Kim, Forrester Come Up Big Again

DARTMOUTH, Mass. - The Bulldogs got back on the winning track Wednesday, when they soundly defeated the Bears of Brown, 191-107.  The meet, which took place at UMass-Dartmouth, featured a number of strong swims across the board for Yale. 

Senior Susan Kim continued her dominance in the breaststroke events, winning both the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke.  She also took first in the 200-yard individual medley. 

Freshman Alex Forrester wound up in the winner's circle four times, winning the 50-yard freestyle and 200-yard backstroke, individually.  She also participated in both winning relays, the 400-yard relay freestyle and 200-yard medley relay. 

Freshman Monica Tung came up with two huge wins for the Bulldogs, claiming the 100- and 200-yard butterfly events. 

"Monica winning both the breaststroke events was a huge help for us," said Robert J.H. Kiphuth Director of Swimming Frank Keefe.

But one of the outstanding performances of the night came from freshman Molly Albrecht in the 500-yard freestyle, where she swam a time of 5:01.95.

"It was Molly's first time swimming the event in competition all year," said Keefe.  "The time she put up was the third fastest time on the team this year.  It was an outstanding swim."

The Bulldogs have a short break before taking on UConn at home this Saturday, Feb. 6.
