READING, Pa.--The Hood College women's swim team (7-4, 4-4 MAC) split a double dual at Albright College Saturday. The Blazers defeated Ocean County Community College, 95-9, but fell to the Lions in conference action, 79-27.
Shannon McHale was a double-winner for the Blazers in the 100 back (1:03.38) and 200 back (2:17.27).
Brittany Whitham finished second in the 200 free (2:08.51); Lauren Fogarty was the runner-up in the 200 fly (2:19.46); Caitlin Fay took second in the 100 free (57.53) and the 500 free (5:30.98); and Lindsay Cronin was the runner-up in the 400 IM (5:33.10).
Hood was also second in both relays; McHale, Meg Blodgett, Theresa Schwarzwalder and Whitham were touched out by the Albright squad in the 200 free relay by 0.02 seconds and the 200 medley relay team of McHale, Fogarty, Katie Rogers and Fay touched the wall in 1:58.75, less than a second behind the Albright foursome.
