Lisa Andersson won the 50 free (24.50), 100 free (52.00), 200 free (1:54.53) and was part of the 200 free relay (1:37.49) that took home top honors for the Lady Owls as Atlantic University's men's and women's swim teams split in a tri-dual meet with UNLV and the College of Charleston on Saturday morning at FAU pool.
The chilly weather could not keep the Lady Owls from dominating the freestyle events as Boguslawa Bedyk placed third in both the 50 free (24.83) and 200 free (1:55.91), while Valeria Dalmastro (Miami, FL) snuck in for a second place finish in the 50 free as the Lady Owls swept the top-three spots in the event.
Geni Burts swam a season-best time in the 400-yard IM to win the event. Burts, a freshman from Pembroke Pines, FL, posted a time of 4:30.17.
In the backstroke events, senior captain Kelly Pancake won the 200 backstroke in 2:08.26 and placed second in the 100 back (1:00.52)
In the final event of the meet, the Owls narrowly missed a first place finish in the 200-free relay after posting a time of 1:25.25. The Rebels took the event just .13 seconds ahead of the home team.
Florida Atlantic closes out its home schedule on January 31st when the team hosts Miami. When the squads met earlier this season in Coral Gables, the Lady Owls defeated the Hurricanes for the first time in head coach Steve Eckelkamp's 14 seasons at FAU, 162-126.
