Tampa, Fla. – Lynn University’s swimming team may have lost 100-61 to the University of Tampa but the Fighting Knights once again claimed several individual event victories. Thalie Carmigniani claimed wins in the 1000 free and 200 backstroke while Tyne Potgieter took top honors in the 200 breast stroke.
The day began with the Fighting Knights finishing a close second in the 400 medley relay. Julia Pedersen, Carmigniani, Potgieter and Rhiannon Wilson finished five seconds behind the Spartans ‘A’ squad.
Carmigniani then took to the pool and just as she did in the opening meet, blew away the competition. The freshman from Tours, France beat the next competitor by 23 seconds with a time of 10:49.47 and finished a second off her personal-best time. Morgan Glazer took fifth with a time of 12:30.17.
Pedersen had her best event in the 200 IM, finishing just a hair behind Jamie Papanastos or Tampa. The freshman from Enkoping, Sweden, touched the wall at 2:20.10 after Papanastos logged a time of 2:19.12.
Carmigniani ended her afternoon with a 13 second victory in the 200 backstroke, posting a time of 2:09.10. Clairissa Myatt went in with a time of 2:46.74
Potgeiter was able to post the final victory on the day for the Fighting Knights, topping the field in the 200 breast stroke with a time of 2:32.34. Wilson clocked in with time of 2:47.36.
Lynn returns to the pool on November 17 when it travels to Ft. Pierce, Fla., to take part in a tri-meet against Indian River State College and Nova Southeastern. Don’t forget to ‘Like’ us on Facebook and follow @LUKnights on Twitter and Instagram.
