Cleveland, Ohio- The Cleveland State women's swimming and diving team defeated Gannon 162-55 on Friday afternoon at Robert F. Busbey Natatorium.
"The two swimmers that really jumped out were Rowan Elbadry and Alex Johansson. The other swimmer that had an impressive meet was Hayley Smith. She was very impressive. It was good to have Nikki Kolis back swimming for us again. I was really pleased with a senior on our team, Erin Jajtner who won the 1,000 free. That to me was incredibly impressive. She did it with a time of 10:51.76. A lot of swimmers contributed and it was a total team effort."
