Swimming falls at Wittenberg meet

The Butler swim team fell to Wittenberg by a score of 177-82 Saturday.

Freshman Amanda Wagner had another strong meet, finishing third of 10 swimmers in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:12:12). Wagner also got second of 11 swimmers in the 200-yard breaststroke (2:36:87).

Butler had six top-three finishes overall.

“I think we did a lot of positive things” coach Maurice Stewart said. “We also did a lot of things that we can identify to improve upon moving forward into the Butler Invite and into the [Atlantic 10] Conference Championship.”

Freshman Allie Dvorchak and sophomore Hayden Engstrom both had season- best times in the meet— Dvorchak in the 200 butterfly (2:16:70) and Engstrom in the 100 backstroke (1:09:91).

“Our girls definitely raced better and had a better focus as the meet went on,” Stewart said. “Our team spirit [also] was much improved.”

The Bulldogs will next host Xavier, Hillsdale, Ball State, Illinois State, IUPUI and Green Bay in the Butler Invitational at Fishers High School Sunday.
