MADISON, Wis. – Facing off against two of the Big Ten’s elite on the road Friday night, the University of Notre Dame women’s swimming and diving team picked up a pair of wins from senior All-American Emma Reaney and turned in two runner-up finishes to highlight the evening.
Reaney, who has won five individual events in the last week, claimed the 100 breast in 1:01.94 and the 200 IM in 2:01.43, with both times of the NCAA B Cut variety.
Notre Dame opened the meet with a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay, as Reaney teamed with fellow senior Courtney Whyte, junior Catherine Galletti and sophomore Catherine Mulquin to touch the wall in 1:43.59.
Other top finishes in the pool included Galletti’s fourth-place showing in the 100 back (55.88), sophomore Danielle Margheret’s fourth-place performance in the 100 breast (1:05.41) and senior Bridget Casey’s fifth-place finish in the 200 fly (2:02.45).
On the boards, Notre Dame claimed second, third and fourth on the 3-meter board, as senior Allison Casareto (331.05) was followed by juniors Lindsey Streepey (321.70) and Emma Gaboury (313.35). All three scores were NCAA Zone C qualifying performances.
