fourth in both the 50-yard backstroke (:27.65) and 100-yard backstroke (:59.36).
Both her times were school records. Diver Naima Ford '11 took sixth in the three-meter dive (373.00) and eighth in
the one-meter dive (332.70). Janine Zaltsman '11 showed her versatility by
placing seventh in the 100-yard freestyle (:53.23) and eighth in the 50-yard
butterfly (:26.87). Her time of :53.08 in the preliminaries set a Wesleyan
program record. Another top finish for the Cardinals came from Amelia Lupinetti '11 with a ninth-place showing in the 400-yard individual medley while
Caitlin Bethlahmy '09 had two strong distance freestyle efforts as she ended up
11th in the 1000-yard event and 12th in the 1650-yard swim. The 200-yard
freestyle relay squad of Madden, Agnes Koczo '09, Emily Kodis '11 and Zaltsman
shattered the team mark by more than half a second with their time of 1:39.59.
