MINNEAPOLIS – Competing against four NCAA Division I programs, the Carleton College women’s swimming and diving team still saw 11 Knights qualify for individual event finals on the last day of competition at the Minnesota Invite.

The three-day meet provided the Knights an opportunity to face top-level competition as they shared the water with the University of Minnesota, the No. 16 ranked D-I program in the nation, as well as the University of Utah, San Jose State, and South Dakota State. The meet also included top club swimmers from around the area.

Madison Smith (Fy./Denver, Colo./DSST) and Margaret Lachman (So./New York, N.Y./Nightingale-Bamford) placed 15th and 16th, respectively, in the 1650-yard freestyle as they posted times of 19:01.82 and 19:44.90. Grace Marshall (Jr./Horseheads, N.Y./Horseheads) and Josie Conn (So./Saint Cloud, Minn./Cathedral) were 19th and 20th, reaching the wall at 20:26.69 and 20:44.49, respectively. All four Knights bettered their seed times.

Lydia Boyum (Fy./Bethesda, Md./Walter Johnson) swam in the “C” final of the 200-yard backstroke, bettering her prelims time and touching the wall at 2:13.54 to finish 24th.

Caroline Mather (Sr./Highlands Ranch, Colo./Mountain Vista) was the lone D-III swimmer to qualify for the finals of the 100-yard freestyle. She took 19th place after finishing with a time of 53.11.

Ada Meyer (Jr./Seattle, Wash./Ingraham) turned in Carleton’s top result on the day, placing second in the “B” final and 10th overall in the 200-yard breaststroke with her time of 2:25.76. Kate Grossman (So./Evanston, Ill./Evanston Township) raced in the “C” final, covering the distance in 2:36.69.

The 200-yard butterfly saw Alison Cameron (Fy./Reno, Nev./Reno) post a time of 2:14.26 and take 13th overall after qualifying for the “B” final. Anna Gergely (Sr./Denver, Colo./Jewish Day School) and Meredith Bergman (Sr./Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Day) raced in the “C” final and took 18th and 19th places, respectively, after finishing in 2:21.83 and 2:27.74

The three-day meet concluded with the 400-yard freestyle relay where Carleton’s top entry of Kyle Fraser-Mines (So./Tyngsboro, Mass./Tyngsborough), Claire Neid (Fy./Denver, Colo./George Washington), Eveline Dowling (Sr./Iowa City, Iowa/Iowa City West), and Mather finished 12th with a time of 3:43.22.
