DEFIANCE, Ohio – The team of sophomores Jacqueline Loock and Emilee Boleyn with freshman Savannah Marquez and Eme Miller combined to grab the top spot in the women’s 400 yard freestyle relay. It was the best finish on the day for the Defiance College swimming and diving team.
For the women’s results, Miller had the best outing on the afternoon. Along with registering the second fastest time in the first-place relay team, she notched second and third place finishes in the 100 yard breaststroke (1:18.84) and 500 yard freestyle (5:49.78), respectively. In the breaststroke, the freshman came close to the number one spot, but missed it by less than one second.
