Alex swam her first college swim meet this last Saturday.  It was a quad meet against Radford University, James Madison University, and Campell University.  They swam at Radford  in Virginia. Alex swam two individual events and two relays.

Her first event was the 200 Medley Relay which she was the lead off leg of the “A” relay swimming Backstroke.  She went out in a 29.57 putting the relay in 4th after her leg.  The relay finished 3rd overall.

Next was the 100 Backstroke which she swam in a 1:02.44 for a 5th (of 15) place finish.

The 100 Freestyle followed that where she swam a 56.42.   With that she finished 9th of 14 swimmers.  She said her last 25 was really slow and expects to do better next swim.

The last event was the 200 Freestyle Relay. Alex swam the 3rd leg of the “A” relay. She swam a 25.24 for the 2nd fastest split on the team (fastest was only .01 seconds faster). The relay finished 4th overall.

Marshall went 2-1 in the overall team competition beating Radford and Campbell and losing to James Madison.
