Belles Start Off Season at MIAA Relays


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Saint Mary's swimming team kicked off their 2009-10 season at the MIAA Relays hosted by Calvin College on Saturday afternoon.

The relays were a non-scoring event, so no team scores were tabulated.

The Belles had their top finish of the afternoon in the 1500 yard freestyle relay as the trio of Katie Griffin, Ellie Watson, and Sara Niemann finished third in a time of 16:48.64.  The Belles claimed a fourth place finish in the 500 yard freestyle relay to keep pace in the distance events.  Marissa Schlabach, April Detro, Anna Vandecaveye, and Ellie Watson finished in 5:03.67 for the Belles in the event.

Saint Mary's also notched a fifth-place finish on the afternoon in the 200 yard breaststroke relay as Watson, Vandecaveye, Megan Domagola, and Audrey Dalrymple finished in 2:19.48.

The Belles will open up the conference season this upcoming Friday when they host Kalamazoo at Rolfs Aquatic Center at 7:00 p.m.
