SMC Swimming: Belles look to push record over .500

Joe Meixell | Friday, November 21, 2008

Saint Mary’s will continue its 2008 season with the Patrick Woehnker Invitational, a two-day event starting today.

The Belles are coming off a solid win against conference opponent Alma College, which improved their overall record to 2-2, not including a 4th place finish in Dennis Stark relays at the beginning of the season.

Saint Mary’s has been led by stellar performances from underclassman. Sophomore Maggie Williams and freshman Eva Cavadini lead the team with seven first-place finishes apiece, and freshman Audrey Dalrymple has performed well with six first-place finishes of her own.

Last year in the Patrick Woehnker Invitational, the Belles finished in last place, but they hope to improve on that performance in this year’s meet.

The invitational is hosted by Wabash College in Crawfordsville, IN. It will begin tonight at 6:00 P.M. in the Class of 1950 Natatorium in the Allen Athletics and Recreation Center.
