The Lewis University women's swimming team picked up three more NCAA B cut times as they reached the podium three times to finish fourth (1092) on the final day of the House of Champions at the IUPUI Natatorium on Sunday (Nov. 24).
The University of Wisconsin Green Bay (1819) won the championship style meet that boasted an eight-team field that included six NCAA Division I women's swimming programs.
"I couldn't be more proud," Lewis women's swimming coach Roger Karns said. "The team raced very well, attacked the walls and had great breakouts - just the type of skills we address on a daily basis during training."
Lewis sophomore Montana Clasby (Cedar Falls, Iowa/Cedar Falls) won the 200-yard breaststroke with a time of 2:19.13 and registered a NCAA B cut time.
Senior Caitlyn Scheirer (Washington, Ill./Washington Community) took second in the 200-yard butterfly (2:07.66), breaking Allie Henges 2003 Lewis school record of 2:08.03.
Freshman Shannon Sullivan (Elmhurst, Ill./York Community) collected a third place finish and a NCAA B cut in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 52.25.
In the 400-yard freestyle relay, junior Cindy Jezuit (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton North), freshmen Brittany Kamper (Orland Park, Ill./Sandburg) and Courtney Duy (Buckeye, Ariz./Millennium) teamed up with Sullivan for a fourth-place time of 3:33.36. The quartet collected a NCAA B cut time and broke the Lewis school record of 3:34.53 set in 2002 by Brittany Reetz, Molly Ward, Lydia Morris, and Sarah Scott.
Lewis returns to action on Saturday (Dec. 7) when the Flyers head to Kirksville, Mo., to take on Truman State. The dual meet is set to start at 11 AM.
