Jan. 18, 2010
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Seven different Oregon State swimmers recorded a dual win as the Beavers defeat the Pioneers of Lewis & Clark College 133-67 Monday at Stevens Natatorium.
'We had a really good meet today,' Oregon State swimming head coach Larry Liebowitz said following the meet. 'With a meet like this it is a chance to try some different things that you can't normally try. We had some people try different events and some people try different ways of swimming their races. Overall they did very well today.'
Sophomore Anna Heller recorded her first dual win of her career in the 200-yard freestyle with a career best of 1:56.13.
'Hailey Bambusch did really well today,' Liebowitz said. 'I hadn't seen her perform like that, and I was really excited about her.'
Sophomore Jenni Dole recorded her sixth career dual win and third this season in the 200-yard individual medley. It was her first time swimming in the event and she finished with a time of 2:12.17.
'It was really nice to have a meet at home, I like it a lot,' Dole said. 'We only have two meets at home this year, but it's so much nicer than traveling and being exhausted when you have to race in the morning. It was nice to have my parents and grandparents here supporting us.'
Senior Nicole Pressprich swam, for the first time this season, the 100-yard butterfly and recorded a winning time of 1:00.62 for her fourth career dual win. It was also her career best in the event at Oregon State.
Senor Ashley Kerekanich recorded her first dual win of the season in to 50-yard freestyle with a time of 24.57.
The Beavers (4-6 overall) return to the pool in their final home meet of the season on Senior Day this Friday, Jan. 22 as they take on Seattle University in the Stevens Natatorium starting at 4 p.m.
