Ft. Pierce, Fla. – Lynn University’s women’s swimming team returned to the pool after a three week layoff to compete against Indian River State College and Nova Southeastern. Thalie Carmigniani paced the Fighting Knights with a victory in the 200 yard back stroke and second place finish in the 200 yard individual medley.
The day started off a bit rough for LU with Carmigniani taking third place in the 1650 yard freestyle with a time of 18:04.12, nearly 20 seconds off the pace. Julia Pedersen and Clairissa Myatt later placed fifth in the 200 yard free and 100 yard back stroke.
Tyne Potgieter swam two breast stroke events, finishing third in the 100 yard with a time of 1:08.08 and third in the 200 yard with a time of 2:31.00. She was joined by Morgan Glazer in the 100 yard and the freshman from Tallahassee, Fla., logged a time of 1:22.35.
Pedersen picked up the pace with a fourth place finish in the 100 yard free and the momentum carried over to the 200 yard back stroke where Carmigniani took the event by five seconds with a time of 2:08.88.
The Tours, France, native then lost by a hair in the 200 IM, dropping to Petricia Casellas of IRSC 2:12.37 to 2:.12.84
