Take two swim teams and make them compete in a swim meet. The result? A dual meet. But what about three teams? A triangular swim meet.

This past Saturday the Lady Aqualopers hosted the first home triangular meet against the Morningside Mustangs and the Colorado School of Mines Orediggers.

The girls placed second beating the Mustangs 70-62 and falling short of the Orediggers 77-61.

The Aqualopers owned four events.Idaho freshman Cidnee Maggart won the 200 Fly with a time of 2:33.41. Kansas sophomore Heather Glodt won the 50 Free with a time of 26.56. Lincoln freshman Brianna Nelsen won the 200 IM with a time of 2:26.72.

The Aqualopers also achieved victory in the 200 Free Relay where Glodt, Maggart, McNeil and Nelsen beat Morningside by .11 seconds with a time of 1:49.50.

On the diving side, Bartley sophomore Kim Ellicott placed second in one-meter diving scoring the team more points. Ellicott was the only diver representing UNK this meet.

The team, though young and small, relished their success in beating the Mustangs a third year in a row.

"I am proud of our win against Morningside. The meet was close the entire time. We all worked hard in our individual events and really came together in the relay. I think we all swam well today," Heather Glodt said.

The Aqualopers will continue the season in November in Omaha against the College of St. Mary.
