Rebecca Matthews, the first NCAA D2 champion for Lynn University swimming, reveals how much she enjoys the American-style dryland training.

Matthews, who is from France by way of England, really set the bar high for Lynn with her pair of victories in the breaststroke events.

Original report from 200 breast

Lynn’s Rebecca Matthews crushed the NCAA D2 record in the 200-yard breast with a winning time of 2:10.77.  That swim cleared the 2:11.45 set by Drury’s Agnieszka Ostrowska for Drury a year ago.

That gave Matthews a breaststroke sweep as she already won the 100 breast in 1:01.03.

Cal Baptist’s Alena Rumiantceva hit the wall second overall in 2:13.32 with LIU Post’s Caroline Rademacher earning third tonight in 2:13.61.

Neither Queens nor Drury had a point scorer, so Queens remained in the lead, 500.5-442.5
