Clara Monges is a freshman on the women's swim team from Toulon, France. In her first collegiate swim meet she played a crucial role in the Lady Lions defeating Limestone College by a score of 116-88. This was a big win for the team because it is the first time in school history that the ladies have beaten Limestone in a dual meet. Monges has an impressive set of results from the meet: 2nd 200 med r. (50 fly split 26.62) fastest EC fly split ever, 1st 200 free (1:58.14) missed school record by .15 seconds, and 2nd 100 free (54.32) which is a new EC school record.
