Women’s Swimming Dominates Trinity, 195-98, in NESCAC Dual

Brooklyn Hayes

HARTFORD, Conn. – Freshman Vaughn Ammon (Franklin, Tenn.) and sophomore Brooklynn Hayes (Granville, Mass.) each won two individual events and swam on a first-place relay to propel the Connecticut College women's swimming team to a lopsided 195-98 dual meet victory over Trinity on Monday afternoon.

In the opening race of the day, Hayes swam the breaststroke leg for the 200-yard medley relay team which clocked in at 1:50.68 and also included senior Maeve Wilber (New Marlborough, Mass.) as well as sophomores Brynn Campbell (Glastonbury, Conn.) and Maddie Ford (Acton, Mass.). She then went on to win the 100 and 200 breast events in times of 1:09.91 and 2:29.88, respectively.

Ammon was as equally as impressive, as she captured the 100 and 200 free events in 54.41 seconds and 1:57.54. The freshman ended the meet on a high note by teaming up with senior Olivia Haskell (Norwalk, Conn.), Wilber, and Ford to comprise the winning 400 free relay which touched the wall in 3:37.32.

Sophomore Andrea Higgins (Peabody, Mass.) also joined Ammon and Hayes as a two-time winner individually. She took first place in the 200 back in 2:10.87 as well as the 200 IM in 2:14.38.

Connecticut College (3-2) will host Bridgeport and Assumption in its final home meet of the season on Saturday at 1 p.m.
