              Still with a limited roster, the Patriot swim teams have showed steady improvement in the first three meets of the season.

“The swimmers we have improved their times each meet,” said first year coach Lindsey Pfoff. “Now it is just a matter of getting the others eligible. I hope to have a least four on the women’s team next semester and one or two more on the men’s team.”

Through the meets during the first semester, St. Catharine has had just two swimmers, Laura Edelen and Jacob Williams, eligible to compete for points at each meet although others have participated independently.

After a scrimmage meet at Campbellsville University the Patriots swam at Asbury University on October 26th and at Lindsey Wilson October 27th. At Asbury, Edelen, a sophomore from Danville, Ky., finished fourth in the 200 yard freestyle in 2:30.34. She took third place in the 100 yard butterfly with a time of 1:20.16.

At the Asbury meet Williams placed second in the 100 yard butterfly in 1:04.18. The sophomore from Indianapolis finished first in the 500 yard freestyle in 6:01.98.

At the Lindsey Wilson meet Edelen was fourth in the 100 yard freestyle in 13:44.94. She was fourth in the 100 yard freestyle with a time of 1:11.73.

Williams took second place at Lindsey Wilson in the 100 yard freestyle in 11:49.92. He also finished second in the 100 yard breast stroke in 1:15.88. He took nearly 18 seconds off his time in the 500 yard freestyle from the first meet and finished third in 5:44.17.

The Patriots are back in the pool for a two day meet at Union college in Barbourville, Ky. on November 30-December 1st.
