HILLSDALE, Mich. – The Northern Michigan swimming and diving team competed for the second day in a row on Sunday (Nov. 13). The Wildcats were defeated by Hillsdale College from John “Jack” McAvoy Natatorium, 134-104.
“This weekend didn’t go as well as I would’ve liked it to but we had some good individual performances,” NMU coach Heidi Voigt said. “Today was a good battle and if a couple events had went our way it would’ve been a different outcome.”
The ‘Cats won three of the 15 events on the day. Freshman Emily Brennan had three firsts of her own. She won the 200 and 500 freestyle races and 200 breaststroke.
Senior captain Gaby Alzaga won the 200 backstroke with freshman teammate Emily Bourguignon finishing in second.
Freshman Debbi Lawrence won the 100 freestyle and was second in the 200 individual medley.
Freshman Jordan Iverson was second in the 1650 freestyle. She was also third behind teammate freshman Madisen Sechena in the 200 butterfly.
Divers freshman Sophia Garris and sophomore Katie Lochart finished second and third in the 1-meter and 3-meter dives.
The 200 freestyle relay team finished second as junior Lauren Cockels, sophomore Kelsey Sipple, Bourguignon and Lawrence swam the event.
Freshman Aspen McHugh finished third in the 200 breaststroke.
The ‘Cats get back in the pool after Thanksgiving break, traveling back downstate to the Calvin Invite on Dec. 1-3 in Grand Rapids.
