LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The New Mexico State women’s swimming and diving team lost its dual meet to Western Athletic Conference foe Northern Arizona, 171-129, on Saturday inside the NM State Natatorium. The Aggies are now 1-2 in dual meet action.
“Today was a tough loss, we’re definitely better than the results showed today,” head coach Rick Pratt said. “We had a couple of girls injured which really impacted the end of the meet, but we also had some great swims. Overall this a hard time of the year with Thanksgiving behind us and finals ahead.”
Senior Terrin Seaver and sophomore Dorottya Lennert each had two wins on the day to lead NM State.
Seaver swept the backstroke events, winning the 100 back, an event in which she holds the school record, in a time of 57.19 while also winning the 200 back with a time of 2:03.75.
Lennert, meanwhile, won the 100 free in a time of 54.10 and added a victory in the 100 fly with a time of 57.37.
“Terrin Seaver was great, she had lifetime-best in-season swims for dual meets for us, and Tory Lennert also had a great day," Pratt said.
The Aggies also scored first-place points by kicking off the meet with a win in the 200 medley relay. The team of Seaver, Jessica Legge, Lennert and Erin Giles completed the relay in a time of 1:47.25.
The NM State squad will now concentrate on finals for the fall semester and resume swimming and diving on Jan. 3 with a trip to Tucson, Ariz., for a three-way meet. The Aggies next home meet will be on Saturday, Jan. 18, versus Idaho.
