GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College’s Isabel Gutierrez set the school 100-yard breaststroke record in Friday’s opening day of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Women’s Swimming Championships at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.
Gutierrez swam the opening leg of the Quakers’ 400-yard medley relay in one minute, 9.74 seconds to break the former mark of 1:10.47 set by Kendra Medina ’14 at the 2013 ODAC Championships. Gutierrez helped the Quakers place eighth in the race, accounting for all 40 of the team’s points after five events.
Guilford is in ninth place in the nine-team field after Friday’s competition. Defending league champion Washington and Lee University (227) holds a two-point lead over Emory & Henry College (225) entering Saturday’s competition.
The Quakers’ 200-yard freestyle team missed out on the eight-team A final with a preliminary time of 2:09.05. The team of Morgan McKinnon, Gutierrez, Caitlin Young and Jocelyn Gesner shaved over four seconds off that time in the B final with a time of 2:05.97.
The competition resumes Saturday and continues through Sunday at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.
