Women’s Swimming Wins Double Dual Against Division II Assumption and Bridgeport on Senior Day


NEW LONDON, Conn. – Senior captains Olivia Haskell (Norwalk, Conn.) and Maeve Wilber (New Marlborough, Mass.) factored into four first-place finishes in their final home meet as collegians in leading the Connecticut College women's swimming team to a clean sweep of Assumption and Bridgeport on Saturday afternoon at Lott Natatorium. The Camels won the double dual against the Division II opponents by defeating Bridgeport, 172-84.50, and Assumption by a 183-78 score. 

Haskell anchored two victorious relays at the beginning and end of the meet, beginning with the 200-yard medley relay which clocked in at 1:49.00. The group also included Wilber, sophomore Brooklynn Hayes (Granville, Mass.) and freshman Vaughn Ammon (Franklin, Tenn.). She later teamed up with sophomore Kenzie Healy (Westport, Conn.), freshman Micaela O'Malley (Ridgefield, Conn.) and Ammon to comprise the 200 free relay which hit the wall in 1:40.33.

In addition to swimming with Haskell on the medley relay, Wilber swept the backstroke events by winning the 100 in 58.77 seconds and the 200 in 2:08.61. The senior was among three Camels to win at least two individual events.

Other notable performances were made by sophomores Andrea Higgins (Peabody, Mass.) and Maddie Ford (Acton, Mass.). Higgins was a triple winner by capturing the 200 fly in 2:08.38, 500 free in 5:10.19, and 200 IM in 2:12.79, while Ford punched in first-place times of 52.53 in the 100 free and 59.57 in the 100 fly.

Connecticut College (5-2) will next travel to Wesleyan to compete in a quad meet against Fairfield, Coast Guard and the host Cardinals on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
