DURHAM, N.H. - Kristen Nardozzi (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and Shannon Daly (Brightwaters, N.Y.) both won two individual events to propel the University of New Hampshire women's swimming & diving team to Friday evening's 179-57 victory against Central Connecticut State University at Swasey Pool.
UNH won 10 of 13 events to improve to 4-0 on the season.
Nardozzi displayed her versatility by recording the fastest time in both the 1000-yard freestyle (10:34.00) and 100 backstroke (1:00.19). Daly, who broke the UNH record in the 1000 free last weekend, captured the two individual events in which she competed -- the 100 free (53.51) and 100 breaststroke (1:06.22). The duo was also swam two of the legs on the winning 200 free relay team. Jaime Crowley (Plainville, Conn.) and Amanda Paul (Reston, Va.), who won the 50 free with a time of 25.15, completed that relay team.
Nardozzi's effort led to a UNH sweep of the top three positions in both races. Tate Jerussi (Framingham, Mass.) and Michelle Kellerman (East Providence, R.I.) followed in the 1000 free. In the 100 back, Amanda Crawford (Hillsdale, N.J.) and Whitney Rohrer (Kinnelon, N.J.) were second and third, respectively, to touch the wall.
The 'Cats also took the top three places in the 100 free as Daly was followed by Kate Rock (Cheshire, Conn.) and Erica Douvadjian (Andover, Mass.).
The Wildcats were uncontested in the pair of diving events. Heather Brogan (Hudson, N.H.) took first place in both the 1-meter (233.70 points) and 3-meter (237.68). Rebecca Totten (West Bath, Maine) was the runner up in both events while Melissa Sullivan (Freemont, N.H.) took third place in the 1-meter and Christine Hewitt (Chappaqua, N.Y.) was third in the 3-meter.
The other individual Wildcat win was by Melissa Lague (Salem, N.H.) in the 400 individual medley with a time of 4:39.14.
UNH finished 1-2-3 in the 200 free relay and took the top two places in the 400 medley relay.
