Women's Swim & Dive: Kwan, Ling, and Kauahi Shine Against Lancers

CLAREMONT, CA. – The Pomona-Pitzer Women's Swim and Dive Team hosted a dual-meet against Cal Baptist University at Haldeman Pool on Friday late afternoon. Although the Division II program won the meet 209 to 91, the Sagehens demonstrated their programs' ability to excel in a handful of events.

Junior Angela Ling led the 400 medley relay with sophomores Hannah Dorris and Sabrina Kwan, and senior Alex Seidel. The girls swam to a second-place finish at 4:05.39. Ling followed up with a first place performance in the 100 backstroke, clocking in at 59.15, just 0.70 seconds faster than the second-place swimmer.

Sophomore Sabrina Kwan continued where she left off from a solid first year, taking first place in the 200 butterfly at 2:11.48. She later competed in the 100 butterfly and repeated with another first place performance after clocking in at 59.74. Her teammate, junior Madison Kauahi, was behind her in third at 1:00.83.

Kauahi had herself an incredible afternoon before competing in the 100 butterfly, winning both the 50 and 100 freestyle. Kauahi won the 50 freestyle at 24.44 and the 100 freestyle at 54.12. She later joined Seidel and first years Kate Denend and Kirsten Mortimer, swimming in the anchor position for the 400 freestyle relay. The girls took second place at 3:38.48, a little more than a second behind a team from Cal Baptist.

First year Emma van der Veen took fourth place in both the 1-meter (174.23) and 3-meter dive (189.08). Junior Aliana Flagsberg-Tsai was placed in sixth in both events, scoring 120.53 in the 1-meter and 108.53 in the 3-meter.
