|Day One Houston Invite|
The Idaho Swim and Dive team concluded their first day of competition at the Houston Invitational yesterday. The team had a great day in the pool and is now second after one day of competition.
“We were really good this evening,” Coach Mark Sowa said. “The 3 freshmen in the 500 were awesome with 3 personal best but also improving in an event that as a team we need to get better at.”
Junior swimmer Rachel Millet had an excellent day in the pool. Millet won the 50 free with a school record time of 23.13. The record was previously held by teammate Erica Anderson. Millet placed second in the 200 IM and also broke the school record for that event with a time of 2:00.36. She also raced in the 200 free relay with Anderson, Monks, and Venlos and placed second with a time of 1:33.64
Senior diver Paige Hunt had an excellent day as well , winning the 3- meter dive with a score of 312.90.
“There were a ton of best times, lot of kids swimming as fast as they swam at WAC last year,” Sowa said. “The divers were really good in a good field, our relays were very solid as well. Got a lot of swims still left at this meet so we will continue to take one thing at a time but feel good about a good night of competing.”
