DU swims at Kenyon Last Chance

Cari Martin improved her B cut times in both backstroke events.
Cari Martin improved her B cut times in both backstroke events.

The Denison women's swimmers took to the pool for the final time before next month's NCAA Division III Championship at the annual Kenyon College Last Chance meet.  There were no team scores tabulated but the Big Red had a good day as they posted a number of time improvements and a few new NCAA provisional cuts.

Senior Cari Martin turned in a few big performances in the backstroke events.  In the 100 backstroke she won the event and posted an improved NCAA 'B' cut time of 56.92.  She would return a few hours later and swim even better in the 100 back time trial, improving her time to 56.62.  Her teammate, Maddie Armitage also had a good 100 back time trial. Her time of 57.39 marked her first NCAA provisional qualifying time of the season.

In the 200 back, Martin won again and improved her 'B' cut time by nearly two seconds, touching in 2:03.82.

In the 100 butterfly, Sarah Yu improved her 'B' time to 56.26 while placing second.  One week removed from winning her first North Coast Athletic Conference championship in the 200 breaststroke, Marissa Bednarek improved her provisional times in both breaststroke events on Saturday in Gambier.  She won the 100 breast in 1:05.80, upping her time by .08.  In the 200 breast she nearly posted an 'A' cut with her time of 2:18.76.

Sophomore Molly Willingham improved her 'B' times in the 200 free (1:51.21) and the 100 free (51.45).  Also notching a 'B' cut in the 100 free was Armitage who clocked in a 52.06 seconds.

In the 200 backstroke time trials, Libby Dalziel posted a strong 'B' cut with a time of 2:01.68.  Rounding out the winners for DU was Tully Bradford in the 200 free (1:52.71), Meghan Bagley in the 400 IM (4:31.26), and Elizabeth Flaherty in the 500 free (5:02.06).

The Denison divers will return to action on March 1-2 at the NCAA Division III Diving Regional in Grand Rapids, Mich.  The swimmers will begin its push for the NCAA Division III Championship on March 20-23 in Shenandoah, Texas.
