GRANVILLE, Ohio – Highlighted by seven individual victories at five provisional qualifying times, No. 2 Denison women's swimming and diving posted a 168-132 win over NCAC-rival and No. 3 Kenyon College on Saturday afternoon at the Trumbull Aquatic Center in Granville.

One year removed from a 154-146 loss to the Ladies in Gambier, Denison took control from the start after Angela Le, KT Kustritz, Maddie Hopkins and Casey Kirby opened the meet with a first-place finish in the 200 medley relay with a 'B' cut time of 1:43.98. DU's first individual win of the day followed in the 1,000 free event when Natalie Zaravella placed first overall with a season-low 10:33.47. Freshman Grace Kacmarek trailed in second with a time of 10:37.05 and Abby Fierstos posed a PR in sixth place with a 10:53.68.

After Hannah Rusinko placed third in the 200 free (1:57.44) and Kirby logged a 58.10 in second in the 100 backstroke, Kustritz added her second victory and 'B' cut time of the day in the 100 breaststroke, clocking in at 1:02.33. Junior Kate Mesaros also posted a provisional qualifying time of 1:03.99 to finish in second place.

Kustritz added another win in the 200 breaststroke with her third 'B' cut time of the day at 2:18.43, and placed second overall in the 200 IM with her best time of the season at 2:03.90, her fourth provisional qualifying time.

In the swimming events, the Big Red tallied three additional victories on the day, including a first-place finish from Zoe Whelan in the 200 butterfly at 2:07.09. Kaila Byerly recorded a personal-best time of 2:10.94 in second place, and Logan Wickman (2:11.22) and Caroline Colville (2:11.52) followed in third and fourth, respectively.

Rusinko placed first overall in the 500 free (5:08.46) and Hopkins led Denison's top three with a victory in the 100 butterfly, clocking in at 56.80. Whelan placed second with a 57.60, and Mesaros followed in third (58.18).

Hopkins also placed second in the 50 free with a season-best time of 24.16 and Erica Hsu clocked in at 2:08.35 in the 200 backstroke to finish in second.

On the diving boards, Emma Weber led the way in the one-meter dive, winning the event with a six-dive score of 241.28. Naomi Clayton less than five points behind Weber in second with a 236.33. Allison Fitzgerald followed in fourth (225) and Mattie Stauss in fifth (200.85). On the three-meter board, Clayton led DU in second place with a score of 223.95. Weber trailed in second at 213.60, and Fitzgerald (202.20) and Stauss (195.68) followed in fourth and fifth, respectively.

Denison will return to action Nov.29 through Dec. 1 when they host the inaugural Denison Invitational in Granville.
