Keene State sinks Plymouth State

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Keene State College had too much power and depth for Plymouth State College Wednesday night, and the Owls defeated the Panthers, 189-111, in a women's swimming and diving meet at the PSC Natatorium.

The win was KSC's fifth in a row over the Panthers. The Owls improve to 6-2 on the season, while PSC drops to 5-3.

Keene State captured 10 of the 14 individual events as well as both relay events in pool record-time (1:57.25 in the 200 medley relay, 3:56.85 in the 400 free relay). Pacing the Owls were sophomore Katie Goulet (Nashua, N.H.) and freshman Meagan Humphries (New Hartford, N.Y.), who won two individual events apiece. Goulet captured the 100 yard butterfly (1:03.82) and 200 fly (pool-record 2:19.90), while Humphries took the 50 free (26.50) and 100 free (57.42).

The rest of Keene State's individual winners included senior Katie Tetreault (West Springfield, Mass.) in the 100 breast (1:13.80), senior Katy Carigiulo (Chappaqua, N.Y.) in the 200 breast (2:47.16), junior Kristen Hart (Haverhill, Mass.) in the 100 back (1:06.02), freshman Cathy Klein (Middlesex, N.J.) in the 200 free (2:06.58), freshman Shannon Talbot (Cheshire, Conn.) in the 1000 free (12:15.02), and sophomore Lisa Wandeloski (Westfield, Mass.) in the 200 individual medley (2:22.64).

Plymouth State was led by sophomore Scarlette Scarborough (Salem, N.H.), who placed first in the 200 backstroke (2:22.12), and was edged out for first in the 200 fly but set a new school record (2:19.92). Freshman Ann Winters (Chester, N.H.) captured the 500 free (5:54.65), and PSC swept the diving events, with sophomore Jen Crescenzi (Killingworth, Conn.) winning the one-meter (216.60) and classmate Krit Kearins (Andover, Mass.) taking the three-meter (230.95).
