The Women's Swimming and Diving team picked up their 1st Dual Meet victory of the season with a surprising win over WPI 166 - 149. The meet came down to the last relay and the winner of the relay would end up winning the meet.  Not only did the "A" relay end up beating WPI in a close dash to the wall, but Wesleyan's "B" relay also touched out the WPI "A" relay for a 1st & 2nd place finish for Wesleyan to clinch the meet and give Wesleyan's first win of the season. The First place relay team was comprised of Maela Whitcomb, Charlotte Pitts, Sophia Antonio and Serena Zalkowitz. The second place team was made up of Luisa Chan, Kylie Han, Zoe Kerrich and Yan Li Yao.

It was an incredible meet to finish the semester up with this evening.  The team rallied to produce many season best performances . Once exams and the holidays are over, Wesleyan will regroup back on campus on Dec. 30th to kick off the 2nd half of the season and preparations for the Winter Training Trip to Puerto Rico as the swimmers and divers begin to gear up for the championship season in February.
