with times of 24.61 and 54.43, respectively. Jones, meanwhile, won the 200 breast in 2:27.62 and the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:12.39, while teaming with McEachrane, Amanda Williams and Taylor Emerson to win the 400 medley relay in 4:04.31.

Other individual winners were Williams, Leslie Christian, and Nicole Taheri, while Taheri, Elizabeth Carey, Megan Underwood, Katie McGuire joined forces to win the 400 free relay in 1:42.71. Williams claimed the 400 individual medley in 4:39.17, Christian emerged victorious in the 500 free with a time of 5:12.00, and Taheri won the 1650 free in 17:36.90.

Tulane def. North Texas 73-38
