Women's swim team beats Iowa State
The Iowa women’s swimming and diving team hosted Iowa State on Dec. 7 and cruised past the in-state rival, winning 190-108. The Hawkeyes claimed 14 out of 16 events.
Hawkeye sophomore Becky Stoughton grabbed three firsts: 500 freestyle (4:52.99), 1,000 freestyle (9:57.61), and 200 fly, in which she set a school record with a time of 1:69.58.
Iowa picked up its third-straight win against the Cyclones, and coach Marc Long noted his team’s character in a release after the meet.
“It was a long weekend last weekend, and we came back to an intense environment with a great team like Iowa State, and I’m really proud of how the team stepped up in this situation.”
The team will compete again on Dec. 17 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
