GETTYSBURG, PA. -- Bryn Mawr Swimming closed out their calendar year races at the Gettysbur Invitational earlier Saturday morning. The Owls had two student athletes in action on day two of the Gettysburg Invitational; Lillian Oyen-Ustad and Hannah Soisson. Both athletes put up outstanding performances and it was evident that their momentum from day one carried over into their day two performances.
Lillian Oyen-Ustad competed in the 200 yard freestyle in the morning session. In a field of 22 other competitors the junior swimmer landed a 12th place finish overall in a time of 2:03.88 finishing right behind Shannon Boner from Dickinson College. Her time of 2:03.88 landed her a season best for the event as she shaved off more than three seconds from her previous time this season. In the evening session Oyen-Ustad raced in the 50 yard freestyle. Her time of 25.35 landed her a sixth place finish and beat out 27 other competitors. With the race the junior captain will have another season best performance underneath belt.
In the morning session of day two freshman Hannah Soisson swam in the 100 yard Breaststroke and performed very well. Her time of 1:12.59 earned her a 13th place finish out of 20 other qualifying swimmers. Soisson's time of 1:12.59 landed her a huge PR for the season as she shaved off nearly one second in her race. In the evening session Soisson raced in the 200 yard IM finishing in a time of 2:31.59
The Owls will now get a chance to recover and continue training following their very busy fall semester. Bryn Mawr will return to action in the third week of January, as they will travel to Mount Holyoke for this year's Seven Sisters Championship.
