Hollins Wins Twice in First Home Meet

Roanoke, VA - Hollins University Swimming vs Gallaudet and Greensboro, October 27, 2012


Saturday marked the first home meet of the season for a young Hollins team eager to get the home part of their schedule started.  Gallaudet University and Greensboro College were the opponents for Hollins first tri-meet of the year.

Hollins won five of the 11 events en route to besting both of their visitors.  Hollins defeated Gallaudet 62-33 and downed Greensboro by the slimmest of margins, 48-47.

Maggie Dwyer (Norwich, VT) won the first of her three event wins by taking the 1000 Freestyle, the first individual event of the meet.  Later during the afternoon, Dwyer picked up first place points in the 200 Freestyle and the 500 Freestyle.  Claire Webber (Blauvelt, NY) won the 200 Individual Medley and then wrapped up the meet with a win in the 100 Breaststroke while picking up a second place finish in the 100 Butterfly.  Meg O'Brien (Chattanooga, TN) finished second in the 100 Backstroke and third in the 1000 Freestyle.  Senior Sage Otto (Hampton, VA) recorded two seconds, 50 and 100 Freestyle, and a third, 100 Backstroke.  Audrey James (Fremont, CA) came in second in the 200 Freestyle and the 500 Freestyle and picked up third place points in the 100 Freestyle.

Hollins will look to build on their pair of victories when they travel to Ferrum on Thursday night.  Their meet with the Panthers will begin at 6:30pm.
