WESTERN 149, TIPTON 26
Summer Brown set a new school record in the 100 breaststroke, topping the field in 1:08.51 to set a new mark, which was previously owned by Rae Andrews (2008). The Vanderbilt recruit now owns four school records at Western.
“She’s really swimming strong right now and has a lot of fire in what she’s doing,” Western coach Brad Bennett said of Brown. “It’s exciting to see her times as fast as they are this early in the season. With that, she’s showing exceptional team leadership as well. She is really bent on leading the girls and making the team the best it can be, not just by what she’s going to do, but also by helping everyone else be their best. That’s just another aspect she’s excelling in this year.”
Brown also won the 200 freestyle in 1:54.25, and teamed with Sara Metcalf, Ally Purvis and Claire Casner to win the 200 free relay in 1:53.29.
Casner was tops in the 100 fly in 1:07.06, and teamed with Brittany Lake, Danielle Pate and Anna Constable to win the 400 free relay in 4:05.65.
Lake won the 200 individual medley in 2:30.09, Pate was tops in the 100 free in 1:01.70 and Constable bested the field in the 500 free in 6:14.30.
Tori Riggleman sped to victory in the 50 free in :30.40 after teaming with Metcalf, Lilly Armour and Sabrina Roberts to win the 200 medley relay in 2:20.35.
Kelsey Quinn added a victory in the 100 back (1:15.70), and Annie Boytim rounded out the Panthers’ winners in the diving program (176.90).
“I like what we’re doing,” Bennett said. “We were solid. My winners, most all of them had another one of our girls on their tail. … As a team, we’re really swimming strong right now.”
