Pioneers Battle Arizona State

TEMPE, ARIZ. – Denver swimming and diving faced Arizona State University in a non-scored trials meet Friday afternoon. The meet was not scored by agreement of both team’s coaches, however the times will count.

"I’m really happy with our efforts and adjustments to racing short course meter today,” head coach Brian Schrader said. “I want to make sure we have some great focus and bring some intensity to our dual meet with both ASU and UNLV tomorrow."

Swimming strong for the Pioneers once again was Bridgette McNally (Lone Tree, Colo.) who posted first-place times in both of her individual events. McNally dominated the 50 and 150 meter backstroke posting times of 29.61 and 1:37.34. The junior was also a key part of the Pioneers’ top time in the 500 meter freestyle relay. McNally teamed with Samantha Corea (Vancouver, British Columbia), Johanna Roas (Munich, Germany) and Drew Matthews (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) for a time of 4:56.02.

Driving forces on Denver’s men’s side were Dylan Bunch (Boulder City, Nev.) who won the 800 meter freestyle (8:06.40), Kyle Robrock (Savage, Minn.) who placed first in the 50 meter freestyle (23.43) and Andrew Torres (Arvada, Colo.) who was victorious in the 150 meter butterfly (1:29.95).

Denver swimming and diving is back in the water in Tempe, Ariz., on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 2:00 p.m. MT when it faces Arizona State and UNLV.
