BETHLEHEM, Pa. (www.lafayette.edu) - Lafayette's women's swimming and diving team upended arch rival Lehigh tonight 121-118 in league action in Bethlehem.

The meet came down to the wire with Lafayette leading by ten points heading into the final event. The Leopards (3-0, 1-0) took second in the 200 free relay, but it was good enough to hold on for the win. The victory broke a seven year winning streak by the Mountain Hawks, dating back to the 1994-95 season when Lafayette recorded it's last win by 12 points.

Head coach Jim Dailey was impressed with his team's overall effort.

"I couldn't be more proud of our team," Dailey said. "They work extremely hard in and out of the pool and rely on each other to succeed rather than a select few. The win couldn't happen to a better team of women."

Lafayette was led by freshman Erin Rosensteel (Hershey, Pa./Hershey) who notched two top three finishes by taking first in the 100 free (54.64) and second in the 50 free (25.51). Rosensteel followed Katie Duffy (Rumson, N.J./Rumson Fair Haven) in the 50 free, who took first in 25.40 seconds.

Senior co-captains Erika Hoke (Pottsville, Pa./Nativity BVM) and Nancy Haystrand (Hillsdale, N.J./Pascack Valley) put forth strong efforts by taking first in the 200 IM (2:13.72) and 200 fly (2:10.70), respectively. Junior Alison Scudder (Mamaroneck, N.Y./Mamaroneck) took first in the 200 back event (2:10.86) ahead off freshman Jenny Moerschbacher (Selinsgrove, Pa./Selinsgrove Area) who finished third (2:12.30).

A tremendous scoring boost came from the diving competition, which provided 32 points for the Leopards. Sophomore Alana Anzalone (Shavertown, Pa./Wyoming Seminary), freshman Cristin MacDonald (Glendora, N.J./Gloucester Catholic) and senior Claire Kesicke (North Salem, N.Y./John Jay) took first, second and third place finishes in both the one-meter and three-meter events. All three divers improved on their scores from the last time out to provide a scoring punch for Lafayette.

Lafayette returns to action when it travels to Rider on Nov. 28 at 4 p.m.
