FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Colorado State suffered its sixth consecutive loss of the season after dropping a 177-120 decision at Northern Arizona Saturday afternoon at the Wall Aquatic Center.
Senior Breann Fuller took first place in the 100 Backstroke with a time of 1:03.02. Fuller hasn’t disappointed in any of her backstroke performances this season, and hopes to continue her consistency into the Mountain West Championships (Feb. 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 Backstroke. Garvey (2:21.10) came in first, just ahead of her freshman teammate Shepard (2:21.59).
Kelly Mathews claimed first in the 100 Breaststroke after finishing with a time of 1:13.48. Mathews holds the fastest times on the team in both of the breaststroke events. In the 100 and 200 Breaststroke 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 at Moby Pool.
CSU will welcome Boise State to Fort Collins on Saturday for a 12:30 p.m. meet. Admission is free.
