WORCESTER, Mass.— Senior Darlene Sao won the 200 IM in 2:10.02 at the preliminaries of the Gompei Invitational at WPI.

The Bears swam just in the preliminaries and not the finals this weekend as the team prepares for final examinations this week.

Senior Sara Cantrell qualified for the NCAA zone championship in the 3-meter diving event with a score of 432.95.

Sophomore Kaitlyn Toth placed second in the 100 butterfly in 59.85 while  the Bears 200 freestyle relay team of Patti Eidenire, Jackie Kokomoor, Caitlyn Gever and Darlene Sao placed second in 1:40.58.

Coast Guard is done for the semester and the Bears are back in action on January 7th in a double dual meet with Babson and Wellesley at Wellesley at 4 p.m.

Nearly every person who swam had lifetime or season best performances so I am glad we didn't stay to poo out later.
