HONOLULU -- Allie Davis each a pair of events to lead Purdue women's swimming and diving to an outdoor dual meet victory at Hawaii Saturday afternoon in the Boilermakers' first meet since November.
The No. 20 Purdue women won all 12 events to cruise to a 146-91 victory in the team scoring. The abbreviated co-ed dual meet only featured 200-yard races in the backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and IM events. The 1-meter springboard was the lone diving event contested.
The Purdue women improved to 5-0 in dual meet action. The Boilermakers have been in Honolulu since Dec. 27 for their winter training trip.
Davis won the 200 and 500 freestyle. Carly Mercer won the 50 free and contributed to Purdue's relay winners in the 200 medley and 400 free team events.
Nika Karlina Petric (10:03.96) posted a new Purdue season-best time while winning the 1000 free. Casey Matthews recorded a team season-best mark as well while winning the women's 1-meter diving.
The Purdue women had at least the top three finishers in seven of the nine individual swimming events. Hannah Manger (200 back), Francesca Marr (200 breast), Meagan Lim (200 IM) and Grace Hernandez (100 free) all won an individual event and contributed to a relay winner.
Purdue returns to action next weekend when it hosts Michigan and Michigan State for dual meets at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center on back-to-back days.
