CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.- The University of New Hampshire women’s swimming and diving team lost to Boston College on Thursday night, 184-110. With the defeat, the Wildcats have lost two consecutive meets after returning from winter training camp, held over UNH’s semester break. The UNH women’s team now hold a record of 4-5 on the season.
Junior Julie Denton (Fullerton, Calif.) was a standout performer for UNH as she won two events. Denton placed first in the 100 Breaststroke with a time of 1:06.58 and also won the 200 Breaststroke (2:23.04). Denton is no stranger to the 200 Breaststroke, as she placed second in the event at last years America East Champiosnhips. Sophomore Kristen Zeimetz (Rochester, N.H.) finished second to Denton in both the 100 and 200 Breaststroke.
Senior Kristen Latourelle (Haverhill, Mass.) also won an event as she earned a victory in the 400 Individual Medley (4:42.37). Latourelle, a captain on this year’s team, has excelled in both the 200 IM and 400 IM throughout her career at UNH, evidenced by her winning both events at last year’s America East Championships.
The 200 Freestyle Relay unit of junior Sarah Prentiss (Pittsburgh, Pa.), Denton, Zeimetz, and sophomore Carrie Woynerowski (Mountain Lakes, N.J.) finished second in the event, trailing one of the Boston College contingents by only six-hundredths of a second.
The UNH men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams have their next meet on Tuesday, January 25 at 5:00 p.m. at Swasey Pool on the UNH campus in Durham.
