GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College’s women’s swimming team dropped a pair of Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) meets Saturday afternoon at Greensboro College’s Royce Reynolds Family Center Pool. The Quakers (0-4, 0-4 ODAC) fell to the host Pride, 120-64, and to Bridgewater College, 164-39.
Despite the outcome, the Quakers turned in eight college-best times and two season bests. In addition, senior Kendra Medina recorded two of the five-fastest 100-yard backstoke times in school history. She turned in a time of one-minute, 10.63 seconds in the opening leg of Guilford’s 400 medley relay that stands fourth all time at Guilford. Her effort helped the Quakers finish third in the race in 4:56.56, just a second shy of the team’s time in the
2013 ODAC Championship meet. Medina placed second in the 100 backstroke race in a time of 1:10.92, which is fifth-fastest in Guilford history.
Medina placed fourth in the 200 individual medley and Nina Troy had a fourth-place finish in the 100 breaststroke. The Quakers’ 400 freestyle relay placed fourth in 5:48.34.
Senior Emily Carter, who graduates in December, closed out her college career with her fastest time in the 100 backstroke (1:32.98), which placed seventh.
Coach Emily Wilson’s team returns to the pool Dec. 6-7 at the Randolph-Macon Invitational in Richmond, Va.
