Swingewood shines in meet at Calvin

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Samantha Swingewood, a first-year swimmer, scored first place performances in the 400-yard individual medley and 200 butterfly as Albion College finished second out of five teams assembled for a two-day meet at Calvin College.

Swingewood also touched the wall first in the 200 IM on Friday.

Alexandra Horman scored a first place finish in the 100 butterfly in the Saturday morning session.

Rileigh Eding nearly scored first place in the 100 backstroke. Eding finished in 58.09 seconds, trailing the first place finisher from Hope College by seven hundredths of a second.

"We swam a lot of season best times and I was very happy with the meet," Head Coach Nick Stone said. "This time of year isn't supposed to be about fast swimming, but figuring it out for end of the season at the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Championships. The team has shown a lot of improvement and focus on those little race details and it's showing in their performances."
