PHILADELPHIA - The Penn women's swimming and diving picked up a win and a loss at its final home meet of the year. The Quakers easily downed Rider, 191-109, but was unable to stop the undefeated Navy from making waves at Sheerr Pool on Saturday as Penn fell to the Midshipmen, 159-141.
Penn demonstrated its depth during the meet as they placed first in only one event, but racked up enought points to rollover the Broncs and give the Mids a run for the undefeated season and in five events Penn took second and third place. Penn's lone first-place finish was the 400 freestyle relay - the final event of the meet. The team of Amy Reams, Felicia Leksono, Meghan Barron and Andrea Balint swam to first in 3:34.15. Freshmen Laura Klick broke the pool record in the 100 breastroke only to have Navy's Mallory Dietrick also break the record less than a half second faster then Klick. The pair matched up in the 200 breastroke and Dietrick once again took first.
The Quakers are back in the pool on Friday when they travel to West Chester for a non-conference matchup.
