Women's Swimming and Diving Edged by Yale, 156-144

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Despite a valiant effort, the Brown women's swimming and diving team was edged by Yale, 156-144 on Saturday at the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center.

 

"We gave Yale a good run on both sides today. The last three meets have really shown that our programs are continuing to evolve and improve. We have a great group of student-athletes that have worked very hard all year and love to compete. We are very excited to see what our teams can do at the Ivy League Championships," said head coach Peter Brown.

The Bears got a balanced attack on Saturday as five different swimmers recorded wins after the group of Paige Gilley, Briana Borgolini, Leigh Holmes, and Kate Dillione scored the title in the 400 Yard Relay (3:47.55).

 

Dillione grabbed another victory, this time in the 200 Yard Freestyle with a mark of 1:50.34, narrowing edging Yale's Kina Zhou.  Sophomore Alexis Daswick followed up with a victory in the 100 Yard Backstroke (57.95) before Borgolini continued her strong performance with a win in the 100 Yard Breaststroke (1:04.23).

 

Katie Roach (2:20.42) nabbed a win in the 200 Yard Breaststroke while Gina Matsumoto concluded Brown's day with a triumph in the 200 Yard IM (2:06.71).

 

Brown will host an invitational next weekend in preparation for the Ivy League Championships to be held at the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center from Feb. 20-22.
