Women’s swim and dive collect three wins against DI competitor

This past Wednesday, Jan. 17, the women’s swim and dive team took on Division I Stonehill college in a women’s only meet as the opponents do not have a men’s program. 

Though the Judges lost this meet 104-61, there were three individual wins among other impressive performances. 

The lone double-winner in this meet for the Judges was Chloe Gonzalez ’25. She won the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:58.75 and the 50 free with a time of 25.52 seconds. Gonzalez won both events with large winning margins over her competitors. She also went on to place second in the 50 butterfly with a time of 27.38, only missing first place by 0.46 seconds. 

The Judges’ third win was picked up by Monica Iizuka ’24 who won the 50 backstroke with a time of 27.08. She won this event by 0.41 seconds. Third in the same event was Anastasia Bekou ’25 with a time of 28.03. 

Following the 50 backstroke, Iizuka placed third in the 200 free with a time of 2:04.74. 

After placing third in the 50 backstroke, Bekou then turned in a 100-yard individual medley with a time of 1:03.21. 

Though the Judges were edged out by the Stonehill Skyhawks in each of the standard relays, they still had solid performances. 

The 200 medley relay was composed of Bekou, Gonzalez, Iizuka and Becca Kaplan ’26. This team finished in a time of 1:50.40, only 0.24 seconds behind Stonehill. 

The 200 free relay team for the Judges was made up of Bekou, Gonzalez, Iizuka and D’Arcy Anselmi ’26. They finished second behind Stonehill in a time of 1:40.41, only trailing by 0.17 seconds. 

Looking ahead, the Judges men’s and women’s swim and dive teams will celebrate Senior Day on Jan. 20 when they host Keene State College and Bridgewater State College at noon.
