Swimming: Team takes fourth in home meet

On Jan. 27, the Butler swim team hosted the Butler Invitational.

The Bulldogs finished in fourth place with a total of 289 points behind Xavier, IUPUI and winner Illinois State.

Sophomore Lauren Scotti had only positive things to say about the team’s ongoing season.

“I feel like, this year, we have a lot more skill on the team and depth in certain events,” Scotti said. “We have a really good variety of girls that can help us out.”

Scotti finished in the top 10 in all three of her events last weekend.

Freshman Abby Gibbons did well at the invitational, contributing to the eighth-place finish in the 200-medley relay.

Looking to the team’s future, Elizabeth Miller— another contributor to the team’s fourth-place finish— seemed optimistic about the incoming additions.

“We are bringing in a great group of freshmen so far,” Miller said. “We have four or five girls that have already committed, and that’s always a positive. I think we’ll be good.”

The team’s next competition is at Valparaiso on Feb. 2.
