Maggie Vaughan set a Ladies record
in the 1,000 free Saturday

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Facing stiff competition in Saturday’s tri-meet, the Centenary women’s swim team fell to both San Diego State (72-39) and hosts TCU (77-32) at the TCU Student Recreation Center.

Against the two teams from the Mountain West Conference, Centenary put forth a competitive effort in Saturday’s meet, led by two event victories by freshman Maggie Vaughan (Clinton, Miss./Clinton).

Vaughan had a strong weekend in both the 500 free and 1,000 free, winning both events at TCU Saturday. In the 500 free, Vaughan came within three-tenths of a second of breaking her own program record, winning the event in Saturday’s meet with a time of 5:07.99. In the 1,000 free, Vaughan won the event with a time of 10:26.90, lowering her own Centenary record.

For the weekend, Vaughan captured four wins, sweeping both the 500 free and 1,000 free Friday and Saturday, setting program records in both events.

Fellow-freshman Rebecca Loy (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound), Centenary record holder in the 100 breast, captured second place in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:09.15.

Also competitive in Saturday’s meet, sophomore Leslie Clampitt (Dallas/Highland Park) finished third in the 50 free with a time of 25.44, one of her best times of the season.

Freshman Natalie Nazzal (Kingwood, Texas/Kingwood) took third in the 56.02 in the 100 free.

To close the meet, competing in the 13th and final event on the women’s side, Centenary finished second in the 200 free relay, as the team of Clampitt, Nazzal, along with sophomore Alana Gregory (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound) and junior Melanie Zimmerman (Round Rock, Texas/Round Rock) finished with a time of 1:41.65.

Hosts TCU defeated both the Ladies and San Diego State (71-40) Saturday, led by senior Tara Sullivan’s two event wins.

Centenary takes a break from competition following Saturday’s meet, next competing Dec. 19-20 at St. Louis University.
