WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Three Boilermakers each posted multiple individual victories to lead No. 20 Purdue women's swimming and diving to a dual meet victory of Michigan State Saturday afternoon to cap a busy weekend of action at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center.
The Purdue women won 14 of the 16 events and took the meet, 167-125, to remain undefeated (7-0) in dual meet action this season.
Michelle Cabassol (diving sweep), Meagan Lim (butterfly sweep) and Carly Mercer (50 free and 200 IM) each won two individual events for the Boilermakers. Kylie Vogel contributed to both of her team's relays wins.
The Purdue women had least each of the top three finishers in the 1-meter diving, 50 and 200 freestyle, 100 and 200 backstroke, and 200 IM.
Allie Davis came up just shy of finishing the 1000 free in under 10 minutes, but still managed to post a personal season-best time of 10:00.34 while winning the event. Francesca Marr (200 breast winner, second in the 200 free), Nika Karlina Petric (200 free winner, second in the 200 back), Davis (second in the 100 free) and Mercer (two wins, second in the 100 back) each had an event victory and a second-place showing.
The Boilers dominated the diving events and claimed five of the top six finishes. Cabassol posted personal season-best scores from both the 1-meter (313.73) and 3-meter (364.14) competitions.
Davis, Hernandez, Manger, Marr, Mercer and Vogel each won at least one individual event and contributed to a relay winner.
The Purdue women are idle next weekend before returning to action Saturday, Jan. 25 for the annual rivalry dual meet at No. 11 Indiana.
