SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's swim and dive team was edged by UC San Diego in dual meet action on Saturday afternoon at UCSD. The Toreros fell to the Tritons by a final tally of 156.5-143.5, marking the final competition for USD before the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships in three weeks.
Despite the loss, the Toreros captured victories in six events on the day, led by seniors Jacquie Kimmel and Melissa Andruzzi, who won two individual events apiece. Kimmel touched first in the 50-yard freestyle (23.76) and 100-yard freestyle (52.65), establishing personal season-bests in both events. Meanwhile, Andruzzi took the top spot in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:05.58) and 200-yard breaststroke (2:21.45).
A handful of other Toreros turned in personal season-bests in the meet. Senior Katie Olsen swam her best time this season in the 1000 free with a 10:59.44 that put her in 5th place in the event. Freshman Morgan Scarth also established a season-best in the 100 breast, coming in at 1:14.67.
Freshman Jackie Taylor came in 4th in the 200 free with a season-best of 1:55.80. Four Toreros finished consecutively in the 200 free, led by Francesca Finucane in 2nd place (1:53.18), followed by Noonan (1:54.68), Taylor and Alexis Lee (1:57.67).
Junior Eleanor Phillips also put together a pair of personal season-bests when she took 3rd in the 200 back (2:10.93) and 4th in the 200 fly (2:06.85). Following the trend of season-bests was senior Kristyn Deckard, whose 2:12.79 in the 200 back marked her top time this season in that event.
On the relay side of things, USD's 400 free relay squad (Stone, Noonan, Finucane, Kimmel) established a team season-best with their swim of 3:29.31, which put them in 2nd place in that event on Saturday.
USD will now turn their attention to the MPSF Championships Feb. 20-23 at East Los Angeles College.
