ALABAMA SWIMMING FINISHES WEEKEND STRONG WITH WIN OVER VANDERBILT

Swimming

The Alabama women’s swimming and diving team closed out the weekend with sweeps in both individual and relay events, beating Vanderbilt 146-105.

Sophomore Rhyan White won both backstroke events winning five individual races in two days. Sophomore Kensey McMahon completed a sweep in the distance freestyle events for the second meet in a row.

Alabama won nine events against Georgia and 14 against Vanderbilt, totaling 23 wins in two meets. Against Vanderbilt, Alabama took the top-two spots in eight races, including both relays.

“Having two meets in two days in two different cities can be a challenge, but our ladies kept their focus and swam hard today, giving us two good days of competition,” head coach Coley Stickels said in a press release.

After opening the season with back-to-back dual meets (back-to-back-back for the women’s team), Alabama returns to action at the Georgia Tech Invitational Nov. 22-24 in Atlanta, Ga.
