SMC Swimming: Belles face Alma in MIAA competition

Joe Meixell | Friday, November 7, 2008

Saint Mary’s will look to win its first conference meet Saturday as they take on Alma in Alma, Mich. The Belles come into the competition after splitting their last meet, defeating the Illinois Institute of Technology, but losing to the host University of Chicago.

The Belles are led by sophomore Maggie Williams, who so far this season has recorded four first-place finishes, which include victories in the 100 and 200 yard backstroke, the 200 yard freestyle relay, and the 200 yard medley relay. Also performing well so far for the Belles is freshman Audrey Dalrymple, who has achieved first-place finishes in the 100 yard breaststroke, the 200 yard individual medley and the 200 yard medley relay.

The Scots, who are also 0-1 in the conference, are led by sophomore diver Brianna Harfman, who won both the 1m and 3m diving competitions in their last meet, and by sophomore Jordan Bryde, who won the 100 yard backstroke in Alma’s first competition of the year. The meet will take place Saturday at 1:00 PM.
