LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. (www.lafayette.edu) - The Lafayette women's swimming and diving team improved to 4-0 on Wednesday with a non-conference win over Rider. The Leopards remained solid throughout the meet capturing two of the top three places in 11-of-16 events to hold on for the 158-142 win.

Lafayette opened the meet by capturing first and third places in the 200 medley relay event in 1:54.68. The winning relay team included junior co-captain Nancy Haystrand, sophomore Lisa Loray, and freshmen Jenny Moerschbacher and Erin Rosensteel.

A win in the first event seemed to propel the relay team in other events as three of the four members took home top finishes. Haystrand went on to capture the crown in the 100 fly (1:01.94) and place second in the 200 free (2:03.62). Moerschbacher continues to remain a solid underclassman performer by placing second in the 50 free (26.05)and 100 free (56.28). Loray also performed well for Lafayette, taking third in the 100 breast (1:14.82).

Sophomore Malinda Saia captured the title in the 200 fly while junior co-captain Brenda Thayer took third in the event (2:20.09). Thayer went on to place first in the 400 IM with a time of 4:45.49.

Other top finishers for Lafayette included Ellen Rogers with two third place finishes in the 200 free (2:07.00) and 400 IM (4:58.42). Co-captain Erika Hoke placed second in the 200 back (2:16.10) and third in the 100 back (1:02.89). Alison Scudder also took home two top place finishes including two second place performances in the 100 back (1:02.80) and 500 free (5:37.79).

In the diving events, sophomore Alana Anzalone and freshman Cristin MacDonald took second and third places in the one- and three-meter competitions. Senior Claire Kesicke provided points by placing fourth in both events.

Rider (2-4) was led by junior Melissa Michalov who won the 100 yard backstroke (1:00.95) the 50 yard freestyle (25:22) and the 200 yard backstroke in a time of 2:12.12.

Lafayette (4-0) returns to competition on Dec. 5 when it travels to Towson for a 5 p.m. meet.
