After dominating performance at Campbellsville, Hannah Spaulding (Springfield, Ky.) led the Nautical Patriots into Union College to take on a powerful Bulldog squad.
Spaulding led things off for the Patriots in the 200 Freestyle posting a 2:09.27 in the final round, just off her 2:06 mark in the seeding heat. Spaulding’s performance was good enough to snag a third place finish and marked a 16 second improvement over her 2:25 mark at Campbellsville. In the 1000 yard Freestyle Martha Raley (Lebanon, Ky.) took home a second place finish as she defeated a Union swimmer by 1:20 in the seeding heat and edged her out in the finals by 20 seconds. Raley continued her success in the 500 Freestyle, bringing home a fifth place finish with a 6:42.10 just outside of fourth place. In the 200 Breast Stroke, Spaulding would grab another third place finish when she posted a 2:41.14, staying 20 seconds ahead of fourth place and just four seconds behind the second place finisher.
With Spaulding just outside of the national tournament, the Patriots will hit the water hard and look to make a final push as they finish out their season.
