CMS Women's Swim and Dive Coasts to Two SCIAC Wins in Home Opener

CLAREMONT, Calif. - The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's swimming and diving team won every event as it dominated in its home opener, winning by big margins against both Caltech and Chapman in SCIAC tri-meet on Saturday at Axelrood Pool.

CMS defeated Chapman 243-57 and Caltech 250-49 as it improved to 3-0 in SCIAC competition, following a win over Occidental last weekend. 

CMS began the meet by having the top three teams in the 200-yard medley relay, with Jameson Mitchum, Mackenzie Mayfield, Sun Young Byun and Annika Sharma winning in 1:47.63. 

Katy Shaw was then the individual winner in the 1000-yard freestyle, her first of two distance wins on the day, finishing in 10:45.66. She would later add a 5:15.04 win in the 500 to complete the distance sweep. Byun took the 200 free in 1:56.72 for her first of two wins as well, as she added a 100 fly win in 57.74 seconds, leading a 1-2-3 finish with Madeleine Kan second and Lexi Lee third. 

Mitchum earned a 100-yard backstroke win in 59.89, her first of two wins, as she would follow up by winning the 200 back in 2:09.93, leading a 1-2-3 Athena finish with Anna Werts and Quinn Katayama-Stall. Mayfield took the 100 breast in 1:05.63, Annie Johnson took the 200 fly in 2:10.42, leading a 1-2-3 finish with Allyson Yao and Sharma, and Ally Rudolph took the 50 free in 24.81 to cap off the first swimming session. 

After a 20-minute break, the Athenas continued to place first, with Mayfield winning again in the 100 free in 53.73, Kelly Prawira winning the 200 breast in 2:28.25, and Yao taking the 400 IM in 4:41.45, in another 1-2-3 CMS finish with Werts as the runner-up and Johnson third.

CMS capped off the sweep with a 200 free relay win, as Rudolph, Mayfield, Jade Saunders and Sharma won in 1:38.64. 

The diving events also went the way of CMS, as Makenna Parkinson and Emma Ng Pack went 1-2 in opposite order in the two events. Parkinson edged Ng Pack in the three-meter 299.85 to 294.40 and Ng Pack had a strong effort in the one-meter, breaking 300 points with a 302.55, while Parkinson was second. 

CMS will be back in action on Dec. 2-3, when it competes in a two-day meet with Pomona-Pitzer.
