The Michigan State Spartans were no match for the Iowa women’s swim team on Oct. 17 in East Lansing. The Hawkeyes won 13 of the 16 events this weekend, improving their record to 2-1.

Senior standout Becky Stoughton, who scored wins in both the distance freestyle races, led Iowa with the help of junior Olivia Kabacinski, who took home wins in the 200 and 100 freestyles.

Sophomore Emma Sougstad, the school record holder in the 100 breaststroke, did not swim the breaststroke, her best event, but did take home a win in the 50 freestyle.

Head coach Marc Long said he was happy with the way his team performed, especially against a Big Ten opponent.

“Credit to Michigan State; they swam really well and gave us a good challenge,” Long said.

Iowa won by a score of 196-103. Next up will be a trip up Interstate 35 to Minnesota to take on the Gophers in another Big Ten matchup.
