BUIES CREEK, North Carolina – UNCW held an eight-point lead going into the 200 Freestyle Relay, but Campbell won the event, placing first and third, to rally past UNCW, 103-102, in women’s swimming action on Saturday at the Johnson Natatorium.

The win snapped a seven-meet Camels losing streak to the Seahawks, who visited Johnson Natatorium for the first time in the short history of the rivalry.

In the final event, UNCW placed second to maintain a one-point lead, but the CU’s relay of Virginia Dailey, KB Burnette, Sarah Walker and Marissa Coughlin touched the wall in a time of 1:42.31 to take third and the deciding two points for the win.

The Seahawks had taken the lead in the previous event with sophomore Jenson Engen leading a 1-2-3 UNCW finish in the 100 Breaststroke for the 98-90 lead.

Engen was joined by junior Hannah Stephenson (100 Backstroke), Cat Gargula (100 Butterfly) and Rachel Sears (100 Freestyle) as multi-event winners. All four swam on the winning 200 Medley Relay and added individual event wins later in the meet.

Junior Chelsea Tomko posted UNCW’s other event win, taking first in the 50 Freestyle.

UNCW closes out the regular season next weekend when a select group of swimmers head to the Virginia Tech Invitational on Feb. 8-9. The Seahawks will then set their sights on the Colonial Athletic Association championships on Feb. 26-Mar. 1.
