WOMEN SWIMMING DEFEATS LIMESTONE 116-88

Gaffney, SC; The Lady Lion's traveled to Gaffney, SC on Saturday, January 21st, to compete against Limestone College and University of North Carolina Pembroke in a Tri meet. EC was victorious in both meets, defeating Limestone 116-88 and defeating UNC-Pembroke by a score of 169-19.

Head Coach, Allen Gilchrest commented; "This is the first time our ladies have defeated Limestone in dual meet competition, so we are really happy with the results! We knew Limestone might win the 4 shorter sprint events and they did, but we also knew we could win the other 7 distance and stroke events, which we did. Our Seniors have been working hard to win this meet every year, they swam really hard and I am especially happy for them and thankful to God as He continues to bless our team this season."
