GREELEY, Colo. – A pair of event wins by April Wood paced Colorado School of Mines women’s swimming in their season opener at Northern Colorado.

UNC won the dual 166-88, but the team score was secondary to the chance to get some early times in in what was the earliest dual meet in program history.

April Wood highlighted Mines’ individual efforts with a 2:15.75 win in the 200-fly and a 4:48.08 first-place time in the 400-IM. Mia Wood took second in the 200-free at 1:56.09, as did Sam Henney in the 200-back (2:17.54), while Kailey Said led the distance freestylers with a third-place 11:30.97 in the 1,000-free, and Mia Wood was third in the 500-free with a 5:18.61 time.

Madeleine Oakley was the runner-up in the 200-breast (2:31.02) while also coming in as Mines’ top finisher in the 100-breast with a third-place 1:09.87. Maddie Finley led Mines in the 50-free with a third-place 26.40 time. Kori Davis was fifth in the 100-free at 58.35, and Daphne Williams set a time of 1:04.23 for fourth in the 100-back.

Mines’ top 400-medley relay of Kori Davis, April Wood, Daphne Williams, and Maddie Finley touched in 4:13.60, while the 200-free relay of Mia Wood, Lydia Thompson, Finley, and Davis hit in 1:44.76.

Mines’ season continues Oct. 6 at the Denver Relays.
