WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue women's swimming and diving finished off a successful season-opening weekend with a team victory at the Indiana Intercollegiates Saturday afternoon at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center.
Purdue finished with 807.5 points to outscore the five teams with women's competitors in attendance.
Allie Davis won the 200 freestyle to complete a weekend in which she won individual freestyle events of 200, 500 and 1000 yards in length. She also swam the leadoff leg on the victorious 200 free relay Saturday. The freshman was selected as the team's Boilermaker Award recipient. She received the honor from Tracy Glaser, who was recognized by the team after Friday night's dual win against Miami (Ohio). Glaser won her heat of the 100 butterfly Saturday.
Carly Mercer was an individual winner in the 200 IM, posting her third victory of the weekend in a different event. Lizzy Lyon won the 500 free and finished second to Mercer in the 200 IM. Fellow freshman Stephanie Schlobohm touched first in her heat of the 100 breaststroke and was the Boilers' top finisher in the 100 fly. Samantha Feulner won her heat of the 50 free and swam on the victorious 200 free relay team with Rhiannon Sheets, Nora Brolsma and Davis.
Emily Fogle and Sarah Boylen each captured their heats of the 100 back. Additionally, Fogle swam the breaststroke leg on the victorious 200 medley relay team that also featured Amy Katz, Kylie Vogel and Lauren Gustafson. Vogel was the runner up individually in the 50 free.
The Boilermakers return to action the weekend of Nov. 2-3 for road duals at Notre Dame and Northwestern.
