Hartford, Conn.- The Trinity College Bantam women's swimming and diving team took first place in every event but two in a 189-105 win over the visiting Roger Williams University Hawks this afternoon. Trinity, playing in its final dual meet of the year, closes 2011-12 with a 4-5 record.
Junior Shelby Friel (Weston, Mass.) won four events for the Bantams, taking first in the 50-yard backstroke, the 50-yard butterfly, the 100-yard freestyle, and swimming a leg of the 400-yard medley relay. Trinity senior captain Jenna Carroll (Stamford, Conn.) earned victories in the 1,000-yard freestyle (11:25.06) and the 500-yard freestyle (5:33.05), while rookie Alexandra Moroney (Manchester, Mass.) posted first-place finishes in the 50-yard freestyle and the 200-yard freestyle.
Sophomore Emily Johnson (Reading, Mass.) also took a pair of firsts for the Bantams, handily winning both the one- and three-meter diving events. Johnson's one-meter score of 290.69 both the pool and College-records, moving past her own Trinity mark of 269.76, and qualified her for the NCAA Division III Championships in March. Bantam sophomore Megan Chiu (Monterey Park, Calif.) broke the pool record in the 100-yard individual medley with a time of 1:03.36, although the exhibition event was not part of the team scoring.
