WILMINGTON, Ohio - The Wilmington College women's swimming team won its second consecutive dual meet on Saturday, taking care of Manchester University 138-87 at the WC Natatorium on Saturday afternoon.

A trio of Fightin' Quakers – Emma Thompson, Audrey Bibb and Sierra Szuhay – won two individual events with one of them being a freestyle. Thompson won both the 200-meter backstroke (3:11.56) and 800-meter freestyle (10:42.14) by over 90 seconds while Szuhay claimed victories in the 400-meter freestyle (5:25.23) and the 200-meter IM (2:47.38). Bibb touched the wall in 1:09.52 in the 100-meter freestyle and 1:16.55 in the 100-meter backstroke.

Anna Endsley was the other Quaker to win an individual event, swimming a time of 30.85 seconds in the 50-meter freestyle. That wasn't Endsley's only victory on the day as she teamed up with Bibb, Thompson and Ashley Carlson to win the 200-meter freestyle relay (2:06.91). In the other relay, the 200-medley relay, Szuhay and Bibb swum with Maryn Herring and Symone Daniels to win the event with a mark of 2:19.12.

"We were grateful for another opportunity to race today," Head Coach Trip Breen said. "The team keeps taking steps in the right direction. While we have a long way to go, I am happy with the progress we are making."

Wilmington heads to the Corbiere-Merion Invitational hosted by Ohio Wesleyan University on Nov. 20-21.
