FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – CSU (0-6) came away with their sixth consecutive loss of the season against Northern Arizona (5-4), Saturday at the Wall Aquatic Center.
Senior Breann Fuller took first place in the 100 Back. Fuller hasn’t disappointed in any of her backstroke performances and hopes to continue her consistency in the Mountain West championships February 20-23. Fuller has totaled four victories in backstroke events in her three-year experience at the Championships.
Yana Garvey and Jessica Shepard filled out the Rams’ unbeatable backstroke team with their powerful times in the 200 Back. Garvey (2:21.10) came in first just ahead of her freshman teammate Shepard (2:21.59) in second.
Kelly Mathews claimed first in the 100 Breaststroke. Mathews holds the fastest times on the team in both of the breaststroke events. In the 100 and 200 Breast at the 2012 Championships, Mathews placed in the top 15 athletes. With even more speed this time around, Mathews should prove to be a high-scorer for the Rams.
This meet broke the Rams two-month break from competition and leads them into three more meets before the Championships, two of which will be home meets for the Rams.
The Rams will welcome Boise State to Moby Pool, Saturday, January 26 at 12:20 p.m. Admission is free.
