KU swimming tops Miami


— Kansas University's swimming and diving team defeated the University of Miami, 159-84, Friday in Florida. KU took home 10 first-place finishes in the 13-event meet.

The Jayhawks' even attack was led by Aly Colver who registered two wins at the meet. The Holyoke, Colo. native won the 200-yard freestyle in a time of 1:53.59 and the 100-yard freestyle finishing with a time of 52.70.

Six other Jayhawks brought home individual victores, including Ashley Dower in the 50-yard freestyle (24.56), Kristen Johnson in the 200-yard individual medley (2:08.15), Amy Gruber in the 100-yard butterfly (57.95), Whitney Sondall in the 100-yard backstroke (57.86), Gina Gnatzig in the 500-yard freestyle (5:04.81) and Miranda Isaac in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:06.37).

"Our meet today with Miami went very well," head coach Clark Campbell said. "We are in the middle of some very hard training. This training is designed to get us ready to swim in Feburary and March, not necessarily get us ready for January 9th. This meet was outdoors and it will be the only one we swim outside all year. I just thought today went extremely well."

In diving action Shelby Noonan finished third in the one-meter (242.92) and Tayler Eldridge finished third in the three-meter (226.43) diving competitions.
