It was the first official meet in the new pool and Luther defeated Grinnell 194-105. The Norse won all but three events and because it was the first official meet, technically there were 16 pool records set this afternoon.
Multiple first place finishes were posted by Clare Slagel, Emily Anderson, Jackie Hughes and Zoe Johnson. Slagel won both the 100 and 200 backstroke. Anderson touched the wall first in the 50 and 100 freestyle, while Hughes did the same in the 200 breaststroke and 200 IM. Johnson won both the one-meter and three-meter diving events.
Lexi Scharmer, Emily Schroeder and Paige Anderson went 1-2-3 in the 100 fly. Erin Connolly placed first in the 100 breaststroke as did Elizabeth Reed in the 500 freestyle.
The Norse started and ended the meet with victories in the 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay respectively. Slagel, Connolly, Scharmer and Anderson swam the 200 medley, while Slagel, Anderson, Katie Storey and Connolly combined for the 400 freestyle relay victory.
The Norse will return to action one week from today when they will host Augustana-Rock Island and Simpson College. This triangular will begin at 1:00 p.m.
