Fast swimming was the theme Friday night at McCaffree Pool as the Michigan State women’s swimming and diving team defeated Grand Valley State 162-138, for their second-consecutive win. The men’s squad lost a close battle against the Lakers 166-134.

Leading the way for the women was senior Summer Strickler, who continued her undefeated season in the 200-yard freestyle winning with a time of 1:54.02. Junior Rebecca Berman notched another win in the 1000-yard freestyle, and the 200-yard freestyle relay, consisting of Brooke Telender, Strickler, Sarah Love and Emily Parsons, got first-place.

Senior Bryan Williams took charge on the men’s side, winning both the 100 and 200-yard butterfly at 48.76 and 1:51:40 respectively.

Next on the schedule, the men travel to South Bend, Indiana to take on Notre Dame on November 15, while the women have the day off.
