DELAWARE- The Wilmington College women's swimming team concluded the Corbiere-Merion Invitational at Ohio Wesleyan University on Sunday. The day consisted of one, timed-final session. The women finished the meet in third place with 525.5 points.

HOW IT HAPPENED

Session Three

  • Freshman Hannah Houston (Morrow, OH/Wilmington) captured the highest, individual finish for the Fightin' Quakers this session. Houston touched the wall fourth in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 25.73.

  • Junior Samantha Glish (Louisville, KY/Ballard) earned the next highest, individual finish for the team, finishing fifth in the 100-yard individual medley with a time of 1:06.58. Not only did this time earn Glish a high finish, but it broke the team's 100 individual medley record by two seconds. The previous record was also set by Glish earlier in the season.

  • Sophomore Ellyse Herr (Edison, OH/Mount Gilead) was the lone Fightin' Quaker to compete in the 400-yard individual medley. Herr finished seventh in the field with a time of 5:57.55.

  • Senior Haley Rowland  (Fairborn, OH/Xenia Christian) achieved 13th place in the 1650-yard freestyle with a time of 21:18.07.

  • Houston, freshman Alyssa Rogers (Springfield, OH/Kenton Ridge), senior Elyse Spraul (Cincinnati, OH/Mount Notre Dame), and Glish came together to form the team's highest placing relay of the session, the 200-yard freestyle relay. The quartet finished third with a time of 1:47.59.

  • The same foursome competed in the 400-yard medley relay earlier in the session, coming in sixth-place with a time of 4:31.06.

HEAD COACH TRIP BREEN QUOTES

  • "I always worry about the third session of a two day meet and being able to keep the energy up- but the team really stepped up and performed well. How we competed today helps to build a lot of good momentum going into our next segment of training."

  • "Haley Rowland had an incredible [1650], she continues to improve week after week, we're very excited to see where she'll be at the end of the season."

WHAT'S NEXT

  • The Fightin' Quakers head into a long segment of training over the holiday season. Their next competition is slated for 1 PM January 14th at Manchester University.
