Notre Dame Women's Swimming Falls to No. 10 Minnesota

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame's women's swimming and diving team dropped its third-straight dual meet as No. 10 Minnesota defeated the Irish 176-124. The loss drops Notre Dame's record to 5-4 while Minnesota is a perfect 7-0.

The Gophers took a 26-10 lead after the first two events before the Irish won four of the next five events to take a 69-62 lead. Alison Newell won the 200 freestyle, Erin Brooks won the 100 backstroke, Liz Barger won the 200 butterfly and Linda Gallo won the 50 freestyle to spark the Irish to the short-lived lead.

Minnesota then won the one-meter diving and 100 freestyle to open up a 90-79 lead before Notre Dame rallied by taking three of the top four spots in the 200 backstroke to knot the score at 94-94. Brooks won her second event as she claimed the 200 backstroke with Allison Hollis second and Molly Beeler in fourth place.

The Gophers would then pull away as they won the last six events, including the top three spots in the 200 breaststroke, to secure the 176-124 win.

Notre Dame returns to the pool with a 4:00 p.m. dual meet against Southern Illinois on Jan. 31.
