Divers Lead 'Dogs At Home
Nov. 12, 2011
"It was a really good day," head diving coach Taryn Patrick said. "All three of the divers did well and were consistent on both boards."
Luke, a junior from Kenmore, Wash., dove for a career best in the 1-meter dive scoring a 275.40 breaking her past record by almost four points.
"Stacey (Luke) did outstanding on both boards today. She had her lifetime best on the 1-meter and had one of her top five scores on the 3-meter."
"Prigge had a couple bobbles on both boards and stuck with it to fight back finishing strong on both boards," said Patrick. "Sarah (Strand) did really well too and now we just need to bump her degree of difficulty up."
In the pool the Bulldogs delivered some great performances, but a lack of consistency left the 'Dogs finishing second and third in too many races.
"I thought it was really up and down today," said head swimming coach Jeanne Fleck. "We had some really outstanding swims and some really bad ones. The team is fighting through practice real well, but in the meet they are letting the hurt take over."
Sheehan swam for a first place finish in the 1000 freestyle setting a new pool record with a 10:28.09 and broke her season best time of 10:42.80. Titchin, a freshman from England, won the 200 freestyle and set a new pool record with a 1:54.02.
"We had our freshman Courtney (Sheehan) and Lucy (Titchin) winning, but our strokes needed to pick it up," said Fleck. "Michelle (Dockendorf) had a really solid meet and Brittany (Buna) did really well in the 200 back with a season best."
Up next the Bulldogs will travel to the Triton Invitational this Thursday, Nov. 17-Saturday, Nov. 19 before they return home for their final home event of the year on Saturday, Dec. 3 against WAC rival Idaho.
