Crimson Tops Blue in Intrasquad Scrimmage

Sept. 28, 2012

LAWRENCE, Kan. – A pair of top finishes from senior Morgan Sharp and freshman Chelsie Miller propelled the Crimson team past the Blue, 132.5-106.5, in Kansas Swimming and Diving’s annual intrasquad scrimmage Friday afternoon in Robinson Natatorium.

Sharp, the current school record holder in the 500-yard freestyle, took top honors in the 100 and 200-yard freestyle, while Miller finished first in the 200-yard IM and the 500-yard freestyle.

“I was very happy with both of them,” head coach Clark Campbell said. “They both had very good meets. Morgan is way ahead of where she has been in the early season and with Chelsie, we knew that having three Olympic trial cuts, that she could be a player right away and she proved that today.”

Also taking home top finishes for the Crimson team, was senior Rebecca Swank in the 1,000-yard freestyle, junior Sofiia Filatova in the 100-yard butterfly, freshman Bryce Hinde in the 100-yard breaststroke and junior Alyssa Golden won one of the two diving events.

The Blue team saw top finishes from senior Svetlana Golovchun in the 50-yard freestyle, sophomore Alina Vats in the 100-yard backstroke and freshman Meredith Brownell in the other diving event.

“For September it was about were we thought we would be,” Campbell said. “We have got a long ways to go, but that is the beauty of the season, we have a long ways to go.”

The Jayhawks will take to the road for their first official meet of the season when they travel to Houston, Texas, to take on Rice on Saturday, Oct. 6, at noon. Kansas opens the home portion of its schedule against perennial national power Minnesota Oct. 20.
