Rival Bests Hollins

Lynchburg, VA - Hollins University Swimming at Sweet Briar vs College, December 1, 2012


The Hollins University swim team was back in ODAC action on Saturday afternoon.  A trip to face rival Sweet Briar College was on the schedule for a Hollins team that hadn't competed since a home win against Davis and Elkins back on November 12th.  Hollins entered the pool against the Vixens looking to even their ODAC mark at 1-1.

Having not competed in the pool in over two weeks, Hollins shoed a little rust as the won just two of the 14 events against their rivals.  First-year swimmer Claire Webber (Blauvelt, NY) set a pair of Hollins records en route to winning two individual events.  Webber won the 100 meter Breaststroke and then came back later in the meet to win the 100 Freestyle.  Claire's record setting split in the 200 Medley Relay helped Hollins to pick up second place points.  Audrey James (Fremont, CA), Meg O'Brien (Chattanooga, TN) and Sage Otto (Hampton, VA) rounded out the Hollins 200 Medley team.  O'Brien added a trio of second place finishes as she finished runner up in the 200 Butterfly, the 100 Butterfly and the 400 Individual Medley.  James picked up a second in the 400 Freestyle and a third in the 50 Freestyle.

Hollins will step up their level of competition with a trip to VMI on Tuesday night.  The meet with the DI Keydets is scheduled to begin at 7:00pm and will include diving events for first time this season.
