WESTMINSTER, Md. - Having posted the top time in eight of 10 races, Franklin & Marshall's women remained perfect in the pool against Centennial Conference (CC) competition this season. The Diplomats (4-2, 4-0) dunked the Green Terror (1-6, 0-5 CC) 55-30 Friday evening.
Krista Hollingsworth paced the Diplomats with a pair of wins. She swam a 25.96 in the 50-yard freestyle for a .72 second edge on fellow first-year and teammate, Jackie Behr. Hollingsworth then took the 100-yard backstroke in 1:05.10, again finishing just in front of a team and classmate, Kasey Christiansen.
Christiansen joined fellow first-years, Lili Shainis and Rebecca Rice, as well as sophomore Lindsey Todd, to start F&M off on a winning note. The Diplomats' foursome posted a 2:00.75 in the 200-yard medley relay for a 2.15-second win over the McDaniel entry. Rice went on to take a tightly contested 100-yard butterfly. She topped Behr by .02 seconds with Rice posting a 1:04.02.
Franklin & Marshall returns to the pool tomorrow against Ursinus.
