Florida State University’s women’s swimming and diving team remained undefeated on the season earning victories against James Madison (144-102) and William & Mary (141-95) in a tri-meet Saturday afternoon in Harrisonburg, Va. The Lady Seminoles placed first in 12 of the afternoon’s 13 events.

Senior All-American Christy Cech won the 100 and 200-meter freestyle, touching the wall at 52.49 and 1:56.22, respectively. Freshman Jennie Lyes placed first in the 50 free (23.59) for the second day in a row after taking the win yesterday against Maryland. Lyes picked up a second win in the 200 backstroke with a time of 2:05.93.

In diving, sophomore Chelsie Lerew, the 2001 Atlantic Coast Conference Diver of the Year, won the one-meter event with a score of 303.8. In three-meter action, freshman Courtney McClow earned her first victory of the year with a point total of 310.5.

In relay action, the 400-meter medley relay team of junior Margaret Colley, seniors Keryn Krynauw, Candice Nethercott and Cech placed first with a time of 3:54.64. The 400 free relay went to FSU as well when the team of freshman Golda Marcus, junior Betsy Nagy, sophomore Jennifer Smith and Krynauw paced the competition with a time of 3:32.52.

Other individual wins for the Lady Seminoles came from freshman Angie Leach in the 1000-meter free (10:29.49) and 500 free (5:07.53), freshman Lisa How in the 200 butterfly (2:06.42) and Krynauw in the 200 breast (2:19.91).

Scoring in tri-meet action is determined how the FSU swimmer or diver does against her opponent from each team.
