Gambier, Ohio - The women's swimming team extended its lead after the second day of action at the Total Performance Invitational, and will have a 110-point lead on home-standing Kenyon as the six competing teams prep for a busy final day of events at the Kenyon Aquatic Center.
Although Taylor Sneed and Melissa Parratto were the only two individual event winners for the Quakers, Penn was able to place enough swimmers into the finals of most events to earn the points that increased its lead to a comfortable margin. Sneed won the 100 Backstroke in a time of 56.24 while fellow freshman Lauryn Brown came in fourth. Parratto took home the title in the 400 IM (4:25.16), and had company from Rebecca Aiello, Carly Gurick and Jenny Claydon, who finished third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
Sneed and Parratto also combined to finsh third and fourth in the 200 Butterfly, while Laura Klick was another top finisher for Penn, coming in third in the 100 Breaststroke.
The Quakers have won the past two years at the Total Performance Invitational and will go for three in a row with competition wrapping up tomorrow evening. Live streaming of both preliminaries and finals can be found here.
