Women's Swimming And Diving Sweeps Its Way To Victory At Colgate Invite

HAMILTON, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure University women's swimming and diving team swept first place in all eight events to earn a pair of wins Saturday at the Justin Jennings Memorial Invitational.

For the weekend, the Bonnies triumphed in 15 of 16 events.

The Bonnies took down host Colgate, 234-79, while also defeating Le Moyne, 254-58.

Leading the way for the Bonnies was junior Katrina Wardner who won three individual events on the afternoon. A native of Orchard Park, N.Y., Wardner was victorious in the 100-freestyle (53.71), the 100-butterfly (59.20) and the 200-IM (2:08.54). In the 100-butterfly, Wardner was the only swimmer at the meet to post a time under one minute.

Also winning individual events for the Brown and White was Zanre Oberholzer, Rachel Kimmel, Claire Schaef and Izzy Aguilera.

Oberholzer grabbed first in the 200-backstroke, clocking in at 2:09.39 and Kimmel followed by winning the 200-breaststroke, finishing in 2:19.20. Schaef turned in a time of 5:18.11 in the 500-freestyle to claim first place. Aguilera earned the win on the 3-meter diving board, posting a score of 209.17.

In the 400-freestyle relay, the winning team of Ivana Janssen, Hayley Tasselmyer, Kimmel and Wardner clocked in at 3:39.81.
