BRUNWSICK, Maine - The Amherst women’s swimming and diving team continued to shine on day two of the 2013 NESCAC Championships, breaking several more records while vaulting into the top slot on the leader board for the first time in program history with 1355.5 points.
Relinquishing its day one lead, 12-time conference champion Williams now sits in second with 1329.5 points, followed by Middlebury (760.5), Tufts (733.5) and Bates (606) in the top five. Bowdoin currently ranks sixth (513), with Conn. College (506.5), Wesleyan (465.5) and Hamilton (434) in seventh, eighth and ninth, respectively, while Colby (333) and Trinity (310) round out the field of 11.
The Jeff relay teams once again took center stage, adding two more steller performances after yesterday’s victories in the 200 FR and 400 MR. Maddy Sprung-Keyser ’13, Emily Hyde ’16, Nicole Heise ’13 and Katie Vincett ’13 set a new meet and program record in the 200 medley with an NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 1:44.54, while Hyde, Ashleigh Stoddart ’15, Lulu Belak ’14 and Steph Ternullo ’15 posted a ‘B’ cut time of 7:34.89 as the runners-up in the 800 freestyle relay.
Shaving over four seconds off her prelim time, Hyde set the tone for Amherst in the 400 IM, touching in with a school record ‘A’ cut time of 4:24.19. Annie Glancy ’13 also put forth a strong showing, placing fourth (4:30.53). Sarah Conklin ’16 made sure the records continued to fall in the 100 fly, winning with a program-best time of 55:66, while Heise took fourth with a ‘B’ cut worthy time of 57.16.
Charlotte Chudy ’16, Audrey Ingerson ’14 and Anna Pietrantonio ’14 made sure Amherst was well represented in the 1000 free, finishing first (10:18.52), third (10:21.59) and fifth (10:27.66), respectively. Ternullo, Stoddart and Belak each surpassed the ‘B’ cut in the 200 free, finishing second, third and fifth, while four Amherst swimmers led by Aline Kim ’15 (3rd - 57.60) placed in the top eight of the 100 back.
